Mariah Carey confirms unusual baby names

Following the recent announcement that both her newborn twins' names would begin with the letter 'M', Mariah Carey has finally revealed what she and husband Nick Cannon have called the baby boy and girl. 

Their son has been named Moroccan Scott Cannon, Scott is Nick's middle name and apparently was also his grandmother's maiden name, and a statement on Carey's website explains the unusual choice:

"The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan!"

The couple's daughter is called Monroe Cannon, after icon Marilyn Monroe because she "has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life."

Watch Cannon talk about his anticipation and excitement at the prospect of being a father here:
