Mariah Carey almost had two little bundles of joy as her birthday presents. Last night, the singer announced over Twitter that contractions sent her and hubby Nick Cannon rushing to the hospital thinking the babies were making their debut earlier than expected.

"So #dembabies really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary. I started having contractions last night..went 2 teh hospital," the mom-to-be tweeted.

Minutes later she followed up with two more updates: Finally they said I could go home after they got it under control but..They almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary in deed!!! We have a few more weeks 2 go but- wow!!!: ) #soreadyallready

If this is only after a near delivery, we can only imagine the exclamations to follow the tweets once their little boy and girl have finally arrived.
