Mariah's music was the soundtrack for twins' birth
Even in the delivery room, Mariah Carey turned up the music.
Hubby Nick Cannon says that besides videotaping the April 30 delivery of twins Monroe and Moroccan , they also played some special music to help welcome their little boy and girl into the world.
"Now my wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey—her Madison Square performance of 'Fantasy'—so they came out to a round of applause," Cannon says on Friday's edition of the OWN network's "Gayle King Show."
As for the twins' unique names, Cannon admits that they are a bit over-the-top. "Of course we got to keep our celebrity weirdness up!" he tells King.
And speaking of names, Cannon insists he doesn't mind being referred to as "Mr. Mariah Carey."
"At times it used to frustrate me," he says. "When I step back and look at my life as a whole, I could be called a lot of worse things than Mr. Mariah Carey."

That song was nice. Hope to see more of these guys smedoay!And that girl was cute
After reading many of these posts it's no wonder America has fallen in the eyes of the world...and why Republicans have as much support as they do. Anyway, in an attempt to prop this forum up, I hope Mariah and Nick put their twins' welfare ahead of their own careers. Good luck to the family.
Isn't that child abuse?
Hmm... not sure I would've picked "Fantasy" out of all her songs for that occasion, but whatever. Good luck to the new family.
Her kids will never starve with those huge cans she's got.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have beautiful children and babies are a blessing from God.
