Cover Girls

People magazine has released the first photo from Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's surprise, secret Caribbean wedding on the cover of their latest issue. People announced last night that they would be debuting "exclusive wedding photos from Mariah's wedding" at 10AM ET today and, thus far, all they've released is the cover of their new issue:

Yep, they did it! If there was any doubt Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's wedding was the real deal, they answer the question once and for all in this week's issue of PEOPLE, speaking for the first time about their surprise nuptials – and showing off exclusive photos from their April 30 ceremony. "We really do feel we are soulmates," Carey tells PEOPLE, following their sunset ceremony at the pop star's Bahamian estate. "I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me." Cannon adds: "She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside."

UGH ... what a tease! I deffo want to see and read more from these two. I can't wait to read all about how they came up with the whacky idea to GET MARRIED after only dating for 6 weeks. [Source]

Not to be outdone by People magazine, Star just released the cover of their latest issue (they, too, appear to have Mariah wedding photos as well) but the coverstory is all about Angelina Jolie and the TWIN GIRLS that she is carrying in her sacred womb ... in addition to the alleged complications that she has been suffering thru this pregnancy:

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are thrilled to be adding two more daughters to their rainbow brood. But serious medical problems — and a frightening collapse — are casting a dark cloud over their baby joy. Angelina and Brad will be adding two more girls to their growing family when Angie gives birth in July, Star has learned exclusively. And they are ecstatic at the news that they are having twin daughters. "Brad can't wait — he absolutely adores little girls," says a family insider. "And Angelina just loves seeing him and the other kids so excited and happy." But behind all the joy, Angelina's difficult pregnancy has the superstar couple on edge, as they prepare for a worst-case-scenario birth early this summer. In fact, just before leaving for France, Angelina suffered a terrifying collapse that left her tearful, weak and panic stricken, fearing her fall may have harmed her two unborn babies, an insider tells Star. "Angie got out of bed and was halfway across the room when she passed out and fell," says the insider. "Brad heard her hit the floor — hard — and he rushed to her side. She came around pretty quickly, and the medical team that has been traveling with her, a doctor and a nurse, got her back into bed and started checking her vitals."

I'm not sure how Star knows that Ange is carrying twin girls but I must say, I'm a bit disappointed. 2 girls would TOTALLY ruin the symmetry of the family ... they'd have to rush out and adopt a boy almost as soon as the twin girls come along. What a pain. I sincerely hope that the mag is exaggerating Angelina's reported "health problems" but I imagine that carrying twins can be a harrowing experience. I truly hope that she and the unborn fruit of her loins are doing well. [Source]

Incidentally, I saw the Star cover before I saw the People cover and I thought the picture of Mimi in her wedding dress on the Star cover was a Photoshop manipulated photo ... but it does look like it *may* be legit when compared to the People cover. I wouldn't be surprised if Mariah sold at least one wedding photo to all the major magazines, saving the video for Oprah Winfrey. Genius.
