How could anyone keep up an arbitrary feud when they have cuteness like this in their lives, right? Not that we’re suggesting the timing of the release of another batch of super-adorbs pics of Moroccan and Monroe Cannon is in any way related to Mariah Carey quashing rumors that she’s feuding with fellow new American Idol judge Nicki Minaj. It’s just a very good argument in favor of Mariah being a sweet and fun mama, not the diva she’s been painted as.
“How are we gonna feud in two days? A feud takes a little longer to spread out [than that],” Carey told MTV News as she sat with the rest of the judges before taping auditions in New York on Monday. “It’s fun, it’s music, it’s singing, it’s laughter,” she added of what her first few days as a judge have been like.
And now for your own fun, and cooing pleasure, here are the “Dem Babies” photos Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon released yesterday, the proceeds from which will go to the Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Mariah.
As you book your brunches, scramble to order flowers, pick out the perfect card and all those other things you have to do before Mother’s Day this Sunday, we had a little revelation: Maybe our moms should be thanking US for a change.* We have arrived at this conclusion because of the very wise words of celebrity ladies, who, shockingly, appear to really, really like having children. The latest comes from a tweet brand-new mom Jessica Simpson wrote last night: “I am so in love with baby Maxwell. I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced,” she wrote.
Interesting fact: Jessica may have cribbed this line from someone else. Or all of the people. But specifically, Miranda Kerr who said this year of having baby Flynn: “I love it, I really love it. … He’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Oh, celebrities, why must you insist on making the rest of us look bad? Just over six months after giving birth to cuter than cute twins Morocco and Monroe, Mariah Carey is flaunting a hotter than hot body on the cover of Us Weekly.
But OK, she’s not trying to make us look bad. She’s just doing her job as new spokesperson for Jenny (f.k.a. Jenny Craig), and presumably trying to inspire us follow her example.
During pregnancy, Mariah told USA Today, she had edema, a painful retention of fluid in the tissue. “My legs looked three times the size of what my legs do right now. I thought I would never be the same person again.”
While Jessica Simpson is off maybe possibly selling her hugely surprising pregnancy news to OK! for a reported half a million, we have to applaud the latest move from Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. After showing off Monroe and Moroccan on 20/20 last Friday, they launched a website, DemBabies.com, that features photos absolutely designed to make your womb ache. Also, they are designed so that you can purchase them from WireImage.com, and the proceeds go to the Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Mariah.
“We deliberated for so long about how to reveal the first pictures of our babies to the world,” reads a message on the site. “We just didn’t want to do the typical thing and display them in a tabloid (not that there’s anything wrong with that ).”
Check out two more pics after the jump. Do it for the kids!
Aww. We’re going to have to wait until Friday to see Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s babies, Moroccan and Monroe, from the front on ABC’s 20/20. And that’s when we’ll apologize to little Roc and Roe for forgetting about them while we’ve been counting down the days until Babyonce is born. We didn’t mean it!
In the meantime, we’ll distract you with pics of other super-cute celeb offspring. And to see just how much you know about famous kids, we’ll leave their names off until the very end. No peeking!
