Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renew wedding vows
Mariah Carey had twins in an L.A. hospital Saturday — and on Sunday, hubby Nick Cannon tweeted, "Yep we just had a wedding in the hospital!" The couple followed through with their tradition of annually renewing their wedding vows, this time with an assist from the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Cannon also publicly thanked Sharpton, who took the red-eye back to New York to discuss Osama bin Laden's death Monday.
"I am just leaving Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon," Sharpton said Sunday in the first of a series of messages on Twitter. "She had twins yesterday on their 3 rd anniversary. I had prayer with them and the babies. I also conducted the renewal of their vows and the blessing of the newborn twins. Mariah looks GREAT, and the babies are beautiful. I am so moved by the sincere spiritual commitment of Mariah and Nick. They have not let success separate them from GOD. I am so proud."
Carey and Cannon's daughter and son — the little lady was born first — came on the same day as their third anniversary.
A week after he pitched "Cleophis Cannon," the couple let the world know they were expecting twins.
[For the record, 12:30 p.m. May 2: Sharpton visited the couple and tweeted about it Sunday, not Saturday, as this post originally said.]
