Mariah Carey gives birth to twins on wedding anniversary
Singer Mariah Carey on Saturday gave birth to twins, delivering a boy and a girl on the third anniversary of her wedding to Nick Cannon, her spokeswoman said.

The babies were born shortly after 9 a.m. local time at a Los Angeles hospital, said Carey's representative, Cindi Berger.

Berger said the babies weigh over 5 pounds each, and the girl is 18 inches long while the boy is 19 inches. The names of the children were not immediately known.

Grammy winning singer Carey and Cannon, an actor and rapper, were married on April 30, 2008.

"Babies were born on their wedding anniversary," Berger said in a statement. "Not even Mariah could plan that!"

Carey announced she was pregnant in October. At the time, Cannon said the couple delayed telling people about the pregnancy because Carey once suffered a miscarriage.

Cindi 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."

Asked if the birth was planned to coincide with her anniversary, she said: "No, not even Mariah could plan that. Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm. Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital and she very calm and the music was blasting. When they walked into the hospital, [Nick] was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go to the maternity ward, and I said to her, 'that's right out of I Love Lucy,' and she laughed.
