Mariah Carey gave birth to her newborn twins on Saturday in Los Angeles and has kept fans guessing as to what she named the boy and girl but today a rep for Mariah and Nick Cannon revealed their names to CNN.
The baby boy Moroccan Scott Cannon and the baby girl Monroe Cannon. The rep, who says “It has been a long, emotional journey for this family, and I couldn’t be happier for all of them,” went on to describe the inspiration behind the babies names. Here is what she had to say:
“Their son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon. Scott is Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.
The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan!
Their daughter’s name is Monroe Cannon. Mariah’s rep says she does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one. Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life.”
Thw twins were born on April 30, the same date as their third wedding anniversary. What do you think about the names? To be honest they’re not as outrageous as I expected them to be considering that Mariah is their mother.
