Nick Cannon & Son, Moroccan Salute Their ‘Hero’ At BET Honors

It’s only been a week since his mild kidney failure, but Nick Cannon is back on the mend, and already stepping out on the town; for a special occasion, of course.

People reports that Cannon and son, Moroccan, now 8-months-old, took to the stage at Saturday’s (January 14) 2012 BET Honors to present Mariah Carey with the Entertainer Award, and celebrate the “angel” who’s been by his side through thick and thin.

“When times are hard, you guys don’t see her at 3 o’clock in the morning, getting up in the middle of the night, fixing me soup when my kidneys ain’t acting right. Mariah Carey does that,” Cannon gushed.

“It is truly, truly a blessing to be here tonight, and I am humbled and in awe of everyone’s presence, but mostly my hero right there,” he continued, pointing toward Mariah, 42, who sat in the audience.

“To my incredible husband who [has been] out of the hospital two days – look at him all strong and healthy and big and too buff for the tux — it’s incredible,” said Carey upon accepting her award.

Cannon, feeling much better since his recent hospitalization, even did a little beatboxing on stage for little Roc.

“This is what makes Roc the most happy,” the proud mama explained. “And Miss Monroe Cannon‘s backstage, darling. We were both sewn into our dresses, so she couldn’t make it out.”

“She’s a diva like her mama,” Cannon quipped.

The 2012 BET Honors airs February 13 at 9|8c on BET.

    They seem like attention wh*rs really to bring one of there babies to an award show and on stage they really can’t go a min with out pimping of there kids or ther life. Make me wonder are they in financial trouble as well as needing the attention of others.

    From what I’ve seen, it definitely appears that they favour Moroccan over Monroe — both Mariah and Nick. I really really hope that I’m wrong, but it’s just seemed that way to me. :/

      THIS! I felt that way too and I honestly don’t know why would someone ever do that, make differences between their children. To be clear, I’m not saying they (especially Mariah) are actually doing it, it’s just the impression I have. If it were true, it would probably be cause Morrocan looks more like Mariah, thus being ‘prettier’. Only my assumption.
      And I agree with the fame wh*res comment.

    I’ve heard them call their daughter high maintenance and a diva a few times now. FFS, she’s a baby who isn’t even a year old at the moment. Just because her mother is vapid and selfish doesn’t mean her daughter needs to be conditioned to be too at such a young age.
