Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Proud Parents of Twins

Dem babies are finally here. After what seemed like the longest celebrity pregnancy in history, Mariah Carey finally gave birth to twins today.

Mimi and hubby Nick Cannon welcomed a boy and a girl on Saturday at 12:07 p.m. at an L.A. hospital.

Not only were they blessed with two healthy babies, it happened just days before their third wedding anniversary. Now that's a priceless gift!

The baby girl was born first weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces and then the boy followed weighing 5 pounds 6 ounces.

Mimi and Nick have not named their twins yet, but I’m praying it’s not silly names that the poor kids have to live with for the rest of their lives.

Mariah Carey’s hit, “We Belong Together” was playing in the background as Mariah delivered the twins. Of course Mariah would want her own music playing in the background. So very Mariah of her.

Nick recently confessed to Hollyscoop that he couldn't wait to be a father. "I'm very ready for fatherhood, I gotta be," he gushed to HS earlier this month. “I’m so ready. But I’m trying not to look too far ahead…you got to take it one day at a time, so I’ll take everyday as it comes.”

So now that she's given birth, what's on her wish list? More QT with her man. "[She wants] Me. She's tired of me working and running all over the place," Nick told Hollyscoop. "She just wants me to be there."

One things that’s certain is they’re ready to give those twins lots of love. “Wouldn’t it be weird if one was a songstress and one was some crazy hyperactive kid?” Nick proudly asked HS. “We’re definitely going to make sure that we got equal amounts of us with them and in them,” he added.

Congrats to the happy couple and congrats to us for not seeing any more painted belly pics from Mariah.
