…Sorry, I was just thinking about possible baby names for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. BECAUSE THEY’RE HAVING TWINS!!! After playing games with our hearts, Nick Cannon has finally confirmed that yes, dreams do come true, and he and Mariah are totes having twinsies. Now we must think happy thoughts because it NEEDS to be twin girls. Totes.

It’s official: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are getting ready for baby love times two!

On his 92.3 Now radio show Thursday, Cannon confirmed that he and Carey are expecting twins.

“In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front and I need to be able to share things with you and be real,” Cannon, 30, said.

“I didn’t even tell my wife I was gonna do this,” he admitted. “I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission…We are having twins!”

It gets even better, Cannon explained. During a recent White House Christmas special taping, an emotional Carey finally broke the news about the twins to President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Of course they broke the news to the president of the United States first. Of course. Because President Obama needed to be the first to know about Sparklepony Glitterdazzle Cannon and Butterfly Creamsicle Cannon. I CAN’T WAIT.

    Who cares? He’s incredibly lame and she’s off in the head.

  2. samihami says:

    Awww, good for them. I really hope they do have girls. It would be shame for a couple of boys to go around with names like Rainbow Smiles Sunshine Happy Bunny and Moondrop Applecheeks Fluffy Kitten.

  3. KelBear says:

    Great, 2 mini Cannons is just what we need…not!

  4. sisi says:

    okay I tried to control my laughter, but cracked up at Sparklepony Glitterdazzle, that name is a winner!

  5. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Of course they’re having twins! I have never once gotten excited about a celebrity pregnancy (except that I thought Katie Holmes was faking) but I am excited for them. God bless you, Nick & Mariah!

  6. RHONYC says:

    if nick would gain some ‘pregnancy pounds’ with mariah, he’d be a hot piece of a*s. :-)

  7. BrandyMc says:

    I can’t wait for the names! I hope it they are two girls as well.

  8. Praise St. Angie! says:

    don’t know what it is about this couple, but I smile when I see pics of them.

    I think it’s because of the way he seems to dote on her, and she seems to appreciate it. They seem to be genuinely happy, and I hope they have two healthy babies.

    and the names you came up with, Kaiser?…brilliant.

  9. ams511 says:

    mariah weirds me out with her obsession with butterflies & ponies & glitter & fairies, but i really am happy for them. i think she is going to end up being a good mom.

  10. womanfromthenorth says:

    I just hope they make it and are healthy.

    They seem very happy…

  11. JC126 says:

    Good for them. Although when I see them together, damned if they don’t look more like mother and son rather than husband and wife. And there’s only 10 years between them.

  12. mel says:

    yeah those names are hilarious, but wont be surprised if they come up with some ridiculous names.

  13. Wait. Didn’t they just deny this? How silly does it look when they (and Eva and Tony) lie and then change their story? I am getting really tired of celebs.

  14. Roma says:

    First Mariah started growing on me and now Nick… I actually like them together.

    Can’t believe I’d ever say that.

  15. jilly says:

    That would explain why she is so fat

  16. embertine says:

    I want a glitterdazzle cannon for Christmas.

  17. Kait says:

    How hilarious would it be if they named the girls (it’s got to be girls) something like Mary and Catherine or Susan and Josephine? I don’t expect Mariah Carey to do something as sensible as that but it would crack me up if after all that, they used traditional names.

  18. Natalie says:

    lmao! i love the names!!! laughed so hard!!

  19. Jaye E says:

    Personally, I like Tanqueray Sassafras and Rondelay Ticklepants.

  20. Stephie says:

    I can’t help but wonder… how will someone SO self-involved, step outside of her little world of “mememememe” and take care of, and truly love two beautiful little beings that will not kiss her ass to be loved and cherished as deserved?

    I love Mariah’s voice but she’s like a child in an adult modified body. Narcissistic to a fault. Its amazing to me she even is pregnant. I wish her the best but worry about those babies.

  21. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Awwwwwwwww I knew she was having twins, Mariah was to big for just one baby, even though I have seen huge pregnant women with just one baby but Mariah is very big. Congrats to the happy couple.

  22. flutters says:

    Oh you’re on a huge roll today Kaiser!

    As far as these 2, I just think sometimes you just want a funny, harmless, feel good story for the holidays. This is it. Best wishes to them all and may they enjoy happy and healthy times as a family.

  23. malachais says:

    wahoo! she will spoil these kids rotten, I definitely think kids will change Mariah a bit, make her more grounded.

