*The talk surrounding Mariah Carey has now shifted from “is she pregnant” to “what sex is the baby?”

The singer, who has yet to officially announce her pregnancy, is said to be holding off confirmation until she is certain that the baby is healthy. But someone in her inner circle may have spilled the beans.

“She’s having a boy, but the reason that Mariah didn’t want to say anything is because she is 40, and she’s superstitious,” an insider told Pop Eater. “But she’s going to appear on ‘Oprah’ and ‘The View,’ so she’s planning on making the announcement soon.”
