Moroccan & Monroe Cannon: Mariah Carey's Twins

Story Behind the Names

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names of their newborn boy and girl, drumroll -- Moroccan and Monroe.

The couple chose to name their son Moroccan Cannon after the Moroccan-inspired décor of the top tier of Carey’s New York City apartment. The so-called Moroccan Room is also where Cannon proposed. The bouncing baby boy weighed in at 5 pounds, 6 ounces.

The couple named their daughter Monroe Cannon after Marilyn Monroe, who inspired Carey. Little Monroe was born first, at 5 pounds, 3 ounces.

Carey and Cannon’s twins were delivered on April 30 in LA. The pair got married four years ago.
