New parents Mariah and Nick renew their vows

Nick Cannon will have to get seriously creative for next year’s wedding anniversary. This time around, his wife Mariah Carey gave birth to twins on the same day as the couple's third anniversary.

“My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!” Cannon tweeted on April 30. Carey, 42, delivered a girl and a boy around 9 a.m. PST that day.

“I'm in the happiest place I've ever been in my life,” Cannon, 30, wrote the following day.  “I never had more amazing things happening. I am humbled by God's Favor!”

To celebrate both their anniversary and their new arrivals, Cannon and Carey had the Rev. Al Sharpton swing by the hospital for a prayer and wedding vow renewal ceremony.

“Mariah looks GREAT, and the babies are beautiful,” Sharpton tweeted. “I am so moved by the sincere spiritual commitment of Mariah and Nick. They have not let success separate them from GOD. I am so proud.”

    Igor, you are a racist hick. Your comments are ignorant and I know I should brush it off but I have to say something. White people are the same people who would have church then hold a KKK meeting in the basement. They are also the same people who would preach on abstaining until marriage while raping little boys and girls after bible study. People in glass houses hsouldn't throw stones

    I think it's sweet. In the world they live in they ned constant reminders of why they are committed to each other. Can you imagine how many half-naked women Nick see's when djing? Can you imagine how many hoochie mommas would be more than happy to get a itty bitty piece of "Mr Carey"? He could EASILY pull a Tiger and have a roll call of Russian women in his cell phone. The same applies to Mariah. She could get another apartment and settle a boy toy there in a heartbeat. I think its sweet that they take the time to remind themselves of why they love the other person every year. Plus, it stimulates the economy! let them spend that money if they want too

      @ roniee.

      Apparently you dont understand the evolutionary chain and the creation chain. They are distinct and separate. God didnt favor or non-favor these two idiots having or not having kids/rats. cant spell either.

    No matter what...........these innocent little babies should be called nothing but a blessing from God ignorance really is bliss! But the Al Sharpton thing.........ya lost me at Al Sharpton.......but they have religious freedom just as I do. Praise the Lord!

    • same here

      I also am glad they are new parents, any birth is a happy birth, but thats where I stop at the seriousness of it all. If they REALLY wanted to renew the vows, they should ahve chosen a more suitable minister, but as you state, freedom of religion. I would rather NOT even get married or receive ANY blessings if it came from this big time POS idiot. He ALONE sis extremely predjudiced and egotistical to the ends of the earth. He is a loser.

      Nick Cannon is all flash and no substance. He will be a terrible father and numbnuts Mariah will be an awful mother. These kids/rats should be taken from them immediately.
