Mariah Carey feared sharing baby news

Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon has revealed that his singer wife was terrified of sharing news about her pregnancy after suffering a miscarriage.

The couple confirmed in October that they were expecting their first child, but Cannon claims that the decision to go public was not an easy one as they’d lost a baby before in 2008 shortly after their marriage.

Speaking on US talk show ‘The View’, Cannon said: "You're under such scrutiny from the media... from the day that people found out we were married, they were thinking it was a shotgun wedding, she was pregnant.

"So when we were pregnant the first time, trying to hold on to it [privacy], and then when we lost the pregnancy, it was just a really grey time, you don't know what to say, should you have told people, do you tell people? So this time I was like, let's stay positive, let's tell everyone early, and that's what we did."
