Is Mariah Carey Having A Boy & A Girl?


In mid-December, Nick Cannon officially confirmed to the world that he and wife Mariah Carey were pregnant with twins. Today, Life & Style magazine is making the claim that Mimi will be giving birth to a boy and a girl. Now, let’s be real here … whether or not Mariah will have a boy and a girl, two boys or two girls is anyone’s guess … but, let’s entertain for a moment that L&S might be right … and wouldn’t that be so cool?

Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon are expecting a boy–and a girl! “It’s all about pink and blue these days,” a friend of the couple tells Life & Style. “It’s truly going to be a dream come true for them. They get a son and daughter.” And Mariah couldn’t be happier. “Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything genderneutral because I didn’t want to impose an identity on them too soon,” Mariah tells Life & Style with a laugh. “There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumors about them being two boys or two girls — but nobody guessed this!” … They’re set to welcome their bundles of joy in April. “It’s been a long journey–but a happy one,” says mom-to-be Mariah.

IF Mariah and Nick are having a boy and a girl then that would be just too perfect for their growing family. But I’m not quite willing to believe this report just yet. Nick spoke recently to RadarOnline and expressly made clear that the color scheme for the babies’ nursery is mostly green, not pink and blue:

“Last night we went nursery and furniture shopping. They’re going to have a very interesting layout. We picked a lot of colors and one of the main colors is green.”

I mean, again, we really don’t know anything for sure just yet … but wouldn’t it be so nice if Mimi and Nick really did have a boy and a girl?

      Sometimes when women get fertility treatments, they are at risk for multiple births or fraternal twins (2 eggs). It is less likely that they would have identical twins, which is the result of 1 egg splitting. Having 2 eggs that end up being 2 different sexes isn’t unusual.

    I kind of took Mariah and Nick as being the kind of couple that would want the babies genders to be a surprise(not find out until they are born).

  • rachel

    As a Mom of boy/girl twins, I was told that It’s a 50% chance of boy/girl twins vs. 25% both both or 25% both girls (if they’re fraternal). The numbers are her favour to have one of each.

    I’m happy for them, as long as mariah gets her girl… i think that it was almost necessary that she has a girl…lol But i’m sure she’ll be happy with whatever comes out as long as their healthy…
