Even though there’s a 10-year age difference between Mariah Carey and hubby Nick Cannon, the actor/comedian/singer reveals to OK! that he’s the one who has trouble keeping up with her.

“I work out at least five or six times a week just to stay in shape,” Nick tells OK!. “But we don’t really work out together too much because her stuff is way too hard for me.”

Adds Nick, “She does all of this core body stuff, it’s crazy. I just lift weights and hit the boxing ring a bit.”


Last night, Mariah joined Nick in Washington, D.C., where he was hosting the TeenNick HALO Awards (Watch them Friday night at 8pm EST on TeenNick and 9pm EST/PST on Nickelodeon!). And when it comes to positive celebrity role models for teens, he explains that you’d hard-pressed to find a better one than Taylor Swift.

“She’s positive and upbeat,” says Nick to OK!. “And she’s having such an amazing year.”
