Celebrity couple, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, have been doing a very good job of staying out of the public eye lately. In one of the first times since the birth of their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, Carey is opening up about her new life.
The iconic singer admits to OK! Magazine that motherhood is no easy task, especially when you are the mother of twins. “I feel like, in a lot of ways, children come into the world to teach us,” she says.
Meanwhile, first-time father, Cannon is said to be a natural when it comes to the children. Carey expresses, “He already has this natural talent with children – they take to him right away. He’s so nurturing, loving and fun. He definitely will be a hands-on Dad.”
In an effort to keep their twins from becoming jaded by their celebrity, the couple is determined to provide their children with a balanced lifestyle. Carey says, “It’s going to be a delicate balance between raising them around glitz and glamour and keeping them grounded.”
What about those semi-controversial nude pregnancy photos Carey posed for shortly before the arrival of the twins? The songstress reveals that while the pictures made her look confident and in-charge with her baby bump, she was slightly reluctant about the shoot.
She tells the magazine, “I felt very vulnerable about taking the nude pregnancy pictures, but then I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to document a once-in-a-lifetime experience.” Carey went on to say, “My ultimate goal was to share that incredibly personal moment with my true fans.”
It is expected that as the two settle in to their new roles as mother and father they will once again return to the public eye. For now however, they are said to be quite comfortable keeping their twins away from the frenzied media and paparazzi – and there’s nothing wrong with that.
