Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Want Their Babies To Be Heart Surgeons, Not Entertainers!

The superstar couple WON’T push twins Moroccan and Monroe to follow in their footsteps!

Nick Cannon insists he and wife Mariah Carey want their six-week-old babies ‘Roc and Roe’ to inherit their talents, but he wants them to choose a different path in life — out of showbiz! Is he right?

“I would love it if my children could have the vocal ability like their mother. And I think my sense of humor would help them throughout life,” America’s Got  Talenthost Nick, 30, says.

But he adds, “I’m not really a fan of encouraging my kids to be entertainers. Not because I think there’s anything wrong with it. I just think there are so many other things in the world to become and to strive for. I think a lot of times we value the entertainment industry way too much. I want my children to be heart surgeons or a college professor.”

In an interview with People magazine, Nick also reveals how parenthood has changed his and Mariah’s lives.

He says Mariah, 42, “really knows what being a woman is about now. This whole journey has been eye opening, she’ll tell you that.”

Nick, meanwhile, has turned into a sleep-deprived workaholic!

He says, “I’ve got mouths to feed now. I’ve got to put my kids through college, so that gives me a whole different drive. It gives me a different type of momentum to want to do more and be the best provider and father that I can possibly be.”

“I rarely even see a bed, so now when I go home it’s just spending all the time with my family and then back out to work again. So I kind of sleep more on airplanes and in the back of cars and stuff more than actually in the house.”

Wow… that’s one dedicated dad!

But is he right to steer his kids away from showbiz, HollyMoms? Or should they embrace any talents they inherit from their parents?
