The ‘Always Be oy Baby’ singer announced last month that she’s expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon, but doesn’t plan to hire a nanny to take over her duties. “I’m going to be hands-on. I wouldn’t be like, ‘oh, I’m a having a child, yay! Let me get a nanny so I can give her the baby. Take the kid.’ That doesn’t work for me. I don’t believe in that.”

If that means putting her career on hold, the musician says she may be prepared to do just that. “You can get caught up in Hollywood-land and that’s maybe not the best thing for kids, because they didn’t ask for it. I feel like it’s important to be responsible and to think, well maybe if I do this it’s not the best thing for my child.”
