Carey’s outing comes after she welcomed her second child with husband Marcus three months ago.

Their first child, daughter Evelyn Grace, was then born three years later in September.

The couple are famously tight-lipped about their private life and never confirmed their second pregnancy publicly – but Carey was seen stepping out with a prominent baby bump on numerous occasions earlier this year.
Reports they were expecting first emerged in July when super-slim Carey was suddenly spotted with a rounded stomach at hot spot Sexy Fish.
US Weekly then announced the pair had welcomed their new arrival in September, with a source claiming: ‘They have been loving being parents and their friends and family are thrilled.’

When asked by People magazine about being a mother of two at the premiere of her film Mudbound last month, she simply replied: ‘It’s good, thank you!’
On April 21, the pair celebrated their five year wedding anniversary, having wed in 2012 a few days after the movie Inside Llewyn Davis wrapped production – on which they were both working.
Carey has previously spoken about her daughter with New York Daily News, in which she said that the life lesson she’d teach Evelyn Grace would be: ‘No make-up, no piercings, no tattoos.’
Happy family: Carey and Marcus married in April 2012 and their first daughter Evelyn Grace was born three years later. They remained tight-lipped about their second pregnancy, but confirmed the tot’s arrival in August this year
