- Mariah Carey is an iconic American songstress
- The Grammy winner and Nick Cannon were married from 2008 to 2016
- The former couple welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe in 201
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 12 years since Nick Cannon, 42, and Mariah Carey, 53, welcomed their little ones, fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe, into the world on April 30, 2011! Lovingly nicknamed “Roc” and “Roe” by their parents, the two youngsters have grown up near spotlight, but have remained down to Earth thanks to their doting parents. Even though Nick and Mariah’s marriage ended in 2016, the couple have remained quite supportive of one another, and they are always there for their kids!
Mariah proved such was the case with her incredible 12th birthday tribute to Roc and Roe posted to her Instagram, which included a reference to her megahit song “Always Be My Baby.” Alongside the snaps of her twins, Mariah wrote, “Happy birthday to my favorite people on the planet!!! I thank God for you every day! “Our love is Supernatural!!!” Ooh darlings ‘cause you’ll ALWAYS be my babies!!!”.
Today, we’re taking a look back at how much the twins have grown! Check out their best photos over the years, below.
Hollywood Walk Of Fame 2015
Since their birth, Mariah has made it a priority to have her two kiddos with her for major milestones. That was definitely the case when the “We Belong Together” songstress brought Roc and Roe to her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in August 2015, where Mariah received a star on the coveted landmark. The twins were dressed in white, while their famous mom posed-up in black and looked so proud! At one point, Roc even tiptoed behind his mom as she took a photo with her new star!
Kids’ Choice Awards 2018
Of course, since their split, Nick and Mariah have also come together for fun moments with their twins. The former couple made the Kids’ Choice Awards on March 24, 2018 a family affair with their kids! A favorite event of the foursome, Monroe and her mom wore matching leather outfits, while Nick and Moroccan wore white pants and hoodies with an orange slime design. The kids looked just like mini-me versions of their mom and dad! How cute!

But through big industry events and cameras flashing everywhere, the twins have led quite a ‘normal’ life, and Nick and Mariah are there to encourage them to achieve their dreams. “Mariah and Nick know their kids are really talented and just want them to be happy, so if singing makes them happy, they totally support it,” a source shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife. “They are very well rounded, kind kids and both are quiet and shy a lot of the time, too. They’re also very studious and they both get really good grades. They are actually pretty strict parents and keep them on a very strict schedule. They’re very normal kids.”
Mariah proved what a fun mom she was during the 2020 COVID home lockdown. She used her “500 hours” of beauty school training to give Roe a stylish hair makeover inside Mimi’s home salon. Roe was seen in a long pink wig, as Mariah took a brush and perfectly styled it while she wore a comfy floral robe:

Christmas Eve 2020
Mariah and her twins spent Christmas Eve together in 2020 wearing colorful leopard print jammies. The trio were too cute posing by their gorgeous holiday tree.
Christmas Day 2020
As 2020 came to a close, Mariah shared the cutest photo with Roc and Roe with her Instagram followers on Christmas day. It showed the songbird cuddling her kids tightly as they wore matching red flannel pajamas. Even Mimi’s beloved Jack Russell terrier made the family photo, which went down during her annual holiday getaway to Aspen, CO. Her “dem babies” sure have grown up!