  24. Sigh. says:

    Called it! I said he was still using AND instead of OR! They’re just not the most clever coupling, and sooo apparent, God bless ‘em…

    Twin girls:
    Cinnamon Glazed Souffle Cannon Carey
    Sunshine Strawberry Lip gloss Cannon Carey

    Twin boys*:
    Rocky Road Steedman Cannon Carey
    Hercules/Apollo Pegasus Poseidon Cannon Carey
    (*they will have manly names, but still sound like strippers)

    Boy and Girl**:
    Butterscotch Bear Cannon Carey
    Cocoa Candy Cane Carey Cannnon
    (** I call this grouping as the sexes)

  25. Happymom says:

    I hope they’re boys. As entertaining as seeing the names and outfits she would pull together for girls, I think she would be a seriously tough (narcissistic) mother-and she’d be less damaging to boys in the long run. She’s insane-I hope he gets eventual custody.

  26. mln76 says:

    @Sigh I think Apollo Pegasus Poseidon Cannon Carey is my favorite name ever.

  27. Bailey says:

    Oh Sigh., you should officially name the children, brilliant!

  28. bite me says:

    mimi will be a wonder mother

  29. OtherChris says:

    Good for them. She seems like she’s calmed down a bit and he seems like a pretty solid guy.

  30. happygirl says:

    Ah! I’m so happy for them, too. She’s wanted to be a mommy for a long time, and she and Nick seem to really love each other. Congrats!!

  31. Courtney says:

    get over it people twins are more common in older mothers anyway. if you ever Meet Mariah she’s actually well grounded I Should know I have. she looks beautiful and she and the babies are all healthy which is the only thing that truly matters and I called it from when I saw the pictures from the Disney Parade taping earlier in the month

  32. Westcoaster says:

    If Mariah and Nick end up having twin girls can you imagine in the future if the girls marry Celine Dion’s twin boys? Two divas like Celine and Mariah helping to plan a wedding would be epic!!

  33. bros says:

    this is a woman in her 40s pregnant people. see her very obvious pregnancy face and weight gain? there is no way in hell I believe kelly preston was pregnant.

  34. TaylorB says:

    Awwwww. Twins. How very Hollywood of them.

    I am guessing that she has a girl and a boy I think that Twinkletoes FluffyButt Perfect Angel Carey and her brother Stan will be very happy babies.

  35. Patrice says:

    This is aaaaazzziiing!!!! Oh my GOD. Can you imagine all the pink?! This is of course, assuming that it really is twin girls, but, I mean, I just CANNOT picture our sweet Mimi with a couple of boys : )(however, if it is, God bless)

    Call me crazy but didn’t Mr. Cannon come right out and deny this a couple of weeks ago and say with a straight face that it was only one??? Hmmm. Whatever, I’m so excited for them I can’t even care. Congrats to Mariah and Nick and (possibly) Sugar Plum Princess and Daisy Cotton Candy!

  36. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    YAYYYYY!!! I am so happy for them both.

    Kaiser, you are a trip! You should definately be allowed to name the kids!!

  37. Patrice says:

    Sigh: Hercules Apollo Pegasus Poseidon Cannon Carey for a boy?

    Hahahahahahahaha!! AWESOME : )

  38. Amanda says:

    That pic of Nick in the black sweats and Mariah in the blue sweatpants is my FAVORITE picture of them.

  39. marilyn mullen says:

    I love it….hope they have a girl and a boy. She is glowing and he looks sooo very happy. Life is too short already and I wish them all good health.

  40. Jeri says:

    Mariah’s gonna kick his ass (if it’s true she didn’t know he was announcing it).

    I think they’ll be great parents. It’ll be fun watching Mariah with the babies.

  41. benny says:

    How cute. Now she’ll have three juveniles to care for.

  42. 4Real says:

    Well of course when you do invitro you usually get mulitples. Next they’ll LIE and say the twins were “naturally conceived”. LOL! Oh Mimi!

  43. Courtney says:

    she didn’t do In-vitro and has adaminantly said so though she did have to take progesterone shots to help make sure she wouldn’t miscarry again which isn’t uncommon. and so what even if she had as long as her and the babies are healthy it doesn’t matter. women over 40 are more likely to have mulitples anyway. they will be great parents and it’s obviously true love if it weren’t he would have left her after the miscarriage the first time

  44. Camille says:

    I hope its twin boys. Have to agree with @Happymom. Also, boys can be VERY sweet, mine is adorable :D .

    I also don’t believe the whole ‘they didn’t get help getting pregnant’. They lie about everything. There is no shame in having done IVF or whatever.

