Mariah Carey and Twins To Make TV Debut – The singer is ready to introduce Moroccan and Monroe this Friday during an interview with Barbara Walters on 20/20. The twins are nicknamed “Roc” and “Roe” and will appear alongside their mother and father Nick Cannon. The Carey twins are only one of the topics up for discussion during the ABC newsmagazine program.
The interview will discuss such topics with the couple as their difficulty conceiving, their marriage and the Grammy winnerâ€™s high-risk pregnancy when she was carrying her children.
The son and daughter are 6 months old and have never been seen by anyone in the public before Fridayâ€™s interview in their apartment.
A post on the singer’s website reads: “Mariah and Nick recently sat down with Barbara Walters in their New York apartment to discuss Mariah’s pregnancy, their marriage, their beautiful baby twins Monroe and Moroccan and much more.”
When she announced her pregnancy last fall, Mariah revealed that she had been pregnant shortly after their marriage but had suffered a miscarriage.
The children were born in May in Los Angeles,Â which was also the couple’s third wedding anniversary — they renewed their vows the next day in a hospital ceremony conducted by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Berger said that the daughter was born first, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces and was 18 inches long. The son weighed just over 5 pounds and was 19 inches. Their son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, because the top tier of Mariah’s apartment is called the Moroccan Room and this was where Nick proposed to her. Scott is Cannonâ€™s middle name and his grandmotherâ€™s maiden name.
Their daughterâ€™s name is Monroe Cannon. She was named after Marilyn Monroe, who the singer has said was an inspiration to her throughout her life. Carey also owns the iconâ€™s white piano and has put in her will that the piano will one day go to the Smithsonian. She has already stated that she doesnâ€™t plan on having any more children.
