Start looking for that  baby shower gift for Mariah!!!

During a new interview with In Touch Weekly, the singer, along with her hubby Nick Cannon- Carey, opens up about her career, love life, and her desire to be a mommy.

When asked if they want kids, Mariah says they “definitely” want a family while Nick adds:

“Yes, of course. It’s at the forefront of our minds. We’re very close. But we want to enjoy our first year together. We didn’t have a stable environment. The first year we were in LA in a hotel and then we were like, “Let’s get a house.”

Though the couple can’t decide if they’re gonna raise the kids in New York or LA, but they do know they’d like two kids.

Mariah adds:

Of course, we’d be happy with one. I want to be able to manage the right amount of attention. We are so busy – if you have six kids running around, no one gets what they need. Kids need a lot of attention.”

And if Mariah gets too old to have kids of her own, adoption isn’t out of the question.

Says Nick, “It’s never out of the question. I was raised by my grandmother, who was also a foster mom, so I grew up around a lot of kids.”

But what about the extra weight gained during pregnancy? According to Mimi, she won’t mind it.

Adds the diva:

“I’d be fine with it. I’m not one of those people who is usually a size 2 to start with and gets scared they will end up a size 3.

We would love to see a little Mimi running around sometime next year.
