Mariah Carey Gives Birth to Twins

It felt like Mariah Carey was pregnant for the last 4 years and she was looking big enough to rival the Octomom in the baby bump department, but Mariah, 42, has finally brought her little ones into the world. Mariah's rep Cindy Berger tells The Associated Press that Mariah had a girl, 5 lbs., 3 oz., and 18 inches long, along with a son, 5 lbs. 6 oz., and 19 inches.

Mariah gave birth at 9:07 Pacific at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles.

Ironically, Nick Cannon and Mariah's wedding anniversary is also today. "I'm not trying to be a psychic, but we renew our vows every year so … It's probably going to be in the hospital this year. I can feel it," Cannon said Thursday when he guest-hosted The Talk. "We got the minister coming in, so this gown will not be a wedding gown, but a hospital gown."


Berger tells PEOPLE "she's doing great" and they were listening to Carey's "We Belong Together" after the children were born. "I spoke to both of them and they are both completely overjoyed."

Nick was reportedly nervous while diva Mariah Carey "was completely calm."

The baby names have yet to be released, but in January, Nick said that they won't get too crazy with it. "They won't be crazy names like Carburetor or something," he promised. "But they're definitely unique."
