LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Mariah Carey has given birth to twins. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon welcomed twin babies today – a boy and a girl – on the couple’s third wedding anniversary. Carey, 41, and Cannon, 30, confirmed the news via Twitter today.
“Born, April 30th at 12:07pm ET. Mommy, Daddy & #dembabies are all doing fine!” wrote a rep for the singer today on Twitter. “Congratulations to Mariah & Nick on the birth of #dembabies!!”
Cannon later twitted himself “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life!” Cannon added “I won’t ever be able to top this!”
The couple was calm during the delivery. But Cannon’s rep confirmed the reality TV host was a bit frantic first, going to the wrong room in the hospital prior to delivery.
Carey first fueled reports of twins when she told a news interviewer that she sang Christmas songs during her pregnancy. She added “I just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!”
