Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s twins have finally arrived, and the couple couldn’t be happier. Carey took to Twitter to gush over her new bundles of a joy, a boy and a girl. The new mommy wrote, “I wish I could personally thank all those around the world who continue 2 send congrats+prayers for #dembabies! They’re doing great. And they are the most incredible gifts we could ever have imagined!”

Nick added, “I’m in the happiest place I’ve ever been in my life. I never had more amazing things happening. I am humbled by God’s Favor!”

The twins were born Saturday morning, and Carey initially only tweeted a hint about the “M” lettered baby names. Today, however, the happy couple officially revealed the full names.

 

Their son has been named Moroccan Scott Cannon. Scott is Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name. The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room and is also the place where Nick popped the question.

 

Their daughter has been named Monroe Cannon. Her name was inspired by Mariah’s longtime muse, Marilyn Monroe. Mariah's rep says she does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one.

 

“It has been a long, emotional journey for this family, and I couldn’t be happier for all of them,” Mariah’s rep, Cindi Berger, tells CNN.
