After months of speculation, Mariah Carey is finally sharing her good news with fans — she and husband Nick Cannon are expecting their first child this spring. "We are pregnant! This is true!" a glowing Mariah told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush in a special segment on the Today show this morning. "The greatest gift on earth is a child," Nick, sitting next to his wife on a couch in their New York home, added. Despite their current joy, Mariah admits it has been “a long journey" for the couple — two years ago, she suffered a miscarriage. "During the day, she was so festive and smiley, and at night, crying herself to sleep," Nick said of Mariah's dark time. Though they remained mum on the "is she or isn't she" question, Nick could hardly contain his desire to be a dad when speaking with In Touch recently. "I’m a loving person, and I’d put that same type of energy toward my child as a father."
