265 of 343: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon welcomed their twin son and daughter on Saturday, April 30, 2011. 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.

On May 4, the couple revealed the twins' names - Monroe, named after Marilyn Monroe, and Moroccan Scott.

Monroe Cannon, who was born before her twin brother, was named after late Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, one of the singer's inspirations. Scott is Cannon's middle name and is also his grandmother's maiden name. Cannon had proposed to Carey in a room inside her New York apartment that is dubbed the 'Moroccan Room' due to its Moroccan-inspired decor.

The twins are couple's first children together and Carey recently declared that she doesn't intend to have more. (Pictured: Mariah Carey performs at the Festa do Pećo de Boiadeiro de Barretos on August 21, 2010.) (Photo courtesy of MariahCarey.com)
