Nick Talks About Newborn Twins

>> Saturday, May 14, 2011

EW talked to Nick Cannon about his first stand-up special, his wife Mariah Carey, and the pair's recently born twins, Moroccan and Monroe. Excerpts from the interview are below.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Now that you are a father, you're probably getting great material from the twins.
Yeah I got tons of jokes already. Ready to hit the stage ASAP.

How is it being a father?
Ah, man, it's amazing. It's surreal. Probably the most beautiful thing that's ever happened to me is to be able to have a family and to be able to just live in that moment as long as you possibly can.

The names Moroccan and Monroe have gotten a lot of attention. Did you two anticipate that?
I had no idea it was gonna get that much attention. We don't sit around and like calculate what we're gonna do. These are things that we really feel. We're creative and eccentric people, so clearly a lot of people are gonna have opinions about the deicisions we make. But we don't really care at the end of the day. They're meaningful names to us and they're special to us. I guess that's the purpose of having a name: for people to take notice. So we're off to a good start.

Who do they look most like?
A lot of people [say] they look like me. It's funny, we have our own baby pictures in the room, and we're like holding them to the baby and like, "Wel l, he kinda has your head and my eyes." I would say it's a mixture of both right now.
