Mariah Carey was so excited about her birthday that she almost popped out her twins this weekend.
The singer informed her fans via Twitter that she was rushed to the hospital after she began having contractions on Friday. The scare came just two days before her “anniversary” (aka birthday), which was on March 27.
“So #dembabies really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital,” she tweeted Saturday.
Mimi didn’t have to stay very long as doctors deemed the contractions a false alarm and sent her and hubby Nick Cannon on their merry way. Truth be told, though, Mariah wouldn’t have minded having her babies arrive ahead of schedule.
“Finally they said I could come home after they got it under control,” Mariah wrote later. “[The twins] almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary in deed!!! We have a few more weeks 2 go but- wow!!!: ) #soreadyallready!”
Nick could consider this scare a dry run for the actual delivery. And now that he’s been through it once, he should be a little more calm for the real thing.
The TV host tweeted that he’s so nervous about the impending birth of his babies that he might pass out. “I am probably going to faint in the delivery room,” he admitted on Twitter. “I need to man up!”
Nick quickly decided to give credit where credit is due, to the mommies. “I should say WOMAN UP since they are the ones that have to be the strongest in the whole ordeal,” he mused. “I am in awe of my wife!”
