Getty ImagesWe knew it! Nick Cannon confirmed on his radio show this morning that Mariah Carey is in fact carrying two bundles of joy in that belly of hers!

It’s official! Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are going to be having double the fun! “In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real,” Nick, 30, said on his radio show this morning (Dec. 16). “I didn’t even tell my wife I was gonna do this,” he admitted. “I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission…We are having twins!” Can you believe it, Hollymoms?

Nick sent a secret message about the twins!

Want to know who the first people were to discover the multiple news? The first couple! President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama learned of the exciting news after Mariah performed at the White House Christmas special! “They actually even questioned my wife about [the twins],” Nick said. “She hadn’t told anybody anything! Because of the excitement and emotion, she shared [the news] with the President and the first lady.” What a wonderful memory to have! Nick knows it will be an “awesome story” to tell the twins one day!

Mariah’s cravings go way beyond pickles and ice cream!

So, why keep this news hidden for so long? “That was something that we were advised to keep close to ourselves,” Nick revealed. “Everything is A-OK! Both babies are healthy and in tip-top shape. The doctors are happy.” We are so happy for Nick and Mariah!
