Nick & Mariah Confirm They're Expecting TWINS! + Halle Berry & Sidney Poitier Cover "The Hollywood Reporter"

 

Nick Cannon confirmed today that he and Mariah Carey are expecting twins! Find out more deets inside, plus see the Halle Berry/Sidney Poitier cover of The Hollywood Reporter...

 

Earlier today, Nick Cannon got into the holiday spirit by handing out toys at a Build-a-Bear Workshop benefiting the Toys for Tots Foundation. Then he was asked by E! News to clear up the "twin" rumors  (he posted a Holiday card online for his fans and said he's thankful for "the new ADDITONS to his family") and Nick referred to his baby(ies) using a plural pronoun. Here's video of the proud papa:

Double mini-Mimi's?  Oh my!

For The Hollywood Reporter's 'Legends Issue' - 80th Anniversary - Sidney Poitier posed with Halle Berry representing the first African-Americans to win Oscars for best actor/actress.  Sidney for Lilies Of The Field (1964) and Halle for Monster's Ball (2002). They were shot by Peggy Sirota at Sidney's Beverly Hills home:

 

 

Halle commented in the issue about attempting to take baby Nahla to meet Mr. Porter.  Here's an excerpt:

 

One thing Sidney Poitier didn’t have in his leading-man heyday? Paparazzi. But on this December morning, Halle Berry, being Halle Berry, arrives at Poitier’s Beverly Hills home with her 2-year-old daughter Nahla — and four lensmen on her heels.

As they exit the car, Nahla sees the men and begins crying; the audience Berry wanted for her daughter with Poitier doesn’t happen, as Nahla is whisked away by a nanny.

“Sidney is part of our history,” says a disappointed Berry, who otherwise seems unfazed. “He’s a legend, and one day I knew she would thank me for allowing her to be in his presence.”

And what a mark he has made. It was a watershed moment in Hollywood when Poitier won the best actor Oscar for Lilies of the Field in 1963, becoming the first African American performer to do so. His victory, preceded by an Oscar nomination five years earlier for The Defiant Ones (1958), happened before Berry even was born. As a child, though, Berry eventually saw Lillies. “Wow. I was, even as a girl, madly in love,” she says. (To which Poitier jokes, “Now you tell me!”)

The legends issue hits newsstands nationwide Friday, Dec. 17.

After all those wonderful

After all those wonderful black female actors over the years who did not win, Halle is a big let down, her lack of talent is a bad trick on us. We feel like black people did not win still. Please give us a brake.

I knew it when I saw her on

I knew it when I saw her on the Christmas special. She looked just too big and uncomfortable this early on in her pregnancy for it to NOT be multiples. Twins occur at higher rates in women in the mid 30s and up, women her use fertility drugs, African American women, and of course, women with a history of twins in their family.

With all of these celebs

With all of these celebs having twins, I have to wonder if this is some sort of Hollywood ritual and/or new trend. Having twins use to be biological and rare, but now it seems like if you want twins, you can buy them at the clinic.

I'm not even going to bother

I'm not even going to bother reading most of these dumb ass comments coming from sad un-educated people behind a screen!! Since when does every person that gets blessed with twins have to somehow have fertility drugs???? Whose business is it anyway??? And also for you mis-informed idiots, if you do research you will know that women Mariahs age(40+) have a higher rate of having twins. So her age, coupled with the fact that twins run in Nick Cannon's family means she very well could have a much higher rate of having twins!!! GO GET EDUCATED BEFORE YOU SIT ON A BLOG AND BITCH ABOUT STUPID ISH!!!! SMH@the simpleness that has become YBF and it's NON-reading readers!!!
NO HATE!!!'s picture

I agree that we shouldn't

I agree that we shouldn't jump to conclusions, but the ignorance is in saying that there is a "higher rate of twins among women over 40". I work in the fertility industry and that is not true--at all. The reason women over 40 are having twins more than women under is because they are undergoing IVF or in-vitro fertilization, and they use typically use 2 embryos rather than 1 because it increases their chances of becoming pregnant. Sometimes, both embryos will take and there is a twin pregnancy. Sometimes, just 1 is successful and they are grateful they put 2 in so that they would be able to have at least 1. But understand that the vast majority of women over 40 NEED fertility assistance. For every year after 30, women lose an incredibly significant amount their fertility capabilities. Do not miss this--we don't have the luxury of endless time. If you're not planning to have children until later in life, FREEZE YOUR EGGS. I cannot stress this enough; I have tons of clients who wish they'd gotten the same advice years ago when they have to use an egg donor and/or IVF to achieve a pregnancy.

