A Carey representative neither confirmed nor denied the pregnancy reports.
When contacted, Mariah’s longtime rep Cindi Bergergave RadarOnline.com a rather cryptic comment. “I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time,” the publicist told RadarOnline.com, a statement that did not outwardly deny the pregnancy. (Radar Online)
The couple have been married for over two years.
Although the couple has made no secret of their desire to start a family since they wed on April 30, 2008, they’ve relished their child-free years by renewing their vows and holding true to other traditions. (OK Magazine)
