Mariah Carey Passes on Champagne Toast with Ellen…Because she’s expecting?

November 26, 2008

(ChattahBox) — Mariah Carey was left squirming in her chair during her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres talkshow – after the comedienne quizzed her over pregnancy rumors. The singing superstar who swapped vows with now 28-year-old Nick Cannon in April, was a guest on the program on Tuesday  to promote her new single, ‘I Stay In Love’. The Emmy-winning talk-show host had to ask about guest Mariah Carey’s rumored expectant status. But while she pretended to let the pop diva off the hook Tuesday after receiving an elusive, “No, that’s OK [to ask],”  DeGeneres then slyly offered up a glass of champagne to ring in the non-news.  after which Mimi became all flustered, first going the feigned shock route and then trying to insist that 3 p.m. was too early for her to start drinking.

“You don’t have to answer that. Let’s just toast with champagne,”

“I can’t believe you did this to me, Ellen,” laughed the Grammy winner. “This is peer pressure!”

“No, let’s toast to you not being pregnant,” Ellen insisted.

“I can’t believe her,” Mariah said. “Why would we toast to that? How about to the future? For both of our futures, who knows what they hold.”

She then only pretended to sip the bubbly.

So on second thought…”You’re pregnant,” Ellen said.

But still Mariah resisted: “I didn’t say that. No, no, no. My mother would be at home like, on the computer like, What are you talking about? We will let you know when we’re going to have a family.”

Mimi recently insisted she would keep any baby news secret so was she just living up to her word?
