Moroccan Scott Cannon (son with Mariah Carey, one of the twins)
Date of birth: April 30, 2011
In spring, 2011 the famous singer Mariah Carey and a well-known standup comedian Nick Cannon became parents for the first time. They welcomed twins in one of LA clinics – the girl Monroe, who was born the first, and her brother Moroccan. By the way, the baby boy’s unusual name comes from Moroccan interior style. The walls of the room, where Nick proposed to Mariah were decorated in that way.
In spite of the fact that Nick and Mariah split, when their kids were just 3, the ex-America’s Got Talent host remains the inseparable part of his children life. As he told in his interview to “Us Weekly Video”, he spent holidays with Monroe, Moroccan and their mother. Mariah and he maintain amicable relationship for the comfort and happiness of their kids.
Cannon’s friends tell that Moroccan is the little copy of his father. By the way, the boy prefers the same style of clothing as his famous dad. He likes to wear sport-like clothes and prefers black and grey colors. When the boy was just 9 months old, he put a tuxedo for the first time. Then Moroccan visited BET Honors show with his father and mother.
When Nick’s son turned 2, he had a chance to see his parents exchanging their wedding vows at Disneyland – in that way Cannon and Carey wanted to refresh their married life. But that didn’t work, and a year later they split.
Now Moroccan is a witty 7-year old boy and school pupil. His mother called him in her interview to Jimmy Kimmel as “a technological genius”. The star told that a boy is interested in computer sciences and feels free in using Internet and making orders online. Thus, he spent $5, 000 from his mother’s card on purchases at an Internet shop. Besides, he ordered a dog online, using his father’s name. When Nick got a phone call from the shop manager, he had to cancel the order.
As Moroccan’s mother tells, he has everything he needs to be happy.
Monroe Cannon (daughter with Mariah Carey, one of the twins)
Date of birth: April 30, 2011
Monroe is a pretty daddy’s girl, the only daughter of a talented comedian. Nick likes to spend time with his smart and super-positive girl. By the way, little Monroe looks like a small version of her mother. “My daughter looks like a diva, she is the exact copy of her talented mother and like Mariah she always knows, what she wants”, the happy father shared in his interview.
By the way, Monroe seemed to inherit the music talent of Carey. She likes to visit the recording studio with her mom and very often tries to sing with her. “My kids have already recorded a song, but nobody had heard it yet”, Mariah told to Jimmy Kimmel. “Obviously, my kids are super smart and very talented”, added she.
Really, 7-year-old Monroe, who was named after the legendary actress Marilyn Monroe, likes to copy her mother’s manners. By the way, she chooses clothes of similar style and of the same colors as Mariah. Very often the small fashionista appears in public, wearing girly pink dresses and violet sweaters – and her mom likes these tints most of all, too.
Nick’s daughter likes to appear in public with her talented parents. She is not afraid of the crowd – she has already used to it. For the first time the girl appeared in public at the age of seven weeks. Then her mother posted in Twitter the photo of Monroe’s small hand. The star wasn’t ready to show her daughter’s face at that time. But 5 months later she took her twins to the event, devoted to the singer’s charity project “The Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Mariah”. Then Cannon and Carey’s fans finally could see their small angels.
Golden Cannon (son with Brittany Bell)
Date of birth: February 21, 2017
Golden “Sagon” Cannon was born in winter, 2017. His father Nick announced the birth of his third kid through Instagram. He welcomed small Golden at this world, and got numerous congratulations on the event. Even his ex-wife Mariah sent her ex-husband a sweet message with warm words and cheers on the occasion.
Unfortunately, to the moment of Golden’s birth, his parents have already split. The boy’s mother is less known, than his father. Her name is Brittany Bell; she is a model, an occasional actress and the holder of the title “Miss Arizona USA-2010”.
Brit and Nick started dating in December, 2014 soon after his split with Mariah. Their relationships were quite troubled. The couple separated several times. A couple of months after their last split the ex-beauty queen announced her pregnancy. Cannon shared parenthood duties with the woman, but they didn’t reconcile.
Cannon’s kids from the first marriage were really excited, when they heard, that their little half-brother was on the way. Moroccan and Monroe were present at Golden’s first birthday, arranged in an African style. Of course, the baby boy had a golden crown on his head.
