Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon are the proud parents of recently born twins, a baby boy and a girl. The birth of their children came on the same day (Saturday) as their fourth wedding anniversary.
Carey delivered her children at 12:07 PM EDT. The couple’s baby girl was born first at a healthy 5 pounds, 3 ounces and 18 inches long, while her brother came in at 5 pounds 6 ounces and 19 inches.
Mariah gave birth at an undisclosed Los Angeles hospital after the couple arrived believing her pregnancy was a false alarm.
Mariah’s rep Cindi Berger said of the labor:
“Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm. Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital and she very calm and the music was blasting. When they walked into the hospital, [Nick] was going the wrong way and they nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward, and I said to her, ‘that’s right out of I Love Lucy,’ and she laughed.'”
At this time the children’s names have not been released to the press.
