SHANIA'S WAITING FOR THE STORK
"NOW I'LL HAVE everything I've always wanted!"
That's how a giddy-with-happiness Shania Twain broke the news to record company execs in Nashville that she's 4 1/2 months pregnant with her first child by hubby Mutt Lange.
"Shania just couldn't keep the news to herself any longer, especially since she's starting to show," a Nashville insider told The ENQUIRER.
"Shania and Mutt are living near Geneva, Switzerland, where she's recording an album."
The 35-year-old songbird shared the stork news with family members weeks ago, but swore them all to secrecy.
"Eilleen -- we still call her by her real name -- called all her family back in Canada on Christmas Eve to say she was pregnant," a family insider confided.
"Shania told me, 'I've always wanted to have a baby, but in my head, I always was thinking later rather than sooner. I guess later's finally arrived!'
"She's ecstatic and a little scared at the same time.
"But if Shania tackles motherhood the way she has her career, she's going to be the best mom ever!"
