Cannon slams 'disrespectful' pregnancy rumours

Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has urged the press to stop speculating about when the couple will welcome their first child - calling the relentless pregnancy rumours "disrespectful".

The pair wed in the Bahamas last year and have been dogged by baby rumours ever since.

Earlier this week, the 'Hero' hitmaker was forced to deny reports she is undergoing fertility treatment to help her become pregnant.

And now Cannon has hit back - insisting the media should give the couple some space.

He told the New York Daily News: "Everyone wants to know! I tell people to just relax. Give my wife the respect she needs, the respect you’d give any woman. You don’t just go around saying, ‘Yeah, she’s pregnant’. How disrespectful is that?”
