Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names of their baby twins on Carey’s official website on Wednesday – Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon.
Carey’s website explains how they came up with the names on her. Their son was named after the top tier of Carey’s New York City apartment, which is called the Moroccan Room because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. This is also where Cannon proposed to Carey (how cute!). Their son’s middle name, Scott, is Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.
Their daughter was named Monroe, after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Carey her whole life. Monroe does not have a middle name because Carey does not have a middle name.
Carey, 42, and Cannon, 30, welcomed their twins into the world on Saturday, April 30, which was also the couple’s third wedding anniversary!
Carey’s rep, Cindi Berger, tells CNN, “It has been a long, emotional journey for this family, and I couldn’t be happier for all of them.”
