Mariah Carey Reveals Why She Won't Have More Children

Singer Mariah Carey admits her pregnancy was tough and lonely and that there won't be any more kids on the way…

Mariah Carey has revealed that pregnancy has put her off having more children.

'I had a difficult pregnancy and was alone most of the time,’ said the 43-year-old star, who’s mum to two-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe and married to Nick Cannon. ‘... We love Nick, but he was working! He's the hardest working man in show business.’

The singer wasn’t just on her own, her bump came with its own health issues, too, ‘I had pre-eclampsia, I had gestational diabetes,' Mariah explained on the US talk show Watch.

The singer had such a tough and lonely time carrying her twins, she’s decided she doesn't want to put herself through the experience again, unless, she joked, Nick was doing the hard work. ‘If Nick could have the babies himself, then maybe. Then, bring 'em on.’

Obvs, not going to happen, but luckily, Mariah’s content with her existing brood, ‘Nick and I have a boy and a girl, I couldn't ask for better.’
