Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon spent Thanksgiving together with their two children despite their separation. According to Mail Online, the former couple kept the holiday as normal as possible, likely to ensure that their kids were able to be with both of their parents. While Carey and Cannon might not be getting back together, they both seem to be on the same page when it comes to raising their children, and being together as a family when they should be.
“Gotta keep that going. I want to make sure we have a wonderful holiday together. Somewhere cold and snowy, like Aspen [Colorado],” Nick recently said about spending Christmas with Mariah and the twins. “Everything I do is for [my kids]. I just want to be the best father I can possibly be.”
Carey and Cannon spent Thanksgiving at Cannon’s home. According to Rolling Out, the couple has not been spending time with Moroccan and Monroe as a couple, but were able to put their differences aside for the holiday. After their family dinner, however, Mariah left Nick’s place, and checked into a hotel. This strongly suggests that the two don’t have any plans of getting back together. It is clear that everything they are doing now is meant to keep their children happy, and a part of the loving environment that they deserve.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Nick and Mariah have not said too much about their split. They have confirmed that they are no longer together, but neither one has bad-mouthed the other. Cannon has been a bit more candid about his current marital status, but he says that he’s kept it classy.
“Being a public figure, of course you don’t ever want to deal with your personal life in the public, but I’m the type of dude I deal with everything head-on. I’m not a hider, I never hold punches, hold my tongue. I’m as candid as I can possibly be, but I try and be as respectful, as classy and the best human being I possibly can be.”
Carey and Cannon’s Thanksgiving was quiet, but many were thrilled to see the two together again with their 3-year-old twins. Going through a divorce is never easy, but when two people are able to see the big picture, and remember that the most important thing is their children, it’s quite refreshing.
Do you think Nick and Mariah are doing the right thing by spending the holidays together as a family even though their marriage is over?
