Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon’s Twins Were Born Listening To “Fantasy”

On Friday, Nick Cannon sat down on the “The Gayle King Show” to talk about being a new papa to twins. “It was surreal for me,” he said of being in the delivery room. “Of course, it had to be a production and I was the production manager. I had a camera in one hand and was DJing with the other.” DJing, you ask? Apparently, Mariah wanted her babies to come into the world hearing a song sung by … herself. And not just any Mariah song, mind you—a live version full of audience applause. And thus, her babies emerged to the sound of her performing “Fantasy” at Madison Square Garden. For real.

Oh, and Nick of course talked about “dem babies“‘ names. “Of course we got to keep our celebrity weirdness up!” he joked about picking the monikers Monroe and Moroccan. “My kids’ names are Roc and Roe. Right there, it can’t get any better than that. There’s a lot of meaning. We put a lot of thought into those names. I think we did a good job … They ain’t gonna be mad at us when they grow up.”
