London, May 5 (ANI): Earlier this week, Mariah Carey took to Twitter to stir up a guessing game about the names of her new-born twin babies, only revealing each would begin with an M, but now the pop singer and her husband Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins.

The boy and girl, who were born on Saturday in Los Angeles, have been named Moroccan Scott and Monroe respectively, reports the Daily Mail.

The unusual monikers have sentimental value to the couple, who renewed their marriage vows on the same day the children were born.

The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor, and it is the room where Nick proposed to his wife.

Scott is 30-year-old Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.

Their daughter was named after Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.

Mariah, 42, has long cited the Fifties actress as an inspiration and she even owns the late star’s white piano.

They decided not give their daughter a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one. (ANI)
