Long before the news was official people were wondering, "is Mariah pregnant?" -- "is it a boy, or a girl?" ..."or both?" Well this morning on his 92.3 Rollin With Nick Cannon Morning Show, the daddy to be put the wonderment to rest. He described a moment when Mariah was performing at TNT's Christmas In Washington on Sunday and ran into The President and First Lady Michelle Obama backstage.:

"They, ironically enough, questioned my wife about, you know, 'So, what are you having, are you having twins? And at this point she hadn't told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along. And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed [and] she shared with the President and First Lady that we are having twins."

The two have been overly cautious about making details public about their trek to parenthood that included a miscarriage in 2008, but Cannon said when President Barack Obama asked she couldn't keep the secret. Still no due date from the expecting couple.
