ESSENCE Fest Headliner Mariah Carey Demonstrates the Art of Co-Parenting

Mariah Carey embraces her status as diva extraordinaire, but when it comes to co-parenting her twins with ex-husband Nick Cannon, she is not with the drama! 

Last night Cannon shared an Instagram picture of himself, Carey and their 4-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, having a nice dinner with Mother’s Day just around the corner.

“A little dinner after Karate Class!!” Cannon wrote. 

Cannon publicly showed support when news broke of Carey’s engagement to billionaire James Packer. He joked on Instagram about her massive ring, but called the pair a “great couple.”Cannon previously told PEOPLE his secret to co-parenting was “just staying focused and putting priorities in order.”
