Mariah Carey Quits Her Latest Movie: Is She Pregnant?

The singer and Precious star is causing fans to wonder if she and Nick Cannon are starting a family

Is there a baby diva in the works for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon? Sources are buzzing that Carey may be pregnant, ever since news broke that the superstar has walked away from her role in a new Tyler Perry movie.

Carey, who was cheered for her performance in last year's Precious, was set to appear in the upcoming film adaptation of the 1975 play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, by Ntozake Shange. Filming was set to start next month. But on Tuesday Carey abruptly withdrew from the project.

"I'm not at liberty to discuss her personal life at this time," Carey's spokeswoman Cindi Berger says, declining to give a reason for Carey's withdrawal.

It seems like Carey and Cannon, who celebrated their second anniversary recently with a vow-renewal ceremony, are constantly denying baby rumors -- but maybe it's because they can't stop talking about having one!

"We're going to do it, and when we do it, we're going to let you all know," Cannon said last year. "But right now, we're trying to enjoy the newlywed aspect."

Echoing her hubby's sentiment in November 2009, Carey told Larry King: "I cannot do the having-a-child thing halfway. I wouldn't be just like, 'Oh, I'm having a child, yay! Let me get a nanny so I can give her the baby. Take the kid.' That doesn't work me. I don't believe in that."
