Nick Cannon Talks Having Babies With Mariah: 'We Would Love To Expand'

After a report surfaced on Wednesday claiming that Mariah Carey was four months pregnant, husband Nick Cannon continued to dodge questions about a possible baby when Access Hollywood caught up with him on Wednesday.

“When she’s ready to say whatever she wants to say, she’ll say it,” Nick told Access backstage at “America’s Got Talent” on Wednesday night when asked about his wife. “She’s like, appreciating all the love that’s coming out… from everywhere, but it’s just like when she’s ready to talk she’ll talk.”

As for his desire to be a dad, Nick has his sights on increasing the Cannon-Carey brood.

“That’s the purpose of having a union and getting married is to have a family,” Nick told Access. “Right now, her and I are family, but of course we would love to expand.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, according to Radar Online, Mariah is four months pregnant. One Radar source claimed that Nick has been sharing the news only with close friends.

As of Thursday morning, a rep for Mariah was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Access Hollywood.

Mariah stirred speculation by appearing very pregnant on stage in Brazil this past weekend.
