Showing off an extra-curvy figure, mom-to-be Mariah Carey hit the stage in Fayetteville, Ark. on Friday to sing for Wal-Mart shareholders. It's the first time the diva has stepped out in public since a pal confirmed to Us that Carey is expecting.
Although Carey has yet to make a public announcement, she is "in the early stage of pregnancy," waiting until after the first trimester to share the big news, the pal says in the new Us Weekly.
Even her husband of two years Nick Cannon accidentally gushed about the pregnancy when chatting with fans in Malibu May 30. "Her bump is bigger. You can almost see it now...I'm very excited!"
Cannon, 29, later retreated a bit. "If & when my wife is ready to make ANY announcements about private matters she will do it personally," he wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.
The next morning, on his radio show, he added, "I'm pretty sure that when my wife is ready to make any announcement it won't be to the media, to the public, first," he said. "She'll tell her family, she'll tell her friends, and then, you know, when she's ready to share with the rest of the world, who is her extended family and friends, then she'll let everybody know."
