The pop superstar gave birth to husband 's babies on Saturday, April 30 - the couple's third wedding anniversary.

Mariah Carey decided against immediately releasing the names of the tots, but teased that they both began with the letter 'M' in a Twitter post.

But it appears she can no longer keep the news a secret and revealed all on Wednesday, May 4.

In a tweet to fans, a representative for the singer writes: "Mariah & Nick reveal the names of #dembabies Monroe Cannon & Moroccan Scott Cannon!"

Carey called her baby girl Monroe after her idol, late Hollywood icon , while the couple took inspiration for its son's name from the Moroccan Room in the new mum's New York apartment, which features North African-themed decor. It was also where Cannon proposed to Carey after a whirlwind romance in 2008.

The baby boy shares his middle name with Cannon, which is also the maiden name of the TV personality's grandmother.

Little Monroe was not given a second name as Carey doesn't have one either, according to a spokesperson for the superstar.
