London: Mariah Carey discovered she was expecting only when she took a test to prove pregnancy rumours wrong.

The R&B superstar went public with the happy news in a series of TV chats and told Access Hollywood Live she only took a test because she and husband Nick Cannon were sick of reports she was with child earlier this year (10).

"They kept saying, ``Oh, she’s pregnant,`` and we were like, ``Ha ha, yeah, whatever,`` so we took the test and it was positive," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

The singer then swore her husband to secrecy: "Only one other person knew about this and we were like, ``Let’s not tell anybody else``."
