Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon have revealed that they are expecting both a boy and a girl.
MARIAH CAREY, the 41-year-old American singer who recently announced that she was pregnant with twins, has revealed that she is due to have a boy and a girl.
Speaking to Life & Style Magazine, Carey said, "There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumours about them being two boys or two girls - but nobody guessed this!", before adding, "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". The singer also posted a link to the Life & Style interview on her Twitter page. After intense media speculation, the couple revealed they were expecting their first child back in October 2010. However, shortly before the Christmas holiday, Cannon announced that Carey was pregnant with twins.
The singer released her thirteenth studio album in November 2010, entitled 'Merry Christmas II You'. The record included six original songs as well as her classic festive track 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' and debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200.
