Mariah Carey's "dem babies" hitch a wagon ride
The famous siblings looked absolutely adorable wearing matching white jumpers as they clung to either side of Mariah's slimmed-down figure in an image released by her fan site Team Mariah. The smiling "Dreamlover" singer carried her fraternal twins in a dark dress, black patent leather peep-toe heels, and bug-eyed sunglasses only a mega star could pull off.
Her husband of four years, actor Nick Cannon, shared the second image of little 'Roc and 'Roe riding in a red wagon near potted flowers on an outdoor patio. "Ridin around and they gettin it," the 31-year-old tweeted to his 3.4 million followers today.
Riding "shotgun", Monroe smiled in her hot pink tracksuit with brother Moroccan sat behind her in a striped hoodie and blue jeans. Her toddlers, also known as "dem babies" on their official website, are regularly seen wearing high-end Petit Trésor designer clothes.
Carey, whose net worth was estimated at more than $500 million last year, spares no expense when it comes to spoiling her ultra-cute babies. At their lavish black-tie birthday party last month, the tots were gifted a toy Ferrari, rocking horse, and miniature white piano while celebrating at the Plaza Athenee in Paris.
Mariah also reportedly spent millions of dollars creating a luxurious nursury for her little ones, including Chelsea Sleigh cribs, Clara changing table, 24-carat gold and onyx sofa, diamond-encrusted iPods, and a flatscreen TV that comes down from the ceiling.
Accompanying their mother on her jet-setting lifestyle, the "Fantasy" singer informed the audience at her concert at this week's Mawazine Festival in Morocco that her children were watching the show from their hotel room. The day before the concert, Carey was spotted holding little Moroccan while arriving at the airport in the Morocco capital, Rabat.
Mariah and husband Nick were inspired to name their son Moroccan after Nick proposed to her in a Moroccan-style room. His twin sister Monroe was named in honour of the iconic singer, Marilyn Monroe. Last November, Mariah became the new global ambassador for Jenny Craig after losing 30 pounds in three months.
"Pregnancy was probably the best and the hardest thing I'll ever go through," she said in Shape Magazine's May issue. "I know for a lot of women, it can be wonderful and relatively easy. But for me, it was like 'Okay, honey, do you have to do everything the hard way?'"
Mariah, who's the third best-selling female artist in the United States, worked out between an hour to two hours about three to four times a week to drop to a size four-six. The singer with the five-octave vocal range also does Pilates and cardiovascular exercise in a swimming pool. "I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that's changed. Since having the babies, I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet," said Carey, who gave birth via C-section.
Mariah's estranged HIV-positive ex-prostitute sister issued a desperate plea to make peace and allow her to meet her niece and nephew. Alison Carey, 50, spoke to The Sun from her Long Island outpatient facility, begging Mariah to get in touch with her.
The mother-of-four said, "If I had a message it would be, 'just call me'." Her elder sibling - who revealed she worked as a prostitute in New York to clothe and feed their family before Mariah found fame - hasn't spoken to the star properly since having a huge argument in 1994.
