Mariah Carey sure knows how to keep a secret, although it sounds like she’s getting closer to confirming the big news that RadarOnline.com was first to report – that the Hero singer is four months pregnant.
“I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious,” the Grammy winning star said in a statement released via her publicist Wednesday. “When the time is right, everyone will know-even Cindi Berger [her publicist].”
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, while Carey is not yet going public with her big news, in private, it’s a different story. A source tells us that hubby Nick Cannon has been sharing the great news with very close friends.
This past Monday, Nick again dodged the pregnancy question.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it time and time again — when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her,” he said on his radio show on New York’s 92.3 FM.
Despite his public hesitation to confirm the news, RadarOnline.com’s insider says, “Nick has been telling friends how excited he is to be a dad.”
“Mariah has tried so hard to get pregnant,” a source told RadarOnline.com, adding that the singer has no plans to announce her pregnancy in the near future.
“She definitely wanted to get pregnant,” the source added.
“She’s very excited. She wants to wait as close to full term as possible before going public with the news to her fans.”
Mariah performed in Brazil last weekend, and her appearance only fueled speculation that she is pregnant.
