Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's twins -- a boy and a girl -- were born, the singer has been teasing fans, urging them to guess the names of her newborns. But it seems like Mariah's game was a little less than fair.
The couple finally revealed their babies' names on Carey's blog (via Us Magazine). Their baby girl is named Monroe Cannon after Marilyn Monroe -- Carey's icon of inspiration.
Monroe's brother will go by Moroccan Scott Cannon. The top floor of Carey's New York City apartment is called the 'Moroccan Room' due to it's North African aesthetic. The luxurious space is also where Cannon proposed to Carey in 2008. Cannon's son also shares the same middle name, Scott, as his actor dad.
But we shouldn't be shocked by the pair's unconventional naming choices -- their road to marriage was also seemingly off-the-cuff. The pair, who met after Cannon appeared in one of the songstress' music videos, married in April 2008 after a brief two-month courtship. And similarly unexpected, they tied the knot in an intimate, low-key ceremony -- quite the contrast from Carey's 1993 over the top wedding to music executive, Tommy Mottola.
But this odd couple, Carey is 12 years Nick's senior, seems to have a rare industry staying power. And from painted pregnant bellies to Twitter guessing games, this couple proves that all it takes to make it work in Tinseltown is a bit of light-hearted fun.
Congratulations to Carey, Cannon and their one-off brood -- Moroccan and Monroe.
