Songstress Mariah Carey has opened up about why she won’t ever have any more children on the show Watch What Happens Live. The mom of twins Moroccan and Monroe said that she had a difficult pregnancy when she carried them.
“The Art of Letting Go” singer, 43 admitted, “I had pre-eclampsia; I had gestational diabetes.” She went on to say: “[It was] a really difficult pregnancy and I was alone most of the time …we love Nick, but he was working! He’s the hardest working man in show business.”
Pre-eclampsia affects up to 5% of pregnancies and can pose a serious threat to the health of the baby and mother. Symptoms include high blood pressure and swelling of the face, hands, and feet.
Mariah was in good spirits as she joked that if her husband (actor and rapper Nick Cannon) could carry a baby, she would love to expand her brood. “If Nick could have the babies himself, then maybe. Then, bring ’em on. We love kids!”
The singer (who is belting out “All I Want for Christmas” every time I turn on the radio at the moment!) claimed she was more than happy with her family and feels content with her two children, saying: “‘Nick and I have a boy and a girl, I couldn’t ask for better.”
Meanwhile she and Cannon have been posting pics on Instagram of their family holiday in Aspen. Looks blissful!
