The Twins Are Here!
Mariah and Nick welcomed a son and daughter

The arrival of their twins on their third wedding anniversary on April 30 was not planned by Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, but it was a welcome surprise. "My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life!" Nick tweeted just hours after the big event, joking, "I won't ever be able to top this!"

The happy couple celebrated with Champagne, music and an extra-special renewal of their vows. "Mariah was actually very calm for the birth," reveals an insider. "She had music during it — Nick created a special playlist with her favorite songs."

As they did last year, Mariah and Nick renewed their wedding vows with Reverend Al Sharpton presiding in the hospital and adding in a special blessing for their newborn boy and girl. "Mariah looks GREAT, and the babies are beautiful," Sharpton tweeted.

It's a particularly sweet time for Mariah and Nick who finally have everything they're ever longed for in life. "They are so incredibly grateful for these children, they truly see them as a gift from God," says a friend. "It was such a long road to this moment."

At the hospital, the new parents' moods have gone from ecstatic to jubilant. "Mariah needs to rest, but she's just so incredibly overjoyed, it's been hard. And Nick is just over-the-top excited. He's been videotaping every moment, and actually, he's been the one shedding most of the tears — it's been an emotional time for both of them."
