During photo shoots and promotional events, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey look like the perfect couple. But Mariah Carey revealedmariah_carey_cannon during a recent interview that she spent one of the most difficult periods of her life alone.

In an interview with Andy Cohen during the show Watch What Happens Live,   Carey admitted that her husband Nick Cannon was nowhere around during her painful and difficult pregnancy.

Answering a fan’s question on whether 43-year-old Carey planned on giving her twins another brother or sister, Carey explained that her pregnancy was wrought with complications and she had no plans of having more kids.

“I had preeclampsia; I had gestational diabetes, a really difficult pregnancy and I was alone most of the time,” Carey explained.

Hearing the crowd’s reaction to her admission that she was alone during her pregnancy, Carey defended her man.

“We love Nick, but he’s working!” added Carey.

“He’s the hardest working man in show business. Hi, Nick!” she said.

In answering whether or not she would have more kids, she said definitively, “Nick and I have a boy and a girl, I couldn’t ask for better.”

She also acknowledged the responsibility of raising a family.

“I’m responsible for these children ’til forever so I look at it like, they didn’t ask for this lifestyle, here they are and it is so different than just being able to just be like, ‘OK, bye, well, I’m going here now, I just did a show, I’m leaving.’”

What do you think? Should Cannon have been around during his wife’s pregnancy or was he just doing what he had to do to be successful?

    Some people just don’t know how to keep their personal business to themselves. That comment makes him look bad even if it was not her intention.

    I’m disgusted that someone took a comment & ran with it. Mariah didn’t say she was neglected during her pregnancy, so why take it this far. This is how mess starts and relationships crumble. They’re blessed and happy, let’s leave them aline when it comes to negative press. Thanks!

    Well she had a HUSBAND working his azz off to make sure the bills got paid. Thats what a STRONG BLACK MAN does for his WIFE. I’m sure the females who pushed out 72% of out of wedlock black children can’ relate to having a good man working.

    Agreed with the first poster – that really was too much information on Carey’s part. if you’ve got preeclampsia, there’s not much anyone can do for you, other than to make sure you’re resting. What did she expect him to do – sit and stare at her 24/7? Chances are she was in capable medical hands and was probably told that by her doctor.

    In most cases, men feel helpless around any woman while they are pregnant for the fact really what can they do?

    Men are of a different design than we women, they are more afraid than women because of the helplessness men feel. Working allows for them to focus and during normal pregnancies some women work until the last hour.
