Music super couple Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names of their newborn twins after having given birth to them last weekend.
According to reports, both twins' names are inspired by a place and famous actress.
Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins who were born in Los Angeles on Saturday. Their son is 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, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It's also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan! Their daughter's name is Monroe Cannon. Mariah's rep says she does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one. Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life. (Mariah Carey)
Reports of their twins' birth hit the Internet last Saturday (April 30).
It's official -- Mimi is now a mama! Mariah Carey gave birth to twins - a boy and a girl - on Saturday. The 41-year-old singing superstar gave birth at 12:07 p.m. EDT at an undisclosed hospitalin Los Angeles, Mariah's rep, Cindi Berger, told the Associated Press. Nick and Mariah's baby girl was reportedly born first, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces, and was 18 inches long; while her brother was next, at 5 pounds 6 ounces, and was 19 inches.

Cannon also confirmed being a father via his Twitter page.
"Congratulations to Mariah & Nick on the birth of#dembabies!!" a rep wrote on the singer's Twitter page. "Born, April 30th at 12:07pm ET. Mommy, Daddy & #dembabies are all doing fine!" Cannon added his sentiments on his Twitter page: "My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!" (USA Today)
The actor/rapper had predicted Carey's delivery would take place sooner than later.
And it was just as Cannon, 30, predicted. "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," Cannon said Thursday when he guest-hosted The Talk. "We got the minister coming in, so this gown will not be a wedding gown, but a hospital gown." (PEOPLE)
