After months and months of trying to have baby the old-fashioned way, word has it that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have decided to go with plan B: adoption. Good for them, I hope it’s true.
As we reported last week, there were rumors that MC had a miscarriage, so the process hasn’t exactly been very positive for the 40-year-old pop diva.
Supposedly, Mariah is just dying to have a baby with Nick. Add to that the pressure of having a 28-year-old husband and a ticking biological clock, and you’ve got a recipe for major tension and stress. From The Globe:
“One recent night, Mariah woke up sobbing to Nick that she was so sorry she couldn’t give him a baby. He was angel. He held her and promised they’d get through this together…
“She feels like she’s been hit by a truck. The bottom line is that she can’t handle the emotional trauma of any more false starts,” the insider adds.
After seeing her dream of motherhood crumble, Mariah and Nick agreed to adopt,” says the source, who calls the decision bittersweet because Mariah had her heart set on having her own baby”
“Nick told Mariah, You’ll be a terrific mom. There are plenty of kids who need homes and we’ve got so much love to give. And who knows? Anything can happen. Maybe we’ll get lucky someday and have one of our own.”
Supposedly, Mariah and Nick are already in the process of researching adoption agencies in the US. Maybe the could get a baby faster if they talk to Madonna about the Malawi adoption system .
