Sounds like Mariah and Nick’s twins can’t wait to meet Mommy and Daddy!

Mom-to-be Mariah Carey had quite the scare — a good scare might we add — when she started having contractions March 27. Funny thing is, it was her 42nd birthday! But the twins stayed put for a little while longer, so Mariah and her hubby Nick Cannon, 30, left the hospital and headed home. 

Mariah later tweeted in the early hours that the babies, a boy and a girl, “really wanted 2 celebrate w/us/share the anniversary! I started having contractions last night..went 2 the hospital.”

The singer added that she has to stay on bed rest for a little while longer. “They almost came on 3/27- happy anniversary in deed!!!” she tweeted. “We have a few more weeks 2 go but- wow!!!: )”

Since Nick has been so worried about delivery day, we hope he didn’t suffer too much with this false alarm!
