For a mother-to-be, there can be various reasons not to disclose her pregnancy, especially in front of millions of strangers on a TV Show.
Maria Carey opens up on the moment when her pregnancy was divulge too early on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ more than a decade ago. In an interview with Vulture, published on Monday, the singer admitted that she felt “Extremely Uncomfortable” when the host of then TV show , Ellen DeGeneres leaked her pregnancy during an appearance on long running talk show.
During the interview of 2008, DeGeneres questioned Carey to authenticate or refuse the aired rumours that she and her then husband Nick Cannon were expecting the child. At that time Carey laughed off that question and tried to change the topic, but DeGeneres did not get down and proffered her a glass of champagne. In the video clip of that interview that has been reappear recently on Twitter and also accessible on the “Ellen” archive page, DeGeneres addresses rumours of that time that the singer was pregnant, urging her to have a drink of champagne to prove everyone wrong.
Carey says, ” I can’t believe you did this to me Ellen” and continued, “This is peer pressure. You see what Ellen is doing? this is peer pressure.”
DeGeneres answered, “Let’s toast to you not being pregnant.”
“Oh my goodness! I can’t believe her”, Carey says. ” Why would we toast to that?”
In the end, Carey announced that it is too soon to drink and imitate having a small sip of that drink. Ellen exclaims, “You are pregnant!” but Carey refused it.
Carey Opens Up-
Now after 12 years, Carey on the account of the promotion of her album “Rarities” and upcoming memoir, “The meaning of Mariah Carey” – told new York magazine about that moment.
“I was extremely uncomfortable with that moment is all I can say. And I really have had a hard time grappling with aftermath.”
Carey who has came more than 5 times on the show since 2008, spoke out with Vulture, “I was not ready to tell anyone because I had had a miscarriage”. She continued, “I don’t want to throw any proverbial bus, but I didn’t enjoy the moment”.

Carey’s Opinion At The End-
Carey continues that she hopes the situation simply won’t come up again, and if does, then the host must think about it first. She explains, “there’s an empathy that can be applied to those moments that I would have like to have been implemented. But what am I supposed to do? It’s like, (sings) -What are you doing to do?……..”
