Mariah Carey on Co-Parenting Kids With Ex-Husband Nick Cannon: “It’s Not That Hard to Make It Work”


Co-parenting doesn’t phase Mariah Carey one bit.

The diva was married to ex-husband Nick Cannon from 2008 until they finalized their divorce in 2016, and when they were together, they welcomed two kids, their adorable six-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, in April 2011.

And with Father’s Day ahead, Mariah admits to Entertainment Tonight that she has something fun planned for Nick. “He’s the kids’ father and he does really nice things for me on Mother’s Day, so yeah,” the 47-year-old said of the special day this Sunday, June 18.

“He’s a good guy,” Mariah added. “It’s not that hard to make it work. Now we can laugh, and joke, and do the good parts of when we had a relationship.”

The “Shake It Off” singer also recently opened up about her and Nick’s unexpected 2014 breakup. “I never thought I would have babies with someone and then get divorced. Like, ‘Oh, great job. Repeat your past,'” she said. “But life happens. And it was supposed to happen. It’s fine. For [my kids], I wish it hadn’t happened that way. For me, it was… too much, too little, too late. Guess it’s over. Call it a day.”
