Mariah Carey never wanted to have children The 44 year old singer was “convinced” she would never be a mother from a young age, but says having twins Moroccan and Monroe, now three, with husband Nick Cannon brought a new purpose to her life She told ‘Entertainment Tonight Canada’: “I never thought I was going to have kids.I remember being a little girl and going ‘I don’t think I’m going to have babies when I grow up’. For a while I was probably convinced of that and I just realised things change and that’s what happens… [The twins] give me a reason to live. Mariah Carey has penned a track for her children (who are nicknamed Dem Babies) which appears on her forthcoming new album, and the tots even sing on the song She explained: “It’s called ‘Supernatural’. Dem babies are on the song.
And they were singing this one when they were just two years old. Mainly it’s Miss Monroe singing but Rocco is on there.” The ‘Hero’ hitmaker’s main priority when writing new music is for it to make her happy, so she is happy to mix up genres to suit her moods She said: “I still want to be able to do things that make me happy. If a mid-tempo record makes me happy and it’s a bit of an old school, hip hop beat, then cool.”
