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.

Nick and Mariah

"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?

The rumors appear to be true: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are engaged.

Carey met the 27-year-old rapper/actor when he directed the video for her latest single, "Bye Bye," in late March.

An insider told Us Weekly that the romance was "hot and heavy," while Cannon has been quoted as saying he loves "everything" about Mariah.

How long do you give the engagement of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon?

Previously, Carey has been married to music mogul Tommy Mottola, while Cannon has been engaged to Selita Ebanks and seriously involved with Kim Kardashian.

** Update: as of 2 p.m. EST, reports are coming in that Carey and Cannon are already married. They supposedly tied the knot in a small island ceremony.

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!

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.

Remember when Mariah Carey was talented?

When she relied on her incredible vocal range to garner attention and didn't just use nudity to remain in the spotlight?

Carey and Cannon

Yeah. Neither do.

Here is Mariah Carey half-nude on the beach. We even see Mariah Carey nude on her new album cover. Can't she afford a shirt?

Mariah Carey says reports that she would prefer to sing a duet with a pig instead of Jennifer Lopez are "a complete untruth."

To the chagrin of those hoping for a Carey/J. Lo showdown - with Babe or Porky as the referee - the singing diva claims she never made this statement and has no beef with Mrs. Marc Anthony.

The Cannons

"This is just some [celebrity gossip] and it's pathetic that people actually entertain the thought that this could be real," Carey said. "This is another sad example of two strong women being pit against each other."

Cheers to big breasts and spoiled attitudes!

Uber diva Mariah Carey was recently asked if she'd ever do a duet with Jennifer Lopez. Her response:

I'd rather be on stage with a pig. A duet with Jennifer Lopez and me just ain't going to happen."

Jennifer Lopez: Most Beautiful

While insulting to J. Lo, Mariah's stance does give hopes to pigs everywhere. We're pretty sure Spencer Pratt just picked up a microphone.
