Watch: Nick Cannon Gives Ridiculous Details About The Birth Of His Twins


New daddy Nick Cannon was a guest on the OWN network talk show The Gayle King Show this week and talked at some length about the birth of his twin children Monroe and Moroccan Scott and the “production” that was put into place as the babies emerged from Mariah Carey’s womb. According to Nick, Mimi insisted that a live version of her music was playing when the babies were born “they came out to a round of applause”. Uh huh. He also refers to the interesting names of his children as a product of Mimi and Nick’s “celebrity weirdness”. Click below to watch clips of Nick talking to Gayle about other kooky deets surrounding the birth of his children.

Nick Cannon is a very proud new dad. The radio/TV host stopped by The Gayle King Show to gush about his new family, being Mariah Carey‘s husband, the unique names the couple chose for their twins and his first ever stand-up comedy special on Showtime called, “Nick Cannon: Mr. Showbiz.” Nick made it clear that being part of Mariah’s birthing experience was a “production.” “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 Garden performance of ‘Fantasy’— so they came out to a round of applause,” he revealed of the birth. He also opened up about the unique names the couple chose for their newborn babies — Moroccan Scott and Monroe Cannon. “Of course we got to keep our celebrity weirdness up,” he quipped of the unusual names. Nick wears a bunch of hats — actor, comedian, rapper and radio/TV personality — but he is also known as “Mr. Mariah Carey.” “At times it used to frustrate me,” he said of the moniker. “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.” Gayle’s full interview with Nick airs tomorrow on The Gayle King Show at 10am (ET) on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

LMAOOOOOOOOOOO! The bit about Mariah’s music playing as the babies were born is the MOST ridiculous and MOST Mariah Carey thing I have ever heard. The fact that this info comes from Nick himself is just amazing.

In other Nick and Mariah news, you’ll never guess what Nick gave to Mimi for her first Mother’s Day, which just so happened to be about a week after the couple’s twin children were born … he got her some new jewelry, of course!

New mom Mariah Carey didn’t have to wait long to celebrate her first Mother’s Day. Just days after welcoming twins Monroe and Moroccan on April 30, the singer toasted her new life as a mom with a very special present from Nick Cannon: a 4-carat diamond and sapphire necklace from Jason of Beverly Hills. “Nick was really excited about the babies’ names and wanted to do a piece with them for Mariah’s first Mother’s Day,” jeweler Jason Arasheben explains. “Pink sapphires are bright and bold and diamonds are always so classic.” The sparkling piece, which also incorporates 14-karat white and rose gold, is valued at $12,000. Cannon, a longtime customer of Jason, was excited about his big surprise. “Nick came in and met with Jason on the Friday after his twins were born,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was bleary eyed, looking so tired but so happy — all smiles, saying he wanted to design something special for Mariah’s first Mother’s day. He couldn’t want to surprise her on Sunday.”

JUST … perfect. As gaudy as all of this sounds, I love it all. Mariah Carey as a mom? You KNOW she’s gonna do EVERYTHING over-the-top. Now … I want to see the babies. I’m sure we’ll be seeing the first photos of the twins very soon … mebbe as early as next week? As for the babies’ birth, what do y’all think? Does this sound EXACTLY the way you thought MC’s first birth would turn out?

    I’m sorry but everytime I see Nick Cannon he looks like a 18 year old playing dress up. I can’t take him seriously. He is always on joke time. He does seem cool. Congrats to him and Mariah. I do look forward to getting a peek at the babies.

    These children are going to grow up so warped. Liza Minneli will be nothing compared to these two!

    • Jill

      I agree completely. Its funny right now, but wait until these kids grow up. They could be just awful. lol

  • Panti Christ

    The necklace is so hideous that it’s awesome.

    • Meghan

      @Panti Christ-LOL! It’s terrible. Can you imagine what the jewelers were thinking making this??

    • Panti Christ

      It looks….rushed. Bad form to the lettering. With their income, though, it’s like us shopping at Claire’s so I am sure they don’t care! lol

  • Mara

    The fact that this uneducated fool gets any airtime to even spew a sentence is annoying.

  • Lisa

    I agree with Dach. He’s like a kid. They are such an odd pairing IMO. If he were my hubby I’d say shut the hell up already! LOL!!!!!

  • Debho

    Those poor babies having to listen to that screeching as they’re being born. I’m sure they were wishing they could go back straight away. lol Poor babies…already saddled with weird names and you just know their life is going to be anything but ordinary, and probably not in a good way. Oh well, at least they’ll have each other.

    • lori

      michael jacksons kids have a better chance than these two…

    • Mary

      Are you freaking kidding me? The only way these kids have a better chance is that his father(RIP) is not around.

  • Excess

    His description is priceless and very Mariahesque, with twins I thought she’d go the traditional route but am Totally not surprised she went full-on Mariah Carey. Congrats to both.

    Uh, Nick the name Mariah has been around for ages, it’s a form of the name Maria but I do agree your wife has made it more popular.

  • Gracie

    he is so whipped its hilarious

  • Joan

    And he released this info voluntarily? That’s how deluded they are.

  • Linh

    Yes he seems whipped but I dont think it as a negative. He is a man who loves his wife. I respect that. Mariah is lucky indeed. And as over the top as Mariah is, she can afford to be. These kids will be spoiled for sure but they will also be loved. It seemed like nick and mariah really wanted to become parents and every kid should be so lucky to be born to parents who are ready to embrace parenthood. Lucky kids :). I wish the whole family the best.
