How cute are Nick and Mariah? He loves her & lets her do what she wants! Isn’t that sweet!

Forget the sexy low-cut black dress you wear out to the clubs. Forget the day-to-day casual jeans and comfy tee. Neither of these looks are sexier to Nick Cannon than the way his wife Mariah Carey looks when she wakes up in the AM! “I like waking up to her,” Nick told HollywoodLife.com exclusvively at the Operation Smile Annual Gala at NYC’s Wall Street Cipriani on May 6. “I like how she looks when she wakes up in the morning!”

“I like casual,” Nick continued. Still, he recognizes that “obviously the glamour of the diva look is amazing!”

Luckily for Mariah, she can rock either look VERY well. She looks great in whatever she wears, so maybe that’s why Nick lets her get away without having any wifely responsibilities!

“She doesn’t have any duties,” Nick said, “Just to love me!”

Nick seemed to be missing his wife so much this week as “she’s [been] on the West Coast working on her Christmas album,” he told us.

To keep things interesting while they’re apart, Nick and Mariah sent each other cute text messages, make phone calls and send love-filled e-mails. The cutest one Nick got this week from Mariah “said KKLB with a heart,” Nick told us. But, again, he would tell us what the inside joke (“KKLB”) stands for. It’s “none of your business,” he exclaimed!

For Nick and Mariah, their marriage has been one true “Love Story” (Mariah and Nick wrote a song together about their relationship with that title). “It’s always hot,” Nick said. “It’s one of those things you don’t have to work at. It’s just there!”

How precious!
