'The most incredible gift ever'

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their third wedding anniversary today by becoming parents to a baby girl and boy. Carey's representative, Cindi Berger, confirmed the twins' arrival, saying the superstar delivered at 12:07 pm EDT at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles. Berger says the baby girl was born first, weighing 5lbs 3oz and was 18 inches long; her brother was next, at 5lbs 6oz and was 19 inches. Berger says the couple has not named the children yet.
Cannon drove Carey to the hospital in their Rolls-Royce Phantom. Berger said the 41-year-old Carey, who had gone through false labour, was calm, thinking that it was another false alarm. Meanwhile, Cannon, 30, was so nervous he went to the wrong department at the hospital, and was guided to the maternity ward by a nurse. Berger says they were listening to Carey's We Belong Together after the children were born.

Cannon tweeted this afternoon: 'My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!' The couple are expected to renew their wedding vows on Sunday. They got married in 2008 after a whirlwind romance. They were the subject of endless baby rumours, and the couple actually were expecting shortly after their marriage. However Carey had a miscarriage - they did not reveal the miscarriage until she announced her pregnancy last autumn.
The couple plan to live a bi-coastal life, and have luxurious nurseries in both New York and Los Angeles. As far as more children, Carey recently declared she's done. Mariah giving birth come days after Cannon said in an interview that the twins could arrive 'any second'. 'It could happen tonight, literally,' Cannon told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show on Wednesday. 'It can happen any second, we're all pins and needles here. She's made it further than most people with twins make it - I think they've got college educations already!'
Asked if he planned to be in the delivery room, Cannon admitted: 'I'm not too good with hospitals - I get woozy with blood. If they assign me a nurse too I can be there. 'I have a newfound respect and admiration for my wife - seeing what they go through; I could never do that. My hat's off to her, she's been amazing.' He said their earlier miscarriage was 'really tough', especially because they are so high profile - but he also believes it may be the reason they are now expecting twins, one boy and one girl. 'I was like, 'Don't worry baby, God's gonna bless us in an even bigger way',' he said of the period after Mariah's miscarriage. 'And now we have the abundance of two babies.'
He says he has a key aim of keeping his children 'grounded' - but he will do it his own way, not with the help of experts. Asked if he was busy reading all the books on parenting, he said: We got all the books - as long as you buy the books, that means you're a good parent. I just never read them. 'My mama didn't use those books and I turned out all right. 'I've heard that the best advice is to take no one's advice because everyone's journey s different.'
