Mariah Carey has discouraged guessing about the sex of her twins, but now she confirms to Life & Style that she is expecting a boy and a girl.

The twins are due in late April/early May, Nick Cannon recently said. See photos of Mariah's BIG baby bump here.

Life & Style's press release follows:

Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon are expecting a boy - and a girl! "It's all about pink and blue these days," a friend of the couple tells Life & Style. "It's truly going to be a dream come true for them. They get a son and daughter."

And Mariah couldn't be happier. "Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything gender-neutral because I didn't want to impose an identity on them too soon," Mariah tells Life & Style with a laugh. "There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumors about them being two boys or two girls - but nobody guessed this!"

Nick first revealed in December that the couple were having twins. "In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real," he said on his radio show. "I didn't even tell my wife I was gonna do this. I'm probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission. We're having twins!" They're set to welcome their bundles of joy in April. "It's been a long journey--but a happy one," says mom-to-be Mariah.
