The 42-year-old is currently touring Australia. On Thursday night, Carey brought special guest Mariah Cini onto the stage at Sydney`s Allphones Arena.

Cini`s father Chris met the singer on her 1998 Australian tour and subsequently named his daughter after her, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Mariah Carey is truly a beautiful, genuine person. She`s protective of her fans and she`s not above herself at all. I knew when we were having a baby girl that she would be my Mariah Grace," said Chris.

Carey also dedicated her song ‘Close My Eyes’ to her.
