  • Mariah Carey met actor and comedian Nick Cannon while they shot her music video for her song "Bye Bye" on an island off the coast of Antigua. After just six weeks of dating, the unexpected couple wed on Carey's private island in the Bahamas. At 35 weeks into her pregnancy, she gave birth to their fraternal twins, Monroe and Moroccan, on April 30, 2011.

    "When I first proposed to my wife, I did it with real ring pops," Cannon says. "I had a ring pop wrapper and opened it and was like, 'Look, baby, our favorite candy!' She had hers and she was like, 'Mine is broken.' She opened it up and it was her real engagement ring. So I'm a romantic guy!"

    Despite the "diva" label that follows Carey around, her husband (with his wife in the Caribbean) says she's a happy homemaker. "She is a great cook," he has said. "And she is also a neat freak, so she likes to clean."

    In August 2014, Cannon confirmed he and Carey had separated a few months earlier. He filed for divorce on December 12, 2014.

    Nick sat down with Meredith Vieira for an all-new episode of her chat show, on April 20, and admitted that his former wife will always be the love of his life.

    “It’s one of those things, I’m a hopeless romantic too,” Nick told the host on The Meredith Vieira Show. “Through this learning process, you never say never. To me one thing I know, that will always be the love of my life, always be my family and that’s never going to change.”
