MARIAH CAREY’S SMARTEST MOVE EVER WAS MARRYING NICK CANNON, WHO CLEARLY HAD HIS MOMMY’S LOVE AND CAN GIVE IT BACK TO HIS WOMAN.
The America’s Got Talent host is a a devoted family man, smitten by both his superstar wife and his wee twins Monroe and Moroccan. And he isn’t afraid to show it.
During a visit to Anderson Cooper’s doomed talk show, the 32-year-old dad described life in the Carey-Cannon household.
“It’s a good time! The kids run the house. We just running and chasing after them,” Cannon told Cooper. “And then, you know, my wife being the diva that she is, I’m trying to keep up with it.”
“America’s black Ryan Seacrest” admits she spends more than his fair share of time on diaper duty. “We all do it, but for some reason I get that duty a little bit more. “I’m not scared of it. I go in, I put the gloves on.”
Cannon addressed the drama that broke out earlier between Mariah and scary pop star Nicki Minaj during taping of American Idol‘s current season. He accused the producers helped promote the tension to benefit from the publicity. “I felt like they fed off it a little bit,” he said. But he also Mariah handled the controversy beautifully.
“My wife is the classiest and strongest woman I’ve ever met, so she’s handling it the way she’s supposed to handle it,” he said.
Ever happy to play second fiddle to his diva wife, the couple stepped out together Saturday night when Cannon hosted Nickelodeon’s 2012 TeenNick HALO Awards. According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail the lovebirds delivered lots of PDA to each other.
Iz got to make amends to the happy couple because way back in 2008, I predicted their marriage would last six months before Mariah dumped him for something or somebody else. But they’re making it work, and keeping it “real.” And that takes true staying power.
