Mariah Carey gave birth to first a girl weighing 5lbs 3oz and then a boy weighing 5lbs 6oz. The couple have not yet announced their newborn babies’ names.
Husband Nick Cannon apparently drove Mariah to the Los Angeles hospital in their Phantom Rolls-Royce – now that’s style! Mariah was reported to have thought it was another false alarm but they decided to head to the hospital just in case.
However, there was confusion when they got to the hospital – with Nick initially going to the wrong part and needing directions.
Last Wednesday Nick admitted to TV chat show host Ellen DeGeneres that hospitals were not his favourite place. “I’m not too good with hospitals – I get woozy with blood. If they assign me a nurse too I can be there.” He also revealed that the twins were due any moment and the couple were on pins and needles, waiting for signs of contractions.
Mariah gave birth to her daughter at midday and later that afternoon Nick tweeted, “’My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
According to the Daily Mail, the couple listened to Mariah’s We Belong Together after the birth. What’s the likelihood that the babies know all the words to mum Mariah’s songs by the time they reach their first birthday?
