Mariah Carey Reveals Gender of Her Twins!

Heather Chaet

mariah careyMariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon just announced the sex of their twins. Drum-roll: they are having a boy and a girl! Sound familiar? It should. Seems Mariah and Nick are the latest in a long list of celebrities having boy/girl twins.

Who will be lil' Mariah and Nick Jr.'s fellow twins on playground?

Of course, the first that come to mind are twin celeb royals, Knox and Vivienne, Brangelina's twins. On the music side, you have Max and Emme, twins of J-Lo and Marc Anthony. Let's not forget the boy/girl pair belonging to Julia Roberts, Phinnaeus and Hazel.

Chris Daughtry and wife Deanna had Adalynn and Noah via a surrogate last year. Also with the help of a surrogate, you have Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka welcoming boy Gideon and girl Harper last October.

Noticeably, none of these celeb parents did the rhyming twin name thing. No cutesy Karen and Darren. No one even entered into the alliteration game, like Chase and Charlie. Thank goodness ... that's a celeb trend we don't want popping up in our preschools.

What do you think of the celebrity twin baby boom? What should Mariah name her twins?
