Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon renew vows day after birth of twins

05/02/2011 by Carollyn Nguyen

Proud parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their marriage vows one day after having twins.

The Rev. Al Sharpton conducted the ceremony at the hospital on Sunday. He also blessed the baby boy and girl, who were born on their parents' third anniversary.

"Thank you to @THEREVAL who came all the way to the hospital to renew me and my wife's vows and pray with our children," Cannon tweeted.

Their baby girl was born first at 12:07 p.m. ET and weighed 5 pounds, 3 ounces and was 18 inches tall. Her brother arrived shortly after and weighed 5 pounds, 6 ounces and was 19 inches tall.

Sharpton said the babies are beautiful.

"I am so moved by the sincere spiritual commitment of Mariah and Nick. They have not let success separate them from GOD. I am so proud," Sharpton tweeted.

Cannon, a 30-year-old radio and television host, drove the singer to the hospital in their Rolls-Royce Phantom and was reportedly so nervous, that he went to the wrong department of the hospital. Carey, 41, was calm since she thought the labor was another false alarm after having contractions on March 27.

No names have been announced for the babies.
