Mariah Carey's man Nick Cannon is the ideal husband

Having confirmed the rumors that Mariah Carey is pregnant with their first child Mariah took the opportunity to talk about her husband comedian and presenter Nick Cannon.

Having confirmed the pregnancy on Thursday Nick Cannon was then seen popping out to the supermarket to collect an assortment of groceries including beef jerky. I hope that was for Mariah's pregnancy cravings.

Mariah also revealed this week that she had a miscarriage two years ago and was utterly heart broken.

They are both hugely excited by the prospect of being parents.

Speaking on "American's Today Show" Cannon said they "had names picked out from the first day we met and we want to stay true to that.”
