Nick Cannon wants to make sure that everyone is clear: Mariah Carey only has one bun in her rapidly growing oven. The comedian said that rumors that his wife of almost three years is having twins spread because of a misunderstanding.

"That rumor started because she said something about 'they,''' Cannon told Us Magazine. "Something like, 'I hope they don't hate Christmas,' but she was using the word 'they' as in, like, he and she."

Cannon did reveal that he got in trouble with Carey for whispering to the baby that there was no Santa. "I got in trouble for that," he said. "I'm a Santa-ologist. At three-years-old my Dad told me there was no Santa. And my wife is Mrs. Christmas, so I have to compromise on that."

Carey's Merry Christmas II You, her second holiday album and 13th studio release, debuted at Number One on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and the Billboard Holiday Albums chart upon its October 29 release. -—ISHITA SINGH
