It's more than just rumors! Mariah Carey married Nick Cannon. Entertainment website E! Online reported that one of Cannon's relatives confirmed that the singer and the actor are husband and wife!

“He called us and told us all about it. We are happy for him. If that is what he wants, then we are happy for him,” Linda Cannon, a relative of the actor, told this website.

Although the exact place where the whirlwind wedding took place has not been confirmed, another source told a magazine that the 27-year-old actor and the 39-year-old pop diva got married on April 30th in an island. A source close to Carey told The New York Post that the wedding took place in a house the singer recently bought in the Bahamas. “There was no pre-nup, there wasn't time”, another source informed this newspaper.

Mrs. Cannon told the newspaper she wouldn't share any more information: “I won't give any more details, but we are very happy for him”

Rumors of the pair being engaged started flying last week when Carey arrived to the premiere of her new movie Tennessee at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Tommy Mottola's ex wife was wearing a huge diamond ring. According to E! Online, a representative of the jewelry store Jacob & Co. confirmed that Cannon had bought the 17-carat diamond ring for the singer and paid $2.5 million for it!
