Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have announced their new twins’ names: The little boy is Moroccan Scott Cannon, and the little girl is Monroe Cannon.

Think the little guy’s name is a mouthful? The best part are the kidlets’ nicknames: ‘ROC & ROE! LET’S GO!,’ Cannon said on Twitter.

The babies were born Saturday in L.A., on Mom and Dad’s third wedding anniversary, and the couple renewed their vows in the hospital Sunday with the Rev. Al Sharpton doing the honors. The babies names hit the street Wednesday.


New dad Nick told Radar Online that his son now has ‘the same middle name as me -- Moroccan is like Mariah and my name together. Roc for short, strong name.’ It was in the Moroccan Room, the top tier of Carey’s Manhattan apartment, where Cannon proposed, CNN reported.

As for the little lady, she’s Monroe as in Marilyn Monroe -- with no middle name, because Mom doesn’t have one of those.

Are you ready for Roc and Roe? Or did you prefer one of the suggestions from Ministry of Gossip readers?
