Mariah Carey says she “doesn’t believe” in nannies and plans to take time off work to raise her baby.
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?
