Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon - Nothing Means More Than Family

Posted in: , , ,

Nick Cannon was asked recently what the key has been to maintaining his successful marriage to Mariah Carey and he responded that it was making times spent together extra special and understanding and supporting each other in their careers. Nothing however, he said, trumps time spent with family.

"We are always busy, and I think that is one of the keys to it. Before we were married we were always working hard and on the go. We understood career is a priority. So, then when you can have a family with someone like that who is so understanding, it makes those times when you are together even more special. It's like wow, 'I know how much your career means to you, but nothing means more than our family.' It's almost this potent, concentrated time when we are all together."

The "Americas Got Talent" judge talked with omg! about what a typical family night is like in the Cannon/Carey household.

"My favorite thing to do is lay in bed with my son, daughter, wife, and a bowl of popcorn and watch whatever," Cannon told omg!. "Seriously, [Mariah and I] have memorized every Shrek from 1 to 4. We will watch 'Shrek the Halls' in summer. 'The Lion King' is on all the time. You know we will see 'Monsters University.' But when the kids fall asleep, my wife will watch our shows. We love 'Boardwalk Empire,' 'Scandal,' and 'Homeland.'"

Mariah Carey and Nick Canon celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary last month by renewing their vows at Disneyland {see post}, and the couple has been going strong ever since they began secretly dating in March 2008 and married two months later.

Mariah Carey gave birth to daughter Monroe and son Moroccan, in April 2011. When asked if the twins were in their terrible 2's stage yet, Nick Cannon exclaimed about what milestones they have crossed.

"They are people now! Before they were babies, now they are people running around and talking, getting into everything. They both love music. My son really loves sports." Not to mention fashion. "Their swag is all the way together. They have everything from Jeremy Scott shoes to designer glasses that my daughter wears. They are a stylish duo."
