Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are officially the proud parents of twins! Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, welcomed their baby boy and girl to the world at 12:07pm ET today. According to US magazine, the baby girl was born first, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces, measuring 8 inches long; her brother followed, weighing 5 pounds 6 ounces, and was 19 inches.
First-time dad Nick was so nervous that he went to the wrong unit in the hospital, and had to be guided to the maternity ward by a nurse.
The ‘America’s Got Talent’ host says he and Mariah have already come up with names for the tots, but are keeping them a secret.
In true diva fashion, Mariah had musical accompaniment as she delivered her babies: “We Belong Together,” her #1 single from 2006!
Nick Cannon said recently: “I’m very ready for fatherhood, I gotta be.” He told website Hollyscoop: “I haven’t even told my mama yet.” The proud dad promised Mariah to cut back on his workload once the babies arrive!! Awww.
We can’t wait to hear what names the couple have decided on!!
Congratulations to the happy couple.
