Celebrity Pregnancies Decoded: The Breakdown of Hollywood’s Million-Dollar Babies

Nick Cannon + Mariah Carey + Twins-620-480

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon


First remembered for his classic film, Drumline; 2001 single, “Your Pops Don’t Like Me;” and mid-2000’s MTV improv show, Wild ’N Out, Nick Cannon has made quite the stride from rising comedian/actor/rapper to a young media mogul in the making. In April 2008, Cannon popped the question to Mariah Carey, and the couple secretly said, “I do,” in a private ceremony in the Bahamas. Shortly after, everyone’s favorite goofy drummer was named the Chairman of TeenNick (formerly The N) in 2009, and now currently runs a shoe line called Project Canvas (CAN Visually Achieve Success) and watched his wife give birth to twins, Moroccan Scott and Monroe Cannon, in 2011.


Since coming into the entertainment industry in late ’90s, Cannon has pulled in a net worth of $15 million, and has shown he has every intention of spoiling who he likes to call #DemBabies with his earnings. But as the TV chairman has certainly grown up over the years, no one can forget the twins’ mother! From platinum-selling albums to her most recent appointment as a judge on American Idol, Mariah Carey is no stranger to dangling wealth. In 2000, Carey received a $100 million deal signing with Virgin Records, and has reached an approximate net worth of $500 million. The seven-octave singer is currently bringing in the dough, making a reported $18 million from her appearances on the upcoming season of American Idol. There’s no question, #DemBabies got it made.
