Mariah Carey Celebrates Her Twins' Eighth Birthday With a Series of Sweet Throwback Photos

Mariah Carey showed her two children a lot of love for their eighth birthday this week. On Tuesday, the singer wished the fraternal twins, Moroccan and Monroe, a happy birthday with a sweet Instagram gallery full of throwback photos that even included a few pics of Mariah cradling them just moments after their birth. She followed up her original post with a second series of photos from the extravagant birthday party she threw them that same day.

"Happy birthday Roc and Roe," the caption reads. "You are my everything and even though you're turning 8 today (how did that happen???) You'll always be #dembabies. thank you for showing me the true meaning of love."

Mariah welcomed Moroccan and Monroe in 2011 with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, three years after they were married in 2008. They officially parted ways in 2014, though they've remained friendly to one another and continue to respectfully coparent the twins. After spending the day sharing his own collection of photos of Roc and Roe, Nick left a sweet comment under Mariah's throwback post, writing: "Can a brotha at least get some photo credit!!! LOL Thanks for the most amazing gifts ever!!!"
