Mariah Carey is reportedly in labor Friday, on April Fools Day, and Nick Cannon is rushing back to New York to be there when he becomes a daddy to twins.
Cannon posted on his Twitter this morning that he was on a plane back to NY and “Praying Dem Babies wait for DADDY.”
Carey has had a false alarm before. Over the weekend she was hospitalized after experiencing contractions.
Carey tweeted from the hospital, giving updates to her fans, but was soon released. But that didn’t last for long. Carey, said to be due in April, is back in the hospital and it sounds like this time it’s the real deal.
Carey posted a picture of her belly on Twitter this week with a butterfly painted on it, calling it her “attempt at festiveness.”
Carey, 42, and Cannon, 30, were married in 2008. These will be the first children for both of them. They are expecting one boy and one girl.
Carey confirmed the flutter of pregnancy rumors back in October 2010 and revealed that she had gotten pregnant soon after they were married, but she had miscarried.
After Carey slipped and referred to the child as ‘they’ on the radio, Cannon later confirmed that they were expecting twins.
