Mariah releases names of twins
Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins.
The couple, who welcomed the babies on Saturday in Los Angeles, named their son Moroccan Scott and daughter Monroe.
The unusual monikers have sentimental value to the couple, who renewed their marriage vows on the same day the children were born.
The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor, and it is the room where Nick proposed to his wife.
Scott is 30-year-old Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.
Their daughter was named after Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.
Mariah, 42, has long cited the fifties actress as an inspiration and she even owns the late star’s white piano.
They decided not give their daughter a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one.
Earlier this week, Mariah took to Twitter to stir up a guessing game about the names.
The proud pop diva hinted that both names begin with the letter ‘M’. (Daily Mail)
