Mariah Carey gave birth to a live version of one of her hits, her husband Nick Cannon has revealed.

In a move that won't surprise many, Carey's husband said on The Gayle King Show that she gave birth to her twins Monroe and Moroccan as a live version of her song 'Fantasy' played.

He said: "My wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey – her Madison Square performance of 'Fantasy' - so they came out to a round of applause."



Cannon showed a brief glimmer of self-awareness by acknowledging the oddness of the twins' names. "Of course we've got to keep our celebrity weirdness up," he said.

Previously he explained the names of the twins by saying: "Monroe, obviously, is named after Marilyn Monroe, who my wife has been inspired by and loved for many years. And you think about Moroccan and that’s kind of like my name and Mariah’s name phonetically together."
