“Parenthood is absolutely the most life changing experience we could ever have imagined. The love we feel for these babies is above and beyond anything we’d ever dreamed of.” – the proud new parents on their twins.

“They’re talking, and they’re singing! They love to sing a lot, and vibe with our music, so it’s great!” – Nick on his son & daughter’s musical talents.

“We have Miss Monroe Cannon – that’s what I call her, Miss Monroe. She’s very dainty and she holds her own bottle. She’s Miss Independent, definitely Miss Independent.” – Mariah on her beautiful daughter.

“We just [baby-proofed] the house recently, but they are so smart. They know how to take the knobs and the baby proof stuff off. They know what’s baby proof, so they are like, ‘We are not suppose to be touching that — so we are going to go touch that!’ It’s crazy!” – proud papa Nick on his “smart” kiddos.

“I was in a lot of pain because of the fact that they’re twins…. I had a rough one…. I just want people to be prepared that it can happen where you go through a rough time when you’re pregnant.” – Mama Mariah on her difficult pregnancy with the twins.

    How come these babies don’t look a thing like Nick?

      I think the one on the right looks a lot like Nick.

    • I Me Mine

      Because babies are made by two parents with many genetic factors that influence how they look. Kids don’t always look just like Daddy. Kids don’t always look just like Mommy. Kids are sometimes a blend of both. Try taking a junior high school science class. That might help.

    One year later, Moroccan is still the worst name I have ever heard. Why didn’t they just call him Scott?

  • Courtney

    shut the hell up both of the babies are beautiful and as long as they are healthy and happy which they are their names are secondary. unless you’ve gone through a journey simillar to Mariah’s you have no room to be critical of the names she & Nick chose. have you ever heard of the mothers genes being stronger than the fathers

    • Janna

      I don’t believe people should be critical of a child’s name, but what do you mean by “…unless you’ve gone through a journey similar to Mariah’s”?

      So if someone had an awful pregancy, they SHOULD be allowed to make fun of their names?

    What nasty comments on what should be about celebrating the lives of these infants. Good grief. Some of you must be absolutely miserable.

    Happy birthday to these beautiful babies!

      I don’t think they do either BUT WHAT IS YOUR POINT?

  • danny

    my point is just that, my point. Isn’t this a comment page? So if I think they don’t look like Nick, thats my point. Don’t I have the right to comment on how I see them.
