As you know if you’ve listened to pop music for the past 20 or so years, Mariah Carey does not do anything small. In fact, even though the twins she recently birthed were relatively little in size, she made sure to make up for this by honoring them with a BIG entrance into the world.
“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 Garden performance of ‘Fantasy’–so they came out to a round of applause,” doting husband Nick Cannon told Gayle King of his wife’s April 30 c-section delivery.
And while it would seem that Cannon is quite used to letting Mariah be the center of attention, it’s actually something he had to get used to it. “At times [being called Mr. Mariah Carey] used to frustrate me,” he shared. ”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.”
So true! Mariah may be a little overzealous in sharing everything about her pregnancy and babies with the media, but she’s got the voice of an angel so we’ll forgive her the occasional obnoxious celebrity moment.
Speaking of celebrity moments, Carey and Cannon lived up to all expectations about what they would name their twins. “Of course we got to keep our celebrity weirdness up!” Cannon laughed.
“My kids’ names are Roc and Roe,” he told E!. “Right there, it can’t get any better than that," the proud father said.
“There’s a lot of meaning. We put a lot of thought into those names. I think we did a good job," Cannon admitted on a more serious note. "They ain’t gonna be mad at us when they grow up."
