Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon revealed that their twins were born over the weekend, but they were only giving their fans a sneak peek about the names of their new son & daughter by sending out a tweet on Twitter that stated the twins names both begin with an M.
On May 4, 2011 the couple decided to release the names of their newborn twins. The twins were named after a decor and a famous deceased actress. Mariah and Nick’s baby boy is named Moroccan Scott Cannon and the baby girl is named Monroe Cannon.
Moroccan Scott Cannon received his middle name from Nick Cannon who’s middle name is Scott in addition Scott is Nick’s grandmother’s maiden name. Moroccan came from the top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment which is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also the place where Nick proposed to Mariah, overlooking Manhattan!
Monroe Cannon, Mariah’s rep says, 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. In fact, Mariah purchased the Hollywood icon’s white piano from Christie’s auction house and it is in Mariah’s will that the piano will one day go to the Smithsonian.
The couple renewed their vows in the hospital with Reverend Al Sharpton as well as prayed with their children. This loving couple seems to be very down to Earth and I bet they are celebrating much happiness with their new family!
