After Mariah's husband Nick Cannon sparked speculation that the pop diva could be close to giving birth to their twins, her representative steps forward to verify she is not in labor.
Mariah Carey's twins are not on their way. A short while after husband Nick Cannon ignited fresh speculation that she is close to give birth to their twin babies with his tweet, representative for the pop diva stepped forward to dismiss the rumor, insisting that the "Heartbreaker" hitmaker is not in labor just yet.
Nick posted the misleading tweet on Tuesday, March 29 while he was on a flight back to New York from Los Angeles. In his message, the "America's Got Talent" host wrote, "On a plane back to NY. Praying Dem Babies wait for DADDY to come back b4 they pop out! The Cornball Movement don't stop!"
The 30-year-old has recently spoken to Los Angeles Times about the false alarm Mariah experienced over the weekend. He recalled, "They're calling it a 'scare,' but really, it was just nerve-racking. We were in the hospital from 4 A.M. until I don't even know. The thing with twins is that you want them in their natural incubator as long as possible. They might be ready to come out, but we need them to stay in for a while."
On the hand-painted baby bump photo Mariah posted on Twitter recently, Nick explained, "That's her finding the fun and festiveness through the pain." Asked whether his singer wife is ready to welcome the new additions to their family, he said with a laugh, "She's super ready."
