Mariah Carey's Motto: No Champagne Before 3 P.M.
But DeGeneres seemed determined to put her to the test.
"Let's just toast with Champagne," the sly talk show host suggested, reaching for a bottle and some flutes.
"It's just fattening," demurred Carey – who married Nick Cannon in May – adding, "This is peer pressure!"
When DeGeneres persisted, the two clinked glasses – but Carey only pretended to drink the wine.
"You're pregnant!" DeGeneres declared.
"No, no, no," Carey insisted. "We will let you know when we're going to have a family."
So why refuse the bubbly?
"It's too early for me," explained the Grammy-winner. "I only drink after 3 p.m."
