Mariah Carey gave birth to twins on Saturday, April 30, 2011. The babies, a boy and a girl, were born in Los Angeles at 9:07 am PDT. The births were a double celebration as they were born on the couple’s third wedding anniversary.
This past weekend marked a double celebration for Mariah Carey (41) and her husband, Nick Cannon (30). They couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary on Saturday too, as Mariah went into labor with their twins.
Mariah’s baby girl was born first, weighing a very healthy 5 lbs., 3 oz. and measuring 18 inches. Her brother was born a little later, weighing a fantastic 5 lbs., 6 oz. and measuring 19 inches in length. Those are both great birth weights for twins, which are usually smaller than single births.
Proud new father Nick Cannon, who hosts “America’s Got Talent”, Tweeted the news. “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
Cannon drove Carey to the LA hospital in their Rolls-Royce Phantom after she began suffering severe labor pains. Apparently, the mother-to-be was calm. She had gone through false labor a few weeks ago and thought this may just be another false alarm.
However, Cannon was the one in a panic. He was so nervous that he took Mariah to the wrong hospital department. However, a nurse quickly re-directed them to the maternity ward and the birth apparently progressed smoothly from there.
Mariah Carey’s representative, Cindi Berger, has reported that Mariah is “doing great” after the birth. She revealed that her hit record, “We Belong Together” was playing in the labor room as the babies made their entrance into the world. Berger was also present at the birth.
The babies have yet to be named, but we will bring you that news as soon as we know it!
