NEW YORK (CBS4) — Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names they’ve picked out for their newborn boy and girl: Moroccan and Monroe.
The couple chose to name their son Moroccan Scott Cannon after the Moroccan-inspired decor of the top tier of Carey’s New York City apartment. The so-called Moroccan Room is also where Cannon proposed. They picked the middle name Scott since it’s both Cannon’s middle name as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.READ MORE: Bronze Bust Unveiled At Burt Reynolds' Hollywood Gravesite
