Mariah Carey’s set to become a mum!

A source close to the pop diva and her hubby Nick Cannon has confirmed the couple are expecting a new addition.

“They’re both very excited and very happy,” says the source. “Mariah and Nick want to keep the pregnancy quiet as long as they can.”

Nick attempted to put the public off the scent this week, by tweeting,

"If & when my wife is ready to make ANY announcements about private matters she will do it personally."

But rumours have been running rife since Mimi was spotted outside a Los Angeles medical clinic last month, and they amplified after she pulled out of her role in Tyler Perry’s new film.

Last year the former MTV host revealed he couldn’t wait to have a baby with his songstress wife.

At the time, he said, “We’re definitely into planning a family and stuff but when everything calms down and we get the time.”
