Washington: New mother Mariah Carey wanted nothing less than a standing ovation, which she is used to for her stardom, when it came to welcoming her twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe 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,” People mag quoted husband Nick Cannon as telling Gayle King.
Although it was certainly Carey’s time to shine, Cannon admits he has no problem taking a backseat to his wife’s celebrity status.
And as for the babies’ unusual monikers, Cannon, 30, laughed and said, “Of course we got to keep our celebrity weirdness up!”
“My kids’ names are Roc and Roe,” he told E!. “Right there, it can’t get any better than that,” he added.
