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?