    Last night on E! News they made it sound like these 2 were having triplets!

  45. TG says:

    Well Nick just got two golden tickets. He is set for life now. To be nice they will undoubtedly be gorgeous kids. And I laughed my head off at those names.

  46. jayem says:

    Ohmigod, you guys are KILLNG me with the names. People are gonna think I’m crazy, cause I keep laughing like a deranged person in my office!

  47. Matt says:

    @ happymom, I couldn’t disagree more with your mean post, I think Mariah will be a fantastic mother and wish the family all the best!

  48. Rosanna says:

    Funny, I’ve always assumed they were having twins! I’m sure they’ll be great parents… at least as good as most of you are.

  49. Psyren says:

    Really happy for them both!

    And I’d like to humbly cast my vote for Nick Cannon for Hot Guy Friday. I’ve always thought he was really handsome.

  50. Isa says:

    Stephie- I wondered the same thing. Especially because I keep remembering this:

    But I know that motherhood changes you in many different ways. I hope that she will be the best mother she can be to those babies.

  51. Kasey says:

    LOL! Y’all crack me up. LOVED all those name suggestions! My favorite was definitels samihami’s “Moondrop Applecheeks Fluffy Kitten”. I think the names are going to be a bit more toned down and meaningful though. I’ve only thought of girl names so far but I could totally see a Princess Lovely Cannon and a Precious Nicola Canon if not Mariposa Princess and Nicola Precious (1 N name for Nick and 1 M name for Mariah). I hope they keep it a secret. I wish them the best and look forward to the unveiling of the Cary-Cannon twins’ sexes and names!

  52. Hakura says:

    I don’t know, I just don’t get why they didn’t just ADMIT the rumor was true when that was suspected a while back.

    It always seems like whenever a celebrity takes the time to DENY a rumor, they come back to announce that *shock!* it really IS true. As though they didn’t completely lie a few weeks earlier. *shrugs*

  53. the_porscha says:

    Sparklepony Glitterdazzle and Butterfly Creamsicle should so obviously be the names. The background for this entry should have been a special edition – care bears falling from the sky, resting on rainbows and snacking on candy canes, y’know? Something befitting of this kind of announcement. I’m actually super happy for them. I’m sure the babies will be totally adorable.

  54. Louise says:

    I don’t know why but I think they will be good parents. They will spoil the kids but they will be loved. I don’t know why feel this way when everything about them screams the opposite.

  55. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Louise: It will be interesting to see, because you’re right – everything about Mariah, at least, screams ME ME ME LOOK AT ME. And that doesn’t go hand in hand with good mothering. Nor does the diva act. She’s going to be holding THEM up while they walk, instead of people holding her up, and I wonder what she will think of that?

  56. Sunny says:

    Carol (Middle-aged-diva): they deny it so they could have yet another reason to go to any magazine, radio or TV show to sale their story. Just yesterday Nick was saying they’re having more than one now he saying twins and the whole “In order for my wife and I to have our life” really this coming from the couple who had three weddings and sold the pictures of all three and had their second wedding sponsored so they can get the whole thing paid for by other people. Nick been dropping hint that Mariah was pregnant for months like when he said his girl is pregnant, and when the media jump thinking he meant Mariah he change his story and said it was his dog that was going to have a puppies instead of not saying anything to not draw attention to him and Mariah if they wanted to be so privet. These two well do anything for attention and when they have the twins the babies are going to be ever were and they are still narcissistic they want everything to be about them that will never change and now it’s them and their kids.

  57. Mouse says:

    No problem, she’s got the hips for it.

    #20 Jaye: Ha ha, awesome.

  58. I Choose Me says:

    I like these two crazy kids together so this gives me a case of the awwwws.

  59. jc126 says:

    First off, how is it anyone’s concern whether they used IVF or not? Do you ask coworkers or relatives or friends if they used IVF to conceive?
    Second, she’s a high-risk pregnancy. Maybe there was some health-related reason they wanted to wait as long as possible to announce they were having twins. I don’t fault them for that at all.

  60. Hakura says:

    No, it’s no one’s business if they used IVF.

    But speculation is completely normal when a woman is over 40, especially if it’s a multiple pregnancy. But now I can see why they probably delayed the announcement of twins… If IVF was used, the odds that there could be losses early in pregnancy is high. (Especially Multiples.)

    I’m sure they didn’t want anything to be public until they were more certain, which I could understand.

  61. JQ says:

    I love love loooove Sparklepony! LMAO!
