Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon welcomed the arrival of their newborn twins, a boy and a girl, on Saturday, April 30th, however the pair has yet to announce their names. However, Mommy Mariah revealed the twins’ first initial yesterday on Twitter.
“So we r bout 2 reveal the actual names and b4 we tell em 2 our friends etc.,” Mariah tweeted. “I had 2 C if any of the #lambily wanted 2 guess!!!”
The guessing game went on for awhile as Mariah’s fans, whom she calls lambs, responded with their guesses.
“The game continues!!!! This crew is a lil slow..lil slow…! Coming up next-the initials…I love the #lambily!!!!” she tweeted.
Eventually, Mariah gave her “lambs” a helpful hint: “Both begin w/M’s!!!! :)”
UPDATE: Mariah has officially announced the names of the twins: Monroe Cannon & Moroccan Scott Cannon.
Their son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, with the nickname “Roc”. 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.
