Move over, Willy Wonka! Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s 5-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, have the most insane candy room in their home, according to photos that their proud dad posted to Instagram on Wednesday, December 14.
“This room is the reason for all the hyper-activity!!! Patiently waiting for the Sugar Crash!!!” Cannon, 36, captioned an image of the adorable twins goofing off in a white room overflowing with candy bars, bags of gummy candy and oversize strings of candy necklaces. In it, the dynamic duo wear matching red onesies as they peek around a big pink cotton candy machine.
In another image that the America’s Got Talent host shared, a bespectacled Monroe is holding up a rainbow-color lollipop that’s bigger than her head, with bins of colorful gummies and hard candies piled high to her right. Cannon also posted a cute snap of a proud Moroccan getting started on their Christmas tree decorations.
“ROC put the first bulb on this year!!!” Cannon wrote, adding, “While Monroe had other plans in the Cannon Candy Shop!!!” In an interview with Us Weekly in 2012, Cannon admitted that he has always been a “candy fiend.” “I love candy,” he told Us. “Always been that way since I was a kid. … You know, we say stuff as a kid that, you know, ‘Oh, I want to grow up and make toys, I wanna have a candy store in my house,’ and I was like, all right, well, this is something that I always said I wanted to have as a kid.”
But candy wasn’t the only fun the lucky twins got to enjoy on Wednesday night. Other photos Cannon shared with fans showed the pair deep-diving into a giant pile of red balls in a makeshift ball pit in the living room. “A quick dip in the ball pit before bed!!!” Cannon wrote.
Cannon is also prepping for his second go-around at fatherhood. In November, Us Weekly exclusively revealed that the All That alum is expecting a third child — this time with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.
“Who said it wasn’t mine?” Cannon replied when asked about Bell’s pregnancy during an interview with the Breakfast Club on November 17, before confirming the happy baby news. “I’ve got a baby on the way … absolutely … God said be fruitful and multiply.”
In a recent interview with Power 106, Cannon admitted that his ex-wife had confronted him over the baby news, but that the pair were able to joke about the situation.
“She came at me first about it, so it was actually easier,” he said on Tuesday, December 13. “I don’t know how she heard about it, but she called me, and she was funny with it. She was like, ‘Mm-hmm, I heard about you out here in these streets.'”
