Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon’s twins steal show at Thanksgiving parade


Moroccan and Monroe have stolen the show!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s 11-year-old twins made an adorable cameo in their mom’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade performance on Thursday.

As the Grammy winner sang “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” her preteens danced inside of open green presents.

Monroe stunned in a white fairy outfit, featuring a tutu, wings and a tiara.

Moroccan, for his part, sported a red sweatshirt and black pants, nearly matching the nutcrackers performing alongside Carey, 52.

At the end of the act, the siblings stepped out of their presents to join their mom.

Carey, who performed in a mermaid gown and tiara, thanked Moroccan and Monroe for their backup dancing help via Instagram.

“Happy Thanksgiving!!!” the songwriter told her followers. “Grateful and so proud of my beautiful kids Roc and Roe, grateful for the lambily [sic] and for the precious moments in life. Now it’s reaaaallly time!!!”

Twitter users shared mixed feelings about Moroccan and Monroe’s surprise appearance.

“not mariah putting moroccan and monroe to work as background dancers at this parade,” one viewer wrote, while another called 2022 the kids’ “nepotism baby era.”

A third user, however, added, “it literally gave me goosebumps when I realized it was her twins Monroe & Moroccan in the giant gift boxes behind her. So adorable & a blessing to have her babies with her.”

Carey welcomed her twins in 2011 while married to Cannon.

Since the former couple’s 2016 divorce, the 42-year-old “Masked Singer” host has gone on to welcome nine more children with five different women.

Cannon shares son Golden, 5, daughter Powerful, 1, and son Rise, 2 months, with Brittany Bell, as well as twins Zion and Zillion, 1, and daughter Beautiful, 2 weeks, with Abby De La Rosa.

He is also the father of son Legendary, 4 months, and daughter Onyx, 2 months, with Bre Tiesi and Lanisha Cole, respectively.

Cannon is currently expecting baby No. 12 with Alyssa Scott, nearly one year after the duo’s 5-month-old son, Zen, died of brain cancer.

The “Wild ‘N Out” host spent time with Moroccan and Monroe on Wednesday, celebrating their “first snow” of the year.

“The Holidays are officially here!” Cannon captioned an Instagram video. “Roc & Roe are so excited!!”
