Carey said:

I was extremely uncomfortable with that moment is all I can say. And I really have had a hard time grappling with the aftermath. I wasn’t ready to tell anyone because I had had a miscarriage. I don’t want to throw anyone that’s already being thrown under any proverbial bus, but I didn’t enjoy that moment.

Carey explained that there is "an empathy that can be applied to those moments that I would have liked to have been implemented." 

She added:

But what am I supposed to do? It’s like, [sings] ‘What are you going to do?'

In 2011, Carey welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe.
