PIC: New Parents Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Leave the Hospital
After two weeks of bed rest, new mom Mariah Carey, 42, finally left UCLA Medical Center on Saturday. Joined by husband Nick Cannon, 30, and twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe (who were swaddled in blue and pink blankets), the happy family drove off in their Rolls Royce Phantom together.
"My wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey -- her Madison Square performance of 'Fantasy' -- so they came out to a round of applause," Cannon said in an appearance on The Gayle King Show last week.
Unfortunately for the first-time parents, not everything about Carey's two-week stay was as harmonious.
"Child Protective Services actually came to me while I was in the hallway and said that they were here to see me because there had been allegations that there was drug and alcohol use during the stay in the hospital," Cannon told CNN's Piers Morgan last week. "I was like, 'Well, how would that even be possible? How could the hospital even allow that?'"
"It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast improves breastfeeding," Cannon explained. "I don't know if someone heard that, but then they were saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a story."
