Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Welcome Twins on Wedding Anniversary
The diva and her husband become first-time parents on Saturday.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their third anniversary with another milestone -- becoming parents to a baby girl and boy.
The singing superstar gave birth Saturday at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles, according to Carey's representative, Cindi Berger. Berger told the Assocated Press that 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.
The couple has not named the children yet. Cannon drove Carey to the hospital in their Rolls-Royce Phantom. Berger said the 41-year-old Carey, who had gone through false labor, was calm, thinking that it was another false alarm.
Meanwhile, the 30-year-old Cannon was so nervous he went to the wrong department at the hospital, and was guided to the maternity ward by a nurse.
"It was like right out of an I Love Lucy skit," said Berger.
Berger says they were listening to Carey's "We Belong Together" after the children were born.
The couple are expected to renew their wedding vows on Sunday. The pair were married in 2008 after a whirlwind romance. They were the subject of endless baby rumors and were actually expecting shortly after their marriage but Carey had a miscarriage. They did not reveal the miscarriage until she announced her pregnancy last fall.
The couple plans to live a bi-coastal life, and have nurseries in both New York and Los Angeles.
As far as more children, Carey recently declared she's done.
