Motherhood is a blessing: Mariah Carey

Los Angeles: Singer Mariah Carey, the mother of 20-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, is thoroughly enjoying motherhood.

"Every moment is incredible and a blessing. I was performing in Sydney and I brought them (twins) out on stage because I want them to have these experiences. Some might disagree with that, but I know Monroe especially was going to love it. She didn`t want to get off the stage," quoted Carey as saying.

She, who is married to Nick Cannon, admits that career was her first priority, but now she loves being a mom.

"Motherhood is an amazing thing. I never thought I would experience it because I always said I don`t think I would do it because my career was always my life, but when you find the right person..." she said

The 42-year-old finds juggling her parenting duties with her ‘American Idol’ judging role a challenge, but admits it is better than working in studios on new music.

"It`s super difficult. It`s really exhausting, but this isn`t the most exhausting part. The best part is when everything runs smoothly.

"You come to work, do your job and go home like more of a normal person than someone who is in a studio for 18 hours, which would be me," she said.
