Everyone’s favorite diva is on the cover of the August issue of Elle, looking utterly foxy in addition to finally opening up about her whirlwind courtship and marriage to Nick Cannon. Though the couple have recently been plagued by reports of the honeymoon being over, Mariah dispels all rumors, sharing a few choice facts about Mr. Mimi and how it all went down.
* Mariah didn’t say yes to Nick — the first time. Apparently Nick had to propose twice, then Mariah finally agreed to marry him. “He sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he re-proposed.” Mariah shut Nick down days earlier when he proposed on the roof of her apartment.
* There may be the pitter-patter of little footsteps. “I couldn’t imagine anybody that I’ve ever met being a better dad,” Mariah says of her hubby.
* Apparently, Nick’s a heavy sleeper. As Mimi conducted the interview, Cannon stayed behind closed doors of their suite, sleeping the entire time despite barking from behind the bedroom door.
