A pair of Hollywood Gossip favorites recently showed off their fine form - on the pitcher's mound! As baseball fans, we couldn't resist this photo finish ...

Newlywed Mariah Carey threw out the first pitch at a Japanese baseball game this week. No word on whether her throw made it to home plate, but at least she has a shiny jacket with her initials embroidered. That counts for something.

This week on The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas took to the hill against some of her aspiring boyfriends at Dodger Stadium. Most of the shlubs proved inept at home run derby, but DeAnna looked stellar. And we don't mean her mechanics.

Mariah Carey crooned about how a certain someone would "Always Be My Baby" during the 1990s.

Now, it sounds like the diva and new husband Nick Cannon will actually welcome babies into their universe.

The source of this information - but not that awful segue - is Nick's half-brother, Reuben Cannon, who told Us Weekly that Cannon "definitely wants kids."

"I am not sure exactly if now is the time," Reuben said. "Both of their careers are crazy right now."

Reuben added that Nick and Mariah have a "real and honest love" for each other and "that is what is going to keep them together."

This bodes well for the couple. Real love is a better foundation on which to build, as opposed to the TomKat foundation of real and honest public relations assistance.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married out of nowhere, casting doubt as to whether this union is destined for success. That's the subject of today's Face-Off. Comments are highly encouraged as The Hollywood Gossip staff debates ...

WILL THE MARIAH CAREY-NICK CANNON MARRIAGE LAST?

YES by mischalova

The 2002 movie Drumline stars Nick Cannon as a talented street drummer that, according to IMDB, "initially flounders in his new world, before realizing that it takes more than talent to reach the top."

That quote might as well sum up Nick Cannon's love life, as well.

Having floundered in the dating world with Kim Kardashian and Selita Ebanks in the past, it's now apparent Cannon desires more, seeking a soulmate that brings more than just large breasts and lingerie to the table.

Enter Mariah Carey, the most successful solo artist of all-time.

Years ago, she sang about a "hero [coming] along, with the strength to carry on," but none of her rumored flings fit that bill. Eminem, Marcus Schenkenberg and Derek Jeter were nothing but time and panty fillers until Mariah's true hero came along.

Now that he's arrived, let's let Carey explain why this marriage is meant to last: "We really feel we are soulmates. I never felt love like this was in the cards for me."

The celebrity gossip world has been buzzing with rumors that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon went from engaged to married in a shorter period of time than it took Britney Spears to from hot to vomit-inducing.

According to family member Linda Cannon, the couple is, in fact, hitched.

"Yes, we know," she told E! Online. "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."

We can only wonder if Cannon's ex-girlfriends, Selita Ebanks and Kim Kardashian, feel the same way.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married before we could even give them a nickname. Mick? Nariah? What do you think?

What entertainment news story could knock a semi nude Miley Cyrus photo and a possible Roger Clemens/Mindy McCready affair off the front page?

How about an engagement between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon!

Nick and Mariah

While merely a rumor at this point, the singer wore a giant, sparkling ring on her left hand during the afterparty for her new film, Tennessee, on Saturday night. Cannon remained close by her side.

The new couple held hands at the party, which followed the movie's premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Cannon's rep had no comment on the topic, but the man who once dated Kim Kardashian was asked what he liked about Carey and replied:

"Everything."

Awww, we're overcome with happiness, and nausea, for this couple already.
