Congratulations to Mariah Carey, 41 and Nick Cannon, 30, who's twins were born last Saturday, April 30th. Her daughter, Monroe Cannon, is named after Mariah's idol
Marilyn Monroe. She did not give her daughter a middle name because she does not have one herself. Her son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, after the Moroccan Room on the top tier of Mariah's apartment in New York where her husband, Nick, proposed to her. Scott is the also the middle name of Nick's father and the maiden name of Nick's grandmother.
Monroe weighed 5 pounds 3 ounces and Moroccan weighed 5 pounds and six ounces.
A lot of thought went into the names of these twins who were not named immediately after their birth Saturday and who's names were just announced this Wednesday.
