*Mariah Carey, who is expecting twins – one girl and one boy – with Nick Cannon,  had a little pregnancy scare over the weekend and went to the hospital after experiencing early contractions.

In the early hours of Sunday (March 27), her birthday, the 42-year-old tweeted, “So #dembabies really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital.

“Finally they said I could come home after they got it under control but…they almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary indeed!!! We have a few more weeks 2 go but- wow!!!: ) #soreadyalready”

As previously reported, Cannon tweeted last week that he better “man up” before the delivery date.

“I am probably going to faint in the delivery room! I need to man up! Or maybe I should say WOMAN UP since they are the ones that have to be the strongest in the whole ordeal!” he wrote. “I am in awe of my wife!”
