Go ahead: call Nick Cannon "Mr. Carey" -- he doesn't mind.

"It doesn't bother me at all," Mariah Carey's husband told UsMagazine.com at Monday's NBC/Bravo Summer Press Day in L.A.

Cannon isn't offended by jokes about being married to the superstar singer -- arguably more famous than he. "I love [the jokes], I welcome it. It's fun...You take it with a grain of salt," he told Us.

The star added that he knew what he was signing up for when he surprisingly wed Carey after a whirlwind romance in spring 2008. "She is, to me, the most famous woman in the world. I knew [my life] was going to change, and I was up for it. Considering everything, I was like, 'hey, it doesn't matter."

As previously reported, Canon, 29, and Carey, 40, will once again renew their wedding vows this weekend (their second wedding anniversary is Friday). "This time it will be more traditional," he told Us. "The last two weddings we had were kind of island-driven and off in remote places. This time we're going to do it home."

The couple plan on throwing a similar shindig each and every year, he says. "I have to do it every single year...if you were married to Mariah Carey, you'd want to marry her every year too! I just have to keep doing it to make sure it's real."

As for the latest baby rumor (debunked by Carey's rep over the weekend), he quipped, "I might just have to hurry up and do it so the rumors can go away...her schedule is starting to calm down, you never know. In the next year or two the rumors might come true."

And despite the "diva" label that follows his wife around, he says she's a happy homemaker. "She is a great cook," he raved. "And she is also a neat freak, so she likes to clean."
