Carey Dismisses Plans To Build Nursery
MARIAH CAREY has dismissed reports she's building a nursery for a palatial new home she'll share with husband NICK CANNON.
Sources tell WENN Carey spent $200,000 (£136,990) on a pink crib, highchair and other furniture from a children's store in San Francisco for the Los Angeles mansion she intends to buy.
The singer, who turns 40 on Friday (27Mar09), has allegedly made an offer on the $125 million (£85.6 million) David Saperstein estate in Hollywood's swanky Holmby Hills, where Playboy boss Hugh Hefner and soccer ace David Beckham and wife Victoria own homes.
The French Chateau-style mansion boasts Italian marble walls, French limestone floors, gold-embossed leather wall coverings, a nine-car garage, ballroom and movie screening room.
An insider tells WENN, "She has asked (interior decorator) Kenneth Bordewick to advise on her new home and has requested an all-pink nursery. It's going to be over the top!"
But although the couple has expressed its desire to start a family, 28-year-old Cannon recently insisted babies aren't on their agenda just yet.
Asked about his plans for children, Cannon said, "Soon. Like a couple (of) years soon!"
And Carey's spokesperson has echoed the sentiment, telling the New York Daily News the nursery claims are "not true".
Carey wed Cannon in the Bahamas in April (08) after a six-week whirlwind romance.
