Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Name Newborns; Say What?  1Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have released the names of their new-born twins and don’t fret if you haven’t been able to guess them, despite the singer’s teasing clues. The names are a little weird.

Carey urged fans to guess the names and offered one tantalizing clue; the name’s begin with the letter “M.”

The baby girl is named Monroe Cannon after Marilyn Monroe. Carey reveals that the sultry 1950s-era sex siren is one of her idols (who knew!).

The baby boy, who is a few seconds younger, is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, so named after Carey’s New York apartment.

The apartment is known as the “Moroccan Room” because it’s decorated in a North African style. But the space has meaning beyond that.

Cannon proposed to Carey in the apartment in 2008.

Scott is a little more conventional. It’s Cannon’s middle name

Hopefully, that’s what they will call him.

Carey gave birth at 12:07 p.m, Apr. 30, in Los Angeles. Rep Cindi Berger confirmed the first born was a girl, weighing in at 5-pounds, six-ounces, followed by a boy at 5-pounds, six-ounces.

Her delivery also coincided with her wedding anniversary to Nick Cannon, who Tweeted the news.

My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life,” he wrote. “I won’t ever be able to top this.”
