Nick Cannon: Mariah and I Are Closer Than Ever

It's almost been six months since Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey invited their twins into the world, and Nick tells us the experience has brought the couple closer together. Hollyscoop caught up with Cannon at KISS FM's JoJo Jam Tour on Thursday. Nick told Hollscoop:

"I mean, [Mariah and I] are connected for life for real now, regardless of whatever goes on."

Recently, Nick and Mariah made the decision to allow Barbara Walters into their home for a post-baby interview. When the interview airs on 20/20 Friday, it will be the twins primetime debut. 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 tells us.

"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."

The new parents have said in their past that the twins already have their own personalities, and Nick confirms it.

"They're their own individuals. They act like themselves but they definitely have their traits, you know, of their parents as well," Nick tells HS. "I mean, my daughter is definitely a diva. So she takes after her mom."

So Monroe is already a little diva, asking for her Similac shaken, not stirred. But what about Moroccan?

"He's cool. He's more laid back, like me," Nick tells us.

And although he's been spending most of his time with the wife and kids, Nick's not taking a break from his music career anytime soon.

"I'm working on [an album]," Cannon confirms to Hollyscoop. "It's coming. It'll be out at the top of the year. I have records with Akon, T-Pain, Flo Rida, Snoop Dogg…We got some good stuff. The Rangers, too."
