Ellen Degeneres decided she would try and settle the Mariah Carey pregnancy rumors once and for all during the singer’s appearance on her talk show this week.
After Carey nervously laughed and told Ellen “Don’t discuss that” when asked about the pregnancy talk, the host stood up and got a bottle of champagne and two flutes.
“You don’t’ have to answer it, let’s just toast with Champagne and decide…,” said Ellen, before her voice was drowned out by audience laugher and applause.
“It’s just fattening,” demurred Carey – who married Nick Cannon in May – adding, “This is peer pressure!”
“No, let’s toast to you not being pregnant, if you’re not pregnant,” Ellen persisted.
The two clinked glasses – but Carey only pretended to drink the wine.
“You’re pregnant!” DeGeneres declared.
“No, no, no,” Carey insisted. “We will let you know when we’re going to have a family.”
So why refuse the bubbly?
“It’s too early for me,” explained the Grammy-winner. “I only drink after 3 p.m.”
