NEW YORK – Mariah Carey is going to be a mom twice over.

Nick Cannon (“America’s Got Talent“) announced on his radio show Thursday that his wife is expecting twins.

Said Cannon on New York’s 92.3 station: “I haven’t even told my wife I doing this so I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission. … We are having twins!”

Mariah Carey’s publicist Cindi Berger confirmed the news as well.

Cannon said two VIPs did get the scoop: President Barack Obama and wife Michelle. Carey told the first couple during a taping of a “Christmas in Washington” show.

Cannon added: “Both babies are healthy, in tiptop shape.”

Carey, 40, and Cannon, 30, have been the subject of a baby watch since they got married after a whirlwind romance two years ago.
