Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon open up to Barbara Walters about marriage, pregnancy and life as new parents in an exclusive interview on "20/20," that aired 10/21/11
Carey admits the couple experienced a miscarriage before she became pregnant with twins Moroccan and Monroe, explaining she used acupuncture for relaxation and underwent fertility treatments to try to conceive. The happy couple will also debut the now six-month-old twins on camera for the world to see.
Carey also opened up about their marriage, telling Walters that her first marriage to record executive Tommy Mottola, had made her "afraid of the concept of marriage." Even with that fear, Carey and Cannon married just weeks after they started dating, and so far it seems to be working. "I'm just so happy to be in love and to be here," said Mariah of her marriage to Nick. "When he's nice he's the best guy in the world."
Carey calls her babies "incredible" and adds that they just might just have some of their mother's talents, explaining they really respond to music. While they could have the talent, 31-year-old Cannon, who has been acting since he was a teenager, told Walters he wants to make sure his kids get their education first.
"I want them to be able to sing as beautifully as their mother. I want them to be able to play instruments and everything. But I want them like ... 'Go get a Ph.D," he explained.
