First Photos of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's Twins

Six months after Mariah Carey gave birth, we’re finally getting the first glimpse of her adorable twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Mariah and Nick Cannon opened up their New York home to Barbara Walters for a special 20/20 interview on Friday night. Mariah talked about her super difficult pregnancy and how she does not want to have more kids.

"I don't think I understood the enormity or the magnitude of what it really does to your body," she explained. "It's not just, oh you don't look pretty and you have a bump."

But difficult pregnancy aside, they’re both super proud parents. "My family gives me everything," Cannon gushed. "It's just love," Carey said. "It's a beautiful place to be."

Nick Cannon spoke to Hollyscoop this week at KISS FM's JoJo Jam Tour on Thursday about how his life has changed since becoming a father. "I mean, [Mariah and I] are connected for life for real now, regardless of whatever goes on."

So what made the parents so long to show off their new brood? "I think it was a privacy thing. I don't really consider it showing them off to the world, that's not really what it was about. It was a timing thing to it," Nick told Hollyscoop.

He continued, "My wife has a wonderful relationship with Barbara Walters. It felt like if we were going to do anything we didn't want to selling our pictures and stuff like that. So you might as well invite someone into our home that we are comfortable with to do an interview and hopefully that would be that."

When Nick and Mariah got married after just a month of dating, people assumed it was just a publicity stunt, but three years later they’re still going strong.

"I never believe that anybody really likes me," Mariah said after Nick Cannon showed off his ginormous “Mariah” tattoo on his back. "I always think it's some kind of joke or something." Geez, insecure much? Sometimes it’s hard to believe someone as beautiful and talented as Mariah would be so insecure, but it just goes to show you, celebs, they’re just like us.

"Initially I was afraid of the concept of marriage [again]," she said. "But this is a different situation and a different time in my life." Now, Mariah insists, "No one will steal my spirit."
