Mary has to up the ante quite a bit to really make an impact with this new era. So far, 25/8 seems to be her most intriguing. Still, you can't discount the Queen hip hop soul.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon on 20/20


Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon finally showed off their twin babies, Monroe and Maroccan to the world during their interview with Barbara Walters on 20/20.

“I don’t think I understood the enormity and the magnitude of what it really does to your body,” Carey said. “Carrying two babies. Unless somebody’s been through it, it’s difficult to understand what I went through, because my pregnancy was very unique in terms of what happened to me.”

Carey spoke of her difficulties during the pregnancy and issues that she didn't make public, such as her long periods of bed rest, false labors and her several emergency trips to the hospital.

“I had serious back problems,” she said. “I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to walk properly again. It was a huge strain.”

She carried the twins to 35 weeks gestation, and her song “Fantasy” was playing in the delivery room when Carey had her C-section.

“They came into the world to a live version,” she said, “and the only reason I wanted it to be the live version is because I wanted them to hear the applause upon entering the world.”

Cannon and Carey had this to add:

“My family gives me everything,” Cannon said. “Unconditional love means…the world to me. I mean, it’s completion.”
“It’s just love,” Carey added. “It’s a beautiful place to be.”

Check out a photo of the happy family below(as well as the website for photos of dem babies):
