Tommy Mottola's wife is pregnant.

The 61-year-old record executive - who is the ex-husband of Mariah Carey and former boss of Sony Music - and his wife, Latin superstar Thalia, 39, have announced they are expecting their second child according to USA Today.

The couple married in 2000, and Thalia gave birth to their daughter, Sabrina Sakae in 2007. Tommy has two other children, Michael and Sarah, from his first marriage to Lisa Clark.

Earlier this week it was revealed that Simon Cowell is lining Tommy up as a judge on the US version of 'The X Factor'. The pair met at exclusive Hollywood restaurant Cecconi's on Tuesday (01.03.11) where they discussed the possibility of working together on the TV talent show.

A source said: "Simon and Tommy have known each other for years since their days at Sony and Simon has wanted to get Tommy on board one of his shows for a long time.

"They get on extremely well and this could be the moment where they finally get on screen together. Tommy's from The Bronx in New York, he's tough talking, doesn't pull any punches and will make great TV."
