Nick Cannon is about to become a three-time dad, but apparently his ex-wife Mariah Carey found out about the huge news only last week! Speaking out about Nick’s baby news for the 1st time, the star revealed in a shocking interview that he actually kept the news from her and she had no idea until after it went public! See what she has to say about the whole thing here.
Mariah Carey, 46, was NOT in the loop on this one! Nick Cannon, 36, revealed just last week, on Nov. 17 that he’s about to become another dad! Confirming the news in a radio interview with The Breakfast Club, Nick said that yes, his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell is in fact pregnant with his third child!
But although Mariah and Nick claim to still be friends, Mariah revealed in a Nov. 23 interview with Extra‘s Mario Lopez, that the news completely took her by surprise — and that Nick didn’t even have the respect to tell her himself — ouch! “This is all news to me,” Mariah told Mario when asked how she feels about Nick fathering another women’s baby.
“I didn’t know about this till maybe last week. I asked him a question and then he kinda said yes, but didn’t, and I’m like, it’s kinda confirmed.” Come on, Nick, really? Even when Mariah confronted him, he couldn’t man up? But at least Mariah apparently isn’t one to hold grudges! “I’ll always be supportive of him,” she added. “If he’s happy that’s great.” We love Mariah’s super mature reaction!
Mariah also opened up about her recent — and very public — split from billionaire James Packer, 49. And while she didn’t give her fans much, she did confirm that she’s doing well. “I’m definitely not distraught,” she said of her current state of mind. With Ellen DeGeneres, the singer added that the breakup is a “whole friggin’ thing,” but that “things happen for a reason.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously told you, Nick and Mariah actually plan on spending the holidays together — including getting in some family bonding time — the duo share two children together, twins Moroccan and Monroe, 5 — on Thanksgiving. “Nick will be seeing Mariah and their kids over Thanksgiving and the holiday season,” Nick’s dad, James Cannon, revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY. “There are no bad feelings between him and Mariah, everything is ‘cool.’”
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you shocked Nick didn’t tell Mariah about his soon-to-be-born baby sooner?
