Mariah Carey Gives Birth To Twins
April 30 will be a very special day for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Not only did the two celebrate their anniversary but MC gave birth to the couple's first set of children. Mariah delivered the babies at 12:07pm in Los Angeles at an undisclosed hospital. Cindi Berger, Mariah's rep, confirmed the children's births to the Associated Press, saying the baby girl was born first, weighing 5 lbs. 3 oz., and was 18 inches long; and the boy was born after, weighing 5 lbs. 6 oz., and 19 inches long. Berger shared more details about the day with People.com:
"She's doing great," Berger said to People and told them they were listening to Carey's "We Belong Together" after the children were born. "I spoke to both of them and they are both completely overjoyed."
When asked if the birth was planned to be on the anniversary day she said: "No, not even Mariah could plan that."
"Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm. Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital and she very calm and the music was blasting," she added. "When they walked into the hospital, [Nick] was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward, and I said to her, 'that's right out of I Love Lucy,' and she laughed."
