#Dembabies have ARRIVED!!!
Yes, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's twins arrived just yesterday, April 30, which happens also to be the couple's 3rd-year wedding anniversary!
Mariah (42) gave birth to the babies at precisely 9:07am (EST) at a mystery L.A. hospital.
Mariah's rep Cindi Berger shared the deets with The Associated Press: the girl came first, weighing in at 5 pounds, 3 ounces, at 18 inches long; her brother weighed in at 5 pounds, 6 ounces, at 19 inches long. Cindi also said that Mariah's "doing great," and that they listened to Mariah's song "We Belong Together" after the twins were born!
"Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm," Cindi continued. "Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital [in their Rolls Royce Phantom]. She was very calm and the music was blasting.... When they walked into the hospital, [Nick] was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward.” Ha! Funny!
Nick (30) just knew the twins were going to arrive on the couple's wedding anniversary. As he predicted on the radio show The Talk, “I’m not trying to be a psychic, but we renew our vows every year so.... It’s probably going to be in the hospital this year. I can feel it.... We got the minister coming in, so [his] gown will not be a wedding gown, but a hospital gown.”
Nick and Mariah are apparently renewing their vows today (Sunday).
No names yet, Gorgeouses. Shucks! I can't wait!!
Congrats to the family!
