Remember when Mariah Carey painted her pregnant belly with butterflies and tweeted about how happy she was carrying her little twins? It was so cute. But now she’s sort of telling a different side of her pregnancy story, and to be honest, it’s not cute at all. It’s kind of sad. The Grammy winner told Gayle King that she felt like her body looked “rancid” during her gestation and would hide her body from husband Nick Cannon. She went on to say something like it’s important to her to be able to feel her bones and she didn’t like that she couldn’t while she was pregnant.
Feeling her bones? Feeling rancid? Sort of depressing, right? Read more…
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.”

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 »
