Mariah Carey's Adorable Twins Are Royalty in the Making


twin baby bootiesBy now you may have seen the perfect-looking photos of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's gorgeous twins, or you may have caught the 20/20 segment with Barbara Walters where the celebrity couple lets the mother of all interviewers into their home -- and the babies' lavish nursery.

Of course, it's a Barbara Walters interview -- meaning there are probing questions asked, deep secrets about infertility and miscarriages revealed, and of course a nice sprinkling of tears along the way. It's been said that Walters never met a person she didn't make cry. Okay, it hasn't really been said that way, but you've heard the jokes too.

But what struck me most about the video and the to-die-for photos was how completely over-the-moon cute the 6-month-old babies are -- a boy and girl name Moroccan and Monroe (Roc and Roe for short). So cute and coddled and immaculately dressed and coiffed, they could be royalty. American royalty.

Like all celebrity children, these two are clearly pampered to the nines. What normal babies get a nursery that looks like Nate Berkus designed it? Seriously, the Carey-Cannon twins could easily have slipped into Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding party without anyone batting an eye. In one photo, Monroe is even wearing a baby tiara, for heaven's sake.

So let's imagine for a second that some day, the United States will form its own monarchy and prop up its own princes, princesses, kings, and queens. Or, if you prefer, let's pretend that the U.K. will start letting Americans vie for the crown, kind of like we started letting actors from other countries compete for the Oscar. Most would be plucked from Hollywood, the offspring of our fave stars. Here are a few other celebrity children destined for the throne

Suri Cruise -- The Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise mini me is already showing a preference for high heels and elegant clothes. Plus the pint-sized girl struts around like she owns the world. She is totally regal, to the point of seeming precocious and haughty. My money is on Princess Suri.

Apple Paltrow -- She's a natural at the whole child-of-privilege thing, just like her famous mom Gwyneth. The blond cutie pie is a little more hipster glam than some other celebrity kids, but Apple already has all the confidence and grace of a princess. Watch out, Kate.

The entire Jolie-Pitt brood -- Take your pick: Shiloh (gender-bending tendencies and all), Vivienne, Knox, Maddox, Zahara, and Pax would all wear the crown with ease and finesse. They're the children of our most dazzling celebrity couple, so they're used to the role. Can't you just picture each one as prince or princess of a different country?

Prince Jackson -- Michael Jackson's son has the name going for him. How could he not be heir to a monarchy one day?

Louis Bullock -- Sandra's adopted baby boy looks like a suave little man in charge, and he's barely a toddler. He has a wise-beyond-his-years thing going that screams royalty.

What celebrity babies and kids do you think have the makings of royalty?

I think all those kids mentioned are really cute but I don't think they are exceptionally more cute and sweet than anyone else's kids just because of who their parents are. I seriously doubt that these kids really care whether they are spitting up on designer clothes or not. Providing them with the lavish nurseries and outfits worth hundreds of dollars are really more to make the parents feel good than about the kids having expensive tastes.

Royalty is not a question of being wealthy or wearing fancy duds. It's a question of genes and/or marriage. There are plenty of people in royal lines who couldn't afford fancy duds or just don't care about such things. They work in non-glamorous jobs and flop around in tatty old PJs just like their fellow humans.

@MrsWbray the designers gave Mariah & Nick the clothes and things for a discount as they do all celebs thats how hollywoods always been. not that it matters all that does is that mother and children are healthy because the pregnancy nearly killed all three of them. Roc n Roe are some of the cutest celeb kids I've ever seen probably since either Michael & Danny Neeson or Molly Ringwalds Twins Adele & Roman of course Michael and Danny were pre destined to be heartbreakers with a great grandfather like sir Michael Redgrave a grandmother like his eldest daughter Vanessa and a mother like her daughter Natasha Richardson. besides that girls usually naturally have expensive tastes

How they paid or whether they paid for the clothes and all that wasn't the point of my earlier post. My post was about authors of articles such as this putting children on pedestals towering over everyone else because of who their parents are. Do I think that Suri

Sorry, hit submit too soon. Cont. Do I think that Suri Cruise is more special than any other kid because of who her parents are? No. I think that she is special in her own way because all children should feel special as individuals.

All of those kids are so cute and certainly 'look' royal with all the designer clothes and such. I think Suri Cruise seems to have already found her own style which is cute.
