Nick Cannon rushed his wife to the hospital in their Rolls-Royce Phantom after Mariah experienced labour pains. Having gone through false labour before, Mariah had assumed it was another false alarm.
However, this time was the real thing and the first twin, a baby girl arrived at 12.07pm on Saturday weighing 5lbs 3oz followed by her baby brother weighing 5lbs 6oz and was 19ins.
The twins have not yet been named, but dad Nick is over the moon. In fact, the dad to be was so nervous getting Mariah to the hospital, he actually went to the wrong department and had to be guided to the maternity ward.
The arrival of the two babies couldn’t have been more serendipitous as they share their birthdate with their parent’s anniversary. Four years ago, Nick and Mariah were married after a whirlwind romance. Since the beginning, they have been subject to baby rumours. What no-one knew at the time of their marriage was that they had been expecting a baby but sadly misarranged. They managed to keep the sad news of their loss quiet until earlier this year when they announced they were expecting multiples.
Nick commented on their fabulous news: “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life!” Cannon wrote. “I won’t ever be able to top this!”
What are your congratulations wishes for Mariah and Nick?
