The next day, he added a more serious note of thanks: "I'm in the happiest place I've ever been in my life. I never had more amazing things happening. I am humbled by God's Favor!"

After rushing to the hospital in their Rolls Royce Phantom, the duo welcomed their son and daughter as Carey's mega-smash "We Belong Together" played. The girl weighed 5 pounds, 3 ounces, and measured 18 inches long; her brother weighed 5 pounds 6 ounces, and was 19 inches long. The couple's rep said the babies have not yet been named.

Although Carey has yet to Tweet or talk about the exciting news, she was showered with congrats from celeb pals on Twitter, like first-time mom-to-be Alyssa Milano, Nicki Minaj, Jermaine Dupri and Katy Perry.
