Mariah will have a little girl to share her love of couture clothing. Nick will have a boy to buddy around with!

We were all guessing, two boys or two girls?  Well now, Mariah Carey confirms that she and Nick Cannon are expecting a boy and a girl! “It’s all about pink and blue these days,” a friend of the couple tells Life & Style. “It’s truly going to be a dream come true for them. They get a son and daughter.” How exciting!

Nick’s Valentine’s Day surprise for Mariah!

Mariah, 40, is overjoyed and was just as surprised as anyone to find out she gets one of each. “Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything gender-neutral because I didn’t want to impose an identity on them too soon,” Mariah tells Life & Style. “There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumors about them being two boys or two girls — but nobody guessed this!” We’re surprised too, Mariah!

Mariah’s red pregnancy dress — love it or loathe it?

And maybe the baby boy and girl have different taste buds, because Mariah’s pregnancy cravings have been changing from day to day. First it was McDonald’s cheeseburgers, then it was caramel apples, now it’s pork chops and pecan pie! “Last night we had smothered pork chops, collard greens, red beans and rice and a pecan pie with homemade whipped cream,” Nick, 30, tells People. “She cooks it, tastes it, but instead of laying up and eating it, I end up eating it. I think she craves it, but once she cooks it and smells it then the cravings go away.”

Congrats on the great news, Mariah and Nick! We can’t wait to meet your son and daughter!
