Cannon: Mariah Carey is 'spiritual'

Nick Cannon knew Mariah Carey was 'the one'

Nick Cannon has said he knew "instantly" that Mariah Carey was the one for him.

The couple, who have two-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe together, tied the knot in 2008.

The America's Got Talent host told Ebony magazine: "It was early on when I found out how spiritual she was, and we had conversations about kids and how to live life.

"For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I've always wanted," Mail Online quoted him as telling the mag.

Nick posed with Mariah, who was previously married to music mogul Tommy Mottola, in a pool in matching red outfits for the cover of the issue.

He said wouldn't want their children to become child stars.

"Me personally, I wouldn't put my kids on television," he said.

"But as easy as it is for me to say that ... if I saw that they really really wanted to and they had the drive, then I would fully support it. As long as there's balance at home, then they could do whatever they wanted to do."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
