It's a boy! And a girl! - for Mariah Carey and hubby Nick Cannon.

A friend of the couple is confirming to Life & Style the couple will have one child of each gender when their twins arrive this Spring.

This follows up on Cannon's own announcement that they were having twins.

Before that neither had confirmed they were expecting twins in April.

The mom-to-be says pregnancy has "been a long journey - but a happy one."
