It’s a very special day for Mariah Carey and her husband comedian and radio personality Nick Cannon. It’s the day they celebrate their fourth year as husband and wife, and as an added bonus, their twins’ first birthday.
From day one, Mariah and Nick’s courtship has been filled with surprises. On April 30, 2008 the pair shocked their fans by announcing they’d wed in a private ceremony at her private estate on Windermere Island in The Bahamas, after dating for just six weeks. Naysayers were skeptical, but their true love prevailed and in 2010, they proudly announced that they were expecting — twins!
The fun didn’t stop there. Last year, Mariah gave Nick an anniversary surprise to be remembered when she gave birth to fraternal twins Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon, affectionately known by all as “dem babies,” on their third wedding anniversary. Although the world couldn’t wait to see the couple’s little bundles of joy, Nick and Mariah waited six months for the big reveal. In October 2011, the Cannons gave fans a first look at the twins in a 20/20 special and launched DemBabies.com to share news and photos.
Join us in wishing this proud mom and pop a happy fourth wedding anniversary today. To celebrate, let’s take a look back at the quirky couple’s most romantic moments through the years.
