Now, Life & Style brings you inside Moroccan and Monroe’s (nicknamed Roc and Roe) luxurious NYC nursery filled with Roberto Cavalli designed matching outfits, plush stuffed animals and AFK cribs worth $3,594 a piece!
“I wanted to create a beautiful, tranquil, cozy environment,” Mariah tells Life & Style of their two beautiful nurseries in their Bel Air Mansion and Tribeca penthouse in NYC.
“Designing the nurseries with Gail Sedigh of AFK Furniture and Mario Buatta was so challenging because I had such specific ideas I wanted implemented,” she tells Life & Style. “I feel like I’m bringing two individuals into the world, so I wanted to do more than cookie-cutter styles in blue and pink.”
So the singer made sure to encompass everything she desired.
But no gift is greater than being a mom. “I feel so doubly blessed to have such a perfect start to our family,” Mariah gushed. “It’s perfect — it couldn’t be better.”
Personally, I’m torn between being all “Way to spend like a zillion dollars on stuff these babies will only use for a year or two” and being all “OMG where are my giant stuffed animals?! Why am I not Mariah Carey’s kid? Why is the world so unfair? YOU FAILED ME, MOM!” Where are you guys on this?

At long last! Meet Moroccan and Monroe, Mariah Carey‘s babies with husband Nick Cannon. Well, OK—in the preview clip from 20/20 you really only see the backs of the babies’ heads. (But! The full interview is embedded below! BABIES!)
If you have time, do watch the whole interview, which first aired last night. I’d always wondered what makes this couple tick, and the way Mariah Carey is always on the verge of snapping at Nick Cannon is kind of adorable. It really is! She can’t stop messing with him, and he’s totally into it.
- Mariah’s L.A. home has a huuuuge chandelier. (Lady, I’d expect nothing less.)
- The happy couple has indeed nicknamed the twins “Roc and Roe,” which is just, oh, no.

Did you hear? Maybe, but probably not. I know a lot of you guys don’t go cray-cray over Justin Bieber, nor do you flip your shit over Mariah Carey, so you just may hear it here on Evil Beet first: Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber are – sob – teaming up to ruin one of my favorite Christmas songs, ‘All I Want for Christmas (Is You)’. I know, I know; it’s a Mariah Carey song and you probably think I should know better than that, but let’s put it into perspective: this song originally came out in 1994, when I was eleven years old. And I was a Mariah Carey fan back then, because come on. Who wasn’t? Um, hello, ‘Fantasy’? Jeepers. Anyway, even though I grew up and out of Mariah Carey, this is a song that stayed close to my heart Christmas after Christmas, and even when I hear it to this day, I’m brought back to shopping at the mall with my mom for friendship bracelets for my BFFs (with my own allowance, what what!) and hoping that my mom’d slyly try to buy something for me without my seeing (OF COURSE I’D SEE). It makes me think of Trapper Keepers ’round the holidays, Christmas breaks that seemed to go on for months, and dreaming about my crush, counting the days ’til I’d see him in Social Studies again. It makes me think of cheesy adolescents cheesily waving “See you next year!” on the last day before holiday break, handmade mittens, and the smell of turkey roasting and cookies baking.
But now? Mariah’s bringing Justin Bieber into the mix? This is probably a dream come true for today’s eleven-year-olds (who probably don’t even know who the crazy lady singing on Bieber’s new Christmas album is), but for me? My heavens.

Why, Nick Cannon could do any number of things while listening to Mariah‘s music! He could learn knitting. He could mop the floors. He could teach little Moroccan all about science. The sky’s the limit when it comes to imagining Nick Cannon doing things while jamming out to “Always Be My Baby.” But what is the one thing that he does do?
Strokin’. Yes, Nick Cannon touches his penis while listening to his wife’s songs. Romantic or creepy, you decide!

Remember how intense Gisele Bundchen was about birthing her child? Er, wait, I’m sorry: having her child come through her body? Well Mariah girl here was almost just as bad. OK, I liked – way worse. According to husband Nick Cannon via the Daily Mail:
Nick Cannon says he was the ‘production manager’ as he revealed he filmed the labour and controlled the music while doctors adjusted the lighting. Mariah, 41, had ordered her 1995 live performance of Fantasy to be played as the babies arrived so that they would be born to a round of applause. Nick, 30, told chat show The Talk: ‘It was definitely over the top. I was the production manager of the whole production. I was the DJ. I had the camera on one hand.
‘The lighting had to be perfect. My wife was like, ‘if you’ve got a camera, you make sure the lighting is right.’ The doctors were adjusting the lights. ’But it was amazing because she wanted a certain song to be playing when the babies came out. ’She wanted Fantasy, from her live performance from Madison Square Gardens so they could come out to a round of applause.
Wait, now. Let me get this right. She wanted a certain song playing (one of her own songs, of course) so that the babies could come out to a round of applause? Is that a fact? You know what my daughter was born to? Probably me screaming in demon-voiced agony while wringing the nearest nurse’s neck. No, but really. Seriously and honestly. Who behaves like this? Who seriously has such control and OCD issues that even something as “natural” as childbirth has to be planned down and analyzed to the second, with each detail in place, and if – God forbid! – one thing is out of place, the entire damn thing’d probably be ruined for EVERYONE? Good heavens, man.

WOW. Am I the only one who thought that Mariah’s more recent pre-babies figure was sort of too far gone to ever return to what she was in, like, ’98? No? Good, then I’m not alone. This is the most recent photo of Mariah Carey, sent to us via Twitter feed.
Can you seriously believe this photo? It looks like it was taken back in ’98, complete with happy-non-crazy-diva face.
Damn, Mariah Carey. Damn.
