Mariah Carey’s twins born to her fans’ applause

Mariah Carey may be a mother now, but each detail from her children’s birth proves she’s never going to stop being a diva.

First, we learned that Carey, hubby Nick Cannon and their babies listened to the singer’s song, “We Belong Together,” after the birth. Then the twins — Monroe and Moroccan — were named after Carey’s idol, Marilyn Monroe, and a room in her apartment. Surely, that must be the most diva-ish behavior a new mother can muster. But no!

Proud papa Cannon explains to Gayle King: “Now 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.”

That’s right: Carey’s twins were born to the sound of fans applauding their mother.

Now that Carey and the twins have been released from the hospital, who knows what diva-tastic adventures await them.

(Thanks, Vulture!)
