After months of speculation, singer Mariah Carey has finally confirmed she is expecting her first child.

“Yes, we are pregnant, it’s true,” Carey, 41, said on the US Today show on Thursday.

“It’s been a long journey. It’s been tough because I’ve been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy, and that was not easy.”

Husband Nick Cannon, 30, joined the interview to talk about the “absolutely emotional” news, adding, “The greatest gift on earth is a child.”

Carey, who also told of her miscarriage two years ago, would not reveal her due date. She would only say “it’s still early” and “expecting is great.”

Ever-supportive Cannon said of the loss, “It strengthened our relationship so much … she handled it so well.”

All the best to the expectant couple!
