Mariah Carey, who has recently announced her pregnancy with husband Nick Cannon, insists that she’ll raise her child without a nanny.

“I’m going to be hands-on. I wouldn’t be like, ‘Oh, I’m a having a child, yay! Let me get a nanny so I can give her the baby. Take the kid.’ That doesn’t work for me. I don’t believe in that,” Carey told OK! magazine.

“You can get caught up in Hollywood-land and that’s maybe not the best thing for kids, because they didn’t ask for it. I don’t know that I always felt safe as a child and that’s nobody’s fault.

“I feel like it’s important to be responsible and to think, ‘Well, maybe if I do this it’s not the best thing for my child.’ You have to take a backseat a little bit, and as someone in the public eye you’re not used to doing that,” Carey continued.

What do you think? Will Carey raising her baby without a nanny mean we won’t hear from her for awhile, in the music world?

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
