Mariah Carey finally gave birth to her twins, a boy and a girl, on 30 April in a Los Angeles hospital. It was an extra-special day for the superstar and her husband Nick Cannon as it was also their third wedding anniversary.
The America’s Got Talent host tweeted his delight: “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
Mariah’s rep confirmed that the baby girl was born first, quickly followed by her little brother. Apparently they were listening to their mother’s classic hit We Belong Together as they came into the world. So far the names haven’t been announced but Nick recently promised that they wouldn’t be too wacky. “They won’t be crazy names like Carburetor or something,” he said. “But they’re definitely unique.”
The couple only confirmed they were expecting twins in December and the chart-topper celebrated by showing off her bump in a topless photo shoot for Life & Style magazine last month.
It’s thought Mariah will be involved in some way with The X Factor USA after Simon Cowell admitted he wanted her for the judging panel but her babies would be keeping her too busy. “She couldn’t start working straight away, and they’re long days,” he explained. “But we’re hopeful there will be a role for her – and I’m not sure what yet – on the live shows. She wants to be involved.”
