Singer Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have welcomed their boy and girl twins on their fourth wedding anniversary today! Check out the details [...]
Yay! Mariah Carey gave birth to her twins just a few short hours ago. Guess what today is? Mariah and Nick’s anniversary! Only Mariah’s uterus would have it planned this way. Now Nick and Mariah get to celebrate their love all over the place on April 30! Aw, I’m really, really happy for Mariah and Nick and the babies. I love the way Mariah handled her pregnancy publicly, although I know not everybody enjoyed her TMI. I thought it was wonderful - she wanted us to celebrate. So, YAY!
April 30 is double the pleasure for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Not only did they welcome twins, but the couple celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, too!
Carey, 41, delivered the babies Saturday at 12:07 p.m. EDT at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles. Carey’s representative, Cindi Berger, confirmed the births to The Associated Press, saying the baby girl was born first, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces, and was 18 inches long; her brother was next, at 5 pounds 6 ounces, and was 19 inches.
And it was just as Cannon predicted. “I’m not trying to be a psychic, but we renew our vows every year so … It’s probably going to be in the hospital this year. I can feel it,” Cannon said Thursday when he guest-hosted The Talk. “We got the minister coming in, so this gown will not be a wedding gown, but a hospital gown.”
Berger says they were listening to Carey’s “We Belong Together” after the children were born.
Long before the births, the couple made no secret of their desire to have children. Last October when they first made Carey’s pregnancy public, Cannon said that “the greatest gift on earth is a child.”
Throughout Carey’s pregnancy, the parents-to-be were cautious about revealing too many personal details since the couple had a “long journey” to parenthood, Cannon said in December.
That the singer was expecting twins was chattered about for months before Cannon finally confirmed it in December.
As for the origin of their babies’ names, Cannon told PEOPLE in January that the couple had aimed for unique but not wacky. “They won’t be crazy names like Carburetor or something,” he promised. “But they’re definitely unique.”
Well, congratulations to them, and I can’t wait to hear the names. You know that Mariah’s idea of a “not wacky” name is totally different than our idea. Fingers crossed for some variation of Sparklepony, Blueberry, Princess Glitter, Nickalicious, Butterfly Sequin and/or various gemstones. Ruby, Sapphire (for a boy), Diamond, Aquamarine, Emerald, Garnet, whatever. Congrats, MIMI!!

Haha, it’s just funny at this point. Just when I think “Oh, now THAT is the end of the royal wedding coverage,” something else happens. These are the newly-released OFFICIAL wedding portraits. There are three (that I know of): one of just William and Kate, one of William, Kate and the children who served as bridesmaids and groomsmen/footmen (or whatever), and one with the whole “wedding party.” The whole wedding party one is the one that I find odd - Prince Harry is placed in close proximity to his brother, while Kate’s sister Pippa is pretty much pushed to the side.
And no, I’m not going to say absolutely anything about the children. Why would you think I would say anything? This? Or this? Yeah, I’ve already said enough. But check out the little blonde boy behind Kate in this portrait:
Little pimp! He’s all “I could have any one of these bitches.” A little Prince Harry in the making, right? Let me see if I can find out who he is…he’s Master Tom Pettifer, the son of Tiggy Legge-Bourke, who was William and Harry’s nanny/friend. Interesting side note about Tiggy: Prince Charles hired her during the divorce to Diana, and Diana was PISSED about the hire. Diana thought that Charles had no business hiring a nanny for the boys, considering William was a entering his teen years, and Harry… well, God knows. The boys loved her Tiggy, though, and that just upset Diana even more. Diana thought Charles and Tiggy were lovers too - and she said so, to Tiggy’s face. Sigh… there never will be another one like Diana. She really knew how to bring the dramz.
In other royal news (just let me knock this all out at once):
*Prince Harry’s Best Man toast was “brilliant” according to sources. Apparently, he kept it nice rather than “Hey, dude, remember that time we were boning those hookers…last year?”
*You can see some photos of William and Catherine (must remember to start using “Catherine” by the way) the day after their wedding (today) here. She’s wearing a cute blue dress, a black jacket and the same pre-wedding wedge heels that she was wearing the day before. William isn’t wearing a tie and he looks naked! To me at least.
*The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delaying their honeymoon! Boo! They are currently in the midst of a special “private weekend” in the UK (somewhere), and then William is going back to work (as a search and rescue pilot) this coming week. Here’s the statement from the palace spokesperson: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen not to depart for a honeymoon immediately. Instead, after spending the weekend privately in the United Kingdom, The Duke will return to work as a Search and Rescue pilot next week. The locations of both their private weekend before The Duke returns to work and their future honeymoon, which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance. The Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon.” It’s weird, right? I mean, I’ll understand if it’s the kind of thing where William was needed and it was all unexpected, but it also sounds very unromantic. Isn’t the honeymoon the best part of all of this wedding stuff? The honeymoon and the cake. And the biscuits, of course. But I guess William has been getting the same biscuits for nine years, and the biscuit in a different location really isn’t all that exciting?
