Mariah confirms marriage to actor

Thursday 8 May 2008

Singer Mariah Carey has confirmed in a US magazine interview that she has tied the knot with actor Nick Cannon. "We really do feel we are soul mates - I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me," the 38-year-old told People magazine.
Carey confirmed the pair married on 30 April in the Bahamas following a whirlwind two-month romance. The pop diva met Cannon, 27, while shooting the music video for her single Bye Bye. "It was a love-at-first-sight thing. Since we've been together, we've been inseparable," Cannon told the magazine.
According to People, Cannon had proposed to the singer on the rooftop of her New York apartment building just five days before their wedding. The singer dismissed reports their marriage was as last minute as reported: "One thing [few people] knew was we got tattoos a few weeks earlier. So anyone who saw my tattoo wasn't surprised," she said. Talk show host Oprah Winfrey also revealed on a recent programme that Carey had showed her a tattoo on her back that said "Mrs Cannon".
At the ceremony, the groom wore a white suit by designer Balenciaga, while Carey wore an off-white dress by Nile Cmylo and Christian Louboutin shoes. "I can wear high heels with Nick because he's tall. Flats are not in my repertoire," said Carey.
The pop star and Cannon were seen together at the premiere of her film Tennessee at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York last weekend, with the singer sporting a diamond ring. It is the second marriage for Carey, who married Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola in 1993, which ended in 1998.
