If you think think that Mariah Carey is too much of a pristine princess to get her hands dirty, then you would be right!
Appearing on an upcoming episode of Anderson Live, husband and baby daddy, Nick Cannon, revealed that the 42-year-old American Idol judge somehow always seems to get out of diaper duty for their 18-month old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
“It’s a good time! Right now, the kids run the house. We are just running and chasing after them and then my wife is being the diva that she is. I am trying to keep up with them,” Cannon, 31, told Anderson Cooper and Jane Velez-Mitchell.
When Anderson asked point-blank if the Glitter singer was “a big diaper changer” and “who changes the most?” her hubby laughed incredulously, “Me!
I mean we all do it but for some reason I get that duty a little bit more. I am not scared of it. I go in, I put the gloves on,” he explained.
“Real men change diapers!” added guest host Velez-Mitchell with a sympathetic giggle.
Later in the interview, the comedian and rapper broached the touchy subject of his wife’s reported feud with reality co-host, Nicki Minaj. “I think it was what it was. A lot of theatrics and stuff,” said Nick.
“I guess I was a little disappointed in the producers because that’s not what American Idol is about. I felt like they fed off of it a little bit. You know, people are always going to have disagreements and stuff.
“Clearly you can see that they are a very intense judging panel but obviously everybody is interested in what the show is going to be about and my wife is the classiest and the strongest woman that I’ve ever met so she’s handling it the way she is supposed to handle it.”
