Nick Cannon’s comedic skills are a plus when it comes to dealing with his pregnant wife’s ups and downs!
Once a diva, always a diva! Expectant mommy Mariah Carey is experiencing some major mood swings and taking it out on the person she loves the most — hubby Nick Cannon! Good thing he’s got a sense of humor! “Mariah’s got a heart of gold, but everybody knows she’s got a diva streak and she has her moments of terror,” a friend of the couple tells InTouch magazine. “And to be honest, Nick gets yelled at — a lot!”
Luckily, Nick, 30, keeps his wife laughing through her moodiness! “Nick just deflects Mariah’s mood swings by making her laugh,” says the friend. “Usually he turns it into a joke.” The chairman of TeenNick cable network and host of America’s Got Talent and his own radio show in New York is currently in the midst of his self-titled stand-up comedy show and has managed to roll with Mariah’s ups and downs.
And considering Mariah, 40, complains about everything from her lack of sleep to “Nick leaving his shoes where Mariah might trip over them,” his humor is a must in the Cannon-Carey household! “He can transform any crying jag that Mariah is enduring into a laughing fit,” the source says. “That’s why he’s the perfect guy for her. Besides, it’s all about the end game for them — bringing their baby into the world!”