Are you kidding me? I guess

Are you kidding me? I guess someone forgot some of their biology. Twins (regardless if they are identical or not) is caused by a single egg being fertilized then splitting, or two eggs being fertilized at once. So just because a male has twins on his side of the family, doesn't mean he increases the chances of his offspring being twins. The chances of twins are passed maternally, not paternally. You may research this if you'd want. Also, just because someone uses in vitro to have twins doesn't make them bad people. Doesn't mean all people who comment on them are hateful either. The issue is when they lie about it and say it was natural. Now people in hollywood have the money to pay for in vitro. So I'm not surprised. Not assuming mariah did, but I'm not surprised if she did.

as opposed to the simpleness

as opposed to the simpleness of someone coming on to defend mariah carey? someone not in her family who she doesn't even know? twins are rare, regardless of whether more African-Americans have them or not. Twins are not more likely in a 40 plus woman without medical intervention as older eggs are less viable over time. Any doctor fertility specialist or not, can tell you that. Unless Nick is a twin and both of his parents were twins and he has a set of twin brothers, it's highly UNLIKELY that Mariah Carey conceived those twins naturally. Just like virtually every other over 40-mother out there with multiples, it's highly likely she had help. So educate yourself, honey. Having a "fact" and comprehending that fact in the real world are two different things. And no, I'm not a big Mariah fan, but not really a hater, either. I just think she's tacky as hell...and I think those kids will be raised by nannies and that Nick has bit off WAY more than he can chew here but hey, it's their life and their children's lives to mess up as they please.

Thank You!! In addition to

Thank You!! In addition to being an older mother, MC is also Black. People of African descent have a greater chance of having fraternal twins. I'm a twin. There are 5 sets on my mother's side and another set on my father's side. Please people, educate yourself on in vitro. Seriously. Most physicians who practice this type of medicine only implant 2 embryos MAX. These are guidelines set by their professional organization. Implanting a smaller number results in a healthier pregnancy, lowers the risk for miscarriage and extreme premature birth thus cutting the risk for developmental delays. Someone said something about termination and gender selection. Termination usually happens when someone STUPID (Octomom's doctor) implants all the embryos. That guy implanted 12 and probably will his license. He already got kicked out of his professional organization so that’s a wrap for him! Apparently he did it before to another woman. Before technology got good, doctors would implant more embryos to have a better outcome but they don’t have to do that anymore. Gender selection, while not illegal, is strongly strongly frowned upon and many doctors won't do it and tell the patient to go somewhere else. People usually want it for family balance. Bottom line: most doctors just implant the healthiest embryos and that’s it. Whether naturally conceived or with IVF, Mimi is going to have some cute kiddies and I can’t wait to see what they look like! They’ll be all over YBF next year :)

Congrats to them both, but I

Congrats to them both, but I just wish for once people would be honest about using invitro. I don't think it's anything to be ashamed about. And let's be honest. She's an older woman. And as someone mentioned early, the same things happened to Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, etc. Twins are not that common, yet these older famous women are having them left and right? Come on. Stop it already. If you want to be private, ok, fine. But a lot of times they flat out deny they used invitro or any fertility help at all. Come on, now. It's your life. If you used invitro, so what. If you don't want to talk about it, fine. But stop lying about it. It's silly.

Congrats to Mariah and Nick.

Congrats to Mariah and Nick. I predict boy and girl. Invitro fertilization is good for those that have difficulty conceiving but I was wonder how many did she terminate. Most of the time invitro can cause a woman to Have more than 2. Also, people with the right amount of money can choose the sex of their child, hence the boy and girl combination. Well anyway congrats to them. I believe they will be together for a long time
