Lighten up, guys! Nick Cannon posted a sweet message to his estranged wife, Mariah Carey, via Instagram in the early hours of Saturday, January 23, poking fun at himself following the news of her engagement.
“Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove,” the 35-year-old captioned a meme of himself lying unconscious in a hospital bed, supposedly of a broken heart. “Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.”
In the funny image, comedian Kevin Hart hangs over the edge of Cannon’s hospital bed looking concerned, with the words, “It’s just a ring Nick…..” superimposed over the top of the photo.
On Thursday, January 21, Carey’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly that the iconic singer was indeed engaged to her billionaire businessman boyfriend, James Packer — and had the bling to prove it!
Carey’s diamond engagement ring has a whopping 35-carat center stone with two tapered baguettes on either side of it, finished in a platinum setting.
All told, the impressive rock, designed by Wilfredo Rosado, is one of the biggest rings on the planet, besting Elizabeth Taylor’s famous ring and outshining other big-name celebs’ bling — Jennifer Aniston wears a 10-carat ring, Kim Kardashian rocks a 15-carat stunner, and Beyoncé flaunts an 18-carat diamond.
Cannon filed for divorce from Carey in December 2014 after six years of marriage, though the pair continue to co-parent their twins, Moroccan and Monroe, 4.
