Mariah Carey‘s marriage to Nick Cannon is apparently the real deal!

E! TV landed what looks like an official confirmation late Thursday night from Linda Cannon, reportedly a member of Nick’s family, who says she received a phone call from the 27-year-old funnyman announcing the happy news.

"Yes, we know. He called and told us all about it," Linda tells E!. "We are happy for him. If that is what he wants then we are happy for him."

As for the specifics, including whether or not the wedding took place in the Bahamas, (as previously reported) Mrs. Cannon declined to elaborate. "I’m not going to give you any details, but we are happy for him," she said.

Earlier Thursday, anonymous sources told that 39-year-old Carey had indeed wed her much younger beau in a secret ceremony at an undisclosed island location.

This is the second time around for Mariah, who was previously married to music mogul Tommy Mottola. Nick was previously engaged to Victoria’s Secret model, Selita Ebanks.

A spokesperson for Selita tells OK!, "She has no comment other than she wishes them well."
