Mariah Carey does not ask for much for Christmas. She wants to spend some family time with her twins, Moroccan and Monroe. The artist has revealed how excited she is for the holidays this year and because her kids are older, they all can enjoy it more. Speaking to Ross King on ITV’s Lorraine, Mariah explained: ” “[I’m] so excited for them to have Christmas this year, they really finally understand a little bit more about the holiday. I’m like finally! They’re only four.” and adds “Christmas is the best time of the year for me. Even better with having the twins, absolutely, couldn’t be better”.
The singer has not fully explained how she will spend the holidays but it is likely she will come together with her ex husband, Nick Cannon for a family Christmas. The former couple did celebrate Thanksgiving together and Nick said to Ellen DeGeneres that ‘they will always be a family’ despite their split. Nick also explained, “It’s just so important when, if a marriage does not work out and you have kids, to show them love and not have somebody talking badly about the other person it’s great.”
This is a very positive outcome from the couple’s split. Although they are not together they still have a civil relationship for the kids and still act like a family which is very important. Christmas could also include Mariah’s new boyfriend, James Packer. This gives Nick the chance to finally meet him. Mariah has been dating the Australian businessman since June this year.
Nick recently expressed his desire to meet her new man during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I haven’t. I want to though,” Nick said. “I think that would be cool. It’s still like, we’ve talked about it and stuff, it seems like it’s cool.” Nick seems to be fine with Mariah moving on and he is not ready to find love again. “I’m not ready for that,” he told Ellen, who insisted he “must be dating lots of girls”.
“I wouldn’t say dating,” Nick insinuated “I mean, I have friends and we hang out, but I’m not ready to do anything seriously, especially because I’m really trying to make sure I can establish being in my kids’ life and working. I’m always so busy, so if I’m not working they’re my number one priority.”
