Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon showed off their adorable six-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, to Barbara Walters on ABC news program “20/20″ Friday night.
During the interview, Mariah opened up about her difficult pregnancy for the first time and told Walters that she experienced all sorts of problems while carrying the babies. She even shared that she had a miscarriage prior to getting pregnant with the twins.
The “Hero” singer smiled through her nine months as an expectant mom, but admits that it was a near-miracle both babies were born healthy after she suffered high blood pressure, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes. Read more…
“I just want them to strive for something greater than entertainment. I’m one of those believers in teachers, professors, heart surgeons. That’s what I’m rooting for. If I could get a scientist, that’d be amazing.”
—Nick Cannon tells People that he hopes Morrocan and Monroe, his babies with wife Mariah Carey, will find their way to other careers outside the entertainment industry. Wow, Nick sounds so down-to-earth saying this. I wonder if Mariah agrees?
After the jump, Nick almost makes me swoon with some words about his wife. Keep reading »
The word on the street had been that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were looking to sell the first photo of their twins, Morrocan and Monroe, to a tabloid for $200K. Maybe they were mad at that lowball offer—I mean, Angelina and Brad got $14 million for theirs? Because over the weekend, Mariah posted a photo of Monroe on Twitter along with the caption, “#dembabiesruntings -This is baby Monroe saying ‘no pictures dahhhhling’ at 7+1/2 weeks..oh dear.” Man, that little palm is adorbs.

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. Keep reading »
God bless Mariah Carey. I knew she’d find a gaudy way to celebrate the birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe somehow! Here it is: hubby Nick Cannon gifted her with a $12,000 push present in the form of a 14-karat pink sapphire and diamond necklace reading “Moroccan” and “Monroe.” It’s like Carrie Bradshaw’s name necklace lost a fight with a Bedazzler gun. Congratulations, Cannon-Carey family, and much health, happiness and bling to you all. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Is there an unwritten rule that celebutards are required to name their babies something completely outrageous and idiotic? The kiddos will get enough flack for having a famous mommy and daddy, so topping it off with a stupid name is just cruel and unnecessary.
It was recently revealed that Mariah Carey and her toothpick-sized husby Nick Cannon named their newborn twins Monroe (semi-normal) and Moroccan (WTF!?), named after a room in their palatial residence. That’s just disgusting. But is it the worst Hollywood baby name? You be the judge. Click here to vote! Keep reading »
“My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
—Nick Cannon‘s tweet from just a few hours after wife Mariah Carey gave birth to twins on Saturday, which happened to be their third wedding anniversary. Good point—not even butterfly shaped diamonds top “dem babies.” [People] Keep reading »
Break out the cigars! Mariah Carey has finally given birth to her twins! Concluding what seems like the longest pregnancy in history, at least to me, Carey popped out first a baby girl and then a baby boy at around lunch today (EDT). Husband Nick Cannon was by her side during the delivery, which I hope was just like honey. Sorry, bad joke. According to reports, the new family of four listened to Carey’s “We Belong Together” after the children were born, which, personally, I think is amazing. Oh, and apparently they are renewing their wedding vows tomorrow. Seriously? Isn’t Mimi tired? Anyway, the twins’ names have not been released yet. Will keep you posted because I know you are dying to know. Congrats Mariah and Nick! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
