Because of her growing belly, the couple was forced to tell the world. “You can only keep a secret for so long,” Mariah says in an interview with USA Today.
So, what’s the reason they kept the pregnancy a secret for so long? Mariah suffered a miscarriage two years ago, so she and Nick “were careful to not just go off and call everybody the first time we took a pregnancy test.
Mariah reveals that were it not for a loving hubby like Nick, she wouldn’t want to have a baby at all.
“I would have never done this if I wasn’t in a strong, grounded relationship. I know you can do it by yourself. I’ve seen that, and it’s fine if it works for you,” she explains. “But I want my child to experience having a mother and father who live together and love each other, to feel secure in that.”
