“It’s my first time having 12-year-olds, and I have a set of them,” he said. “And we’re having real conversations, because, you know, their lives are far from normal. Their mom is one of the biggest entertainers to ever live, and their dad is me.”
Mariah Carey Often Shares A Peek Into Her Life As A Mom
Carey often shares videos and photos of her mom life with her twins, vacationing, singing, and just acting silly and having fun.
In one recent video, she has some fun with one of her hit songs while riding in the backseat of a car with her son Moroccan. Captioned, “#itsawrap #Rocstarr,” the mother and son duo lip sync to her song, “It’s a Wrap” in a cute way. Watch out Hollywood! Moroccan may have a future in acting after that flawless performance.
The fun video generated tons of hilarious comments.
“Must be Nick on the phone,” one person wrote. Another added, “He said stop playin with my mama!!”
Monroe also had a chance to have some fun with her mom’s song, “It’s a Wrap.” As she’s lip syncing along to the song, Carey is in the background just waiting to jump in hilariously.
Actor and writer Kenya Barris took to the comments to ask, “Hold on… is that your baby????
Other followers also had some things to say about Carey’s mini-me singing her song. While many people thought that was Monroe actually singing the lyrics, one person pointed out that it’s actually Carey.
“Mind blown at how many people don’t know the song is sped up and IS STILL Mariah’s voice 😂 her daughter was just lip syncing 😂,” she wrote. Another person added, “I love this 😍😍😍😍 omg !!!! And the legacy continues!!!”
But fans of the singer know that Monroe CAN actually sing, and very well. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! Around Christmas time, Monroe joined her mom on stage during her popular Christmas performance for a duet.
Many of Carey’s fans were stunned by her daughter’s amazing voice. The performance was the first time the mother and daughter duo sang a duet together.
“She sounds like you in your debut era. You can hear it. The rasp, the tone, the way the words are pronounced. She has a beautiful voice,” one person wrote. Another added, “Monroe the next generation of Diva 😍😍.”
