This Friday singer Mariah Carey will allow the public to see her twins for the first time on “20/20.”
Mariah and husband, Nick Cannon sat down with Barbara Walters in their New York apartment for an interview to discuss Mariah’s pregnancy, their marriage, and their twins Monroe and Moroccan.
The interview will air on ABC next Friday, October 21 at 10 p.m.
When Carey announced her pregnancy last fall, she revealed that she had been pregnant shortly after their marriage but had suffered a miscarriage.
The twins were born in May in Los Angeles, which was also Carey and Cannon’s third wedding anniversary—they renewed their vows the next day in a hospital ceremony conducted by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Berger said that Monroe was born first, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces and was 18 inches long. Moroccan was 5 pounds 6 ounces and was 19 inches long.
Their son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, because the top tier of Carey’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room and this was where Cannon proposed to her. Scott is Cannon’s middle name and his grandmother’s maiden name.
Their daughter’s name is Monroe Cannon. She was named after Marilyn Monroe, who the singer has said was an inspiration to her throughout her life. Carey also owns the icon’s white piano and has put in her will that the piano will one day go to the Smithsonian.
She has already stated that she doesn’t plan on having any more children.
