We’ve had a sneaking suspicion ever since she refered to her growing bump as ‘they’, but now it’s official – Mariah Carey is having twins!

Her hubby Nick Cannon confirmed the double dose of good news on his ‘Rollin With Nick Cannon’ radio show on Thursday morning, according to the LA Times.

"We are having twins," the proud dad-to-be told his listeners.

But while the pair struggled to stay tight lipped about their happy news, there was one couple they just couldn’t keep the news from – President Obama and the First Lady Michelle!

"They, ironically enough, questioned my wife about, you know, 'So, what are you having, are you having twins?' And at this point, she hadn't told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along," he said.

"Because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed... she shared with the president and first lady that we are having twins."

Congrats Mimi and Nick! We can’t wait to see the awkward matching outfits you kit them out in!
