Nick Cannon is a very proud new dad. The radio/TV host stopped by The Gayle King Show to gush about his new family, being Mariah Carey‘s husband, the unique names the couple chose for their twins and his first ever stand-up comedy special on Showtime called, “Nick Cannon: Mr. Showbiz.”
Nick made it clear that being part of Mariah’s birthing experience was a “production.”
“Now, my wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey — her Madison Square Garden performance of ‘Fantasy’— so they came out to a round of applause,” he revealed of the birth.
He also opened up about the unique names the couple chose for their newborn babies — Moroccan Scott and Monroe Cannon.
“Of course we got to keep our celebrity weirdness up,” he quipped of the unusual names.
Nick wears a bunch of hats — actor, comedian, rapper and radio/TV personality — but he is also known as “Mr. Mariah Carey.”
“At times it used to frustrate me,” he said of the moniker. “When I step back and look at my life as a whole, I could be called a lot of worse things than Mr. Mariah Carey.”
Gayle’s full interview with Nick airs tomorrow on The Gayle King Show at 10am (ET) on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
