Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have made no secret of their intentions to start a family since marrying last year, and now, a source tells Bossip, they're hoping to announce a pregnancy any day. "Mariah is well aware of her figure and at the present time, can't do anything about it," the catty source says, which we suppose is code for "She must be pregnant! She's vaguely three-dimensional!"
Mariah and Nick have already picked out names for their work in progress; yesterday she told Sirius Satellite Radio's Morning Mash Up, "We have to keep the name secret because if we told everybody, then somebody might use it and then we have to change it, and then it wouldn't be as good." Yes, that is a valid concern, unless of course you name your kid something like Sparkly Unicorn Hello Kitty Watermelon Carey-Cannon, which is going to be tough to fit on the back of a football jersey.

Mariah's latest album came out last week and so far sales have been lackluster, so she's been making the rounds of Oprah and The Today Show, giving the people what they want. Nick accompanied Mariah to Oprah, where they put on a bit of a live sex act for a show that airs at 4 p.m. Sure, it's great that they seem so in love, especially after Mariah's failed first marriage, but all the public displays of affection and shouting their love from the rooftops seem a little reminiscent of Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch. Take it down a notch, kids. It's a little crazy.
