The songstress revealed that after her extremely difficult pregnancy with her twins, she is confident she doesn’t ever want to be pregnant again. She suffered through scary medical complications — and her husband, Nick, was so busy working that she often felt alone.
Mariah Carey said that after her experience with being pregnant with her now 2-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, she is done having children. She revealed on a Dec. 22 appearance on Watch What Happens Live that she would be up for expanding her family, however, — if her husband Nick Cannon would be the one to deliver the babies!

Mariah cited her troubles with preeclampsia and gestational diabetes as her major health concerns during her pregnancy with the twins. “To anyone who has ever carried twins, it is a totally different experience … You don’t even know who you are,” Mariah revealed.
Mariah also explained that Nick’s busy schedule kept him away from her side for much of her pregnancy. “I had a very difficult pregnancy, but I was alone most of the time,” she shared. “We love Nick, but he’s working. He’s the hardest-working man in show business.”
