It was the second night of her husband's 30th birthday celebrations.
But Mariah Carey was nowhere to be seen when Nick Cannon stepped out in LA this weekend – further fuelling reports she is expecting their first child.
The usually inseparable pair spent time apart when Nick jetted out to party with friends at Universal Studios Hollywood (pictured).
And his wife's absence did nothing to quell speculation that she is indeed pregnant – not that Nick was giving anything away.
"I'm not going to say nothing!" said the comedian as he arrived.
Of his superstar love, he said: "She's at home resting; we partied last night in New York.
"Honestly, if it wasn’t my 30th birthday I'd like to be at home chillin', watching a movie and eating cake and ice cream.
"But its 30 so you're supposed to do it a little big."
Being married to one of the world' best singers, Nick looks forward to Mariah's annual rendition of Happy Birthday.
"I get serenaded waking up in the morning, it’s a beautiful thing," he said.
Mariah, recently pictured in a wheel chair after falling on stage, has hinted she's expecting with Nick, who has also stoked baby reports with some of his comments.
In a recent statement to her fans, she wrote: "I appreciate everyone's well wishes but I am very superstitious.
"When the time is right, everyone will know – even Cindi Berger (Mariah's publicist)."
