It was almost baby time last night for Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon!
Singer Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon thought they were going to celebrate a lot more than Mariah’s birthday last night, as the diva was hospitalized after experiencing contractions. The 42 year old mother-to-be recounted the ordeal on her twitter account:
“really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital. They almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary in deed!!! We have a few more weeks 2 go but- wow!!!: )”
No reports that anything was wrong, and Mariah is back home with her twins still baking inside her belly. I’m sure she’ll be taking it extra easy over the next few weeks, as she is getting close to her due date.
Young husband Nick, who is 12 years Mariah’s junior, has been active on his twitter account in regards to his twins as well. On Thursday, he expressed a little anxiety about the whole birthing process:
“I am probably going to faint in the delivery room! I need to man up! Or maybe I should say WOMAN PU since they are the ones that have to be the strongest in the whole ordeal! I am in awe of my wife!”
Hopefully this will be the only hiccup for the diva as she approaches parenthood. Pregnancy didn’t come easy for the couple, and I would hate to see anything go wrong. They announced that Mariah had a bun in the oven back in October 2010, and which was exciting news after the miscarriage they experienced two years earlier. The pair, who met in 2008 while filming the video for her single “Bye Bye” on a private island off the coast of Antigua, married on April 30 that same year in a small private (and very surprising) ceremony at her estate on Windermere Island in the Bahamas.
