Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are expecting twins
"She shared with the president and the first lady that we are having twins," Cannon said. "I haven't even told my wife I was doing this, so I am probably going to get yelled at for not getting permission."
The missus apparently couldn't keep mum when talking to to the first couple at the Sunday taping of "Christmas in Washington." Hey, when the first lady asks you a question, you tell her first, right?
The special, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, airs Friday on TNT. Carey has said she's expecting "in the spring."
