News about Mariah Carey being pregnant are still swirling, but hubby Nick Cannon has confirmed that he is ready to have a baby with wife.
Nick Cannon told PEOPLE she would be an incredible mother.
"She's very nurturing," Cannon, 29, told PEOPLE at the US Open's Arthur Ashe Kids Day event in New York Saturday. "She's nurturing with me and makes me breakfast at anytime and that's my favorite food. It would be like 3 o'clock in the morning and she will still make me waffles. She'll be the best mom."
Cannon said he wanted to raise his child the way he was raised and follow his parents footsteps.
"I want to raise a child like the way I was brought up," he says. "Be someone who is stern but still fun loving and knows how to have a good time."
When asked if he would prefer to have a girl or a boy, he said he "just wants something that is healthy." He added that he is a little nervous on how to approach certain situations associated with a boy and girl.
"It's great to have a girl until she turns into a teenager. Then you have to worry about every other boy in the neighborhood and that would freak me out," he says.
"With a boy, I'd be worrying about him breaking his arms and his legs. I was that type of kid. I was a daredevil so I'd be having to worry about that."
