It’s ALL love between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon! In fact, Nick even took to Instagram to congratulate his ex on her engagement to James Packer — and he did it in a totally hilarious way. Check it out here!
Nick Cannon, 35, doesn’t harbor any ill will towards his ex, Mariah Carey, 45, and her new fiance, James Packer, 48. The America’s Got Talent host made his feelings known on Instagram by sending a touching message to the lovebirds on their exciting engagement. See the funny pic!
Nick shared a hilarious meme of himself looking miserable in the hospital with the writing, “It’s just a ring, Nick…” But, don’t worry, he doesn’t actually feel like the joking photo suggests! “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!!!!” he wrote. “HILARIOUS! #AllLove. Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.” Awww!
The “Infinity” singer and Nick were married for six years and have two kids, twins Moroccan and Monroe, 4, together. They confirmed their split — after much speculation — in Aug. 2014, but have remained amicable and have been co-parenting their children admirably ever since. Mariah and James got engaged on Jan. 21 after just eight months together.
“It was all a surprise to her and caught her off guard,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about the proposal. “She was stunned and overwhelmed in the moment and said yes.” The happy couple was photographed leaving their engagement party on the night this all went down, and you just couldn’t miss the massive, $10 million ring the 45-year-old was sporting on her left hand.
“[James] wanted to create something very rare and very beautiful around this diamond he chose,” ring designer Wilfredo Rosado explained. “And I followed his lead.” Luckily, Wilfredo had also had multiple conversations throughout the years with Mariah about what she likes, so it was the perfect team to put this gorgeous bling together!
