Now that singer Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon have officially confirmed that she is pregnant, many people are asking themselves the same question: How old is Mariah Carey?

The answer? Mariah Carey is 40 years old.

The reason people are curious about Mariah’s age is probably because she and Nick waited so long to announce that they were expecting their first child together. The older a woman is, the more possible complications during pregnancy. There is especially a greater risk for women over the age of 35.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are no doubt overjoyed with their baby news, and we send them our best wishes for a happy and healthy newborn!
