We guess we won't really know until if/when an announcement is made, but we're thinking this could be legit!
The reason for the secrecy?
Mariah is superstituous about her age, and had to go under fertility treatment to conceive - and she plans to make the announcement while promoting her new album, Merry Christmas II You!
The insider elaborates:
“She’s having a boy, but the reason that Mariah didn’t want to say anything is because she is 40, and she’s superstitious. But she’s going to appear on Oprah and The View, so she’s planning on making the announcement soon. They haven’t decided whether they’ll raise the baby in New York or Los Angeles. The fertility drugs were the reason for her weight gain earlier this year. She stopped drinking back in March or April this year.”
Wow! Again, none of this would be unexpected, but we'll wait to hear it from Mimi's mouth before we accept it as truth!
But if so, congratulations, bb! What a wonderful gift!
