OTRC: Mariah Carey's music played in the delivery room as she gave birth to twins

Mariah Carey wanted to welcome her twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe with the sounds of her own music, according to the singer's husband Nick Cannon.

Cannon explained to Gayle King, according to People, that when the twins were born via C-section on April 30, "My wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey -- her Madison Square Garden performance of 'Fantasy' -- so they came out to a round of applause."

Carey, 41, gave birth to a son and daughter, Monroe and Moroccan, on her and Cannon's third anniversary. She is still recovering from a Caesarean delivery in a Los Angeles hospital, while the babies are being treated in a neonatal intensive care unit.

Carey was recently visited by a social worker amid suspicions she may have abused her newborn twins by consuming alcohol and drugs while breastfeeding at a hospital, Cannon said previously.

"Recently I guess there was this big, child protective services were called with allegations that there was some drinking and drugs and all that going on while in the hospital, which again makes no sense to me," Cannon, 30, told Piers Morgan on his CNN talk show on Thursday. "How would a hospital even allow that?"

CNN quoted Cannon as saying that Carey consumed a small amount of Guinness, an Irish beer, following a suggestion by a nurse.

"It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, a small amount of Guinness, the dark beer, that the ... yeast improves breastfeeding," he told CNN's Piers Morgan in an interview airing on Thursday. "I guess someone maybe overheard that ... and this is a good way to make a quick buck, or call the tabloids. It's kind of sad that people think that we'll make money off of these newborns."

As for his children's unique names, Cannon recently explained to E! News, "There's a lot of meaning. We put a lot of thought into those names. I think we did a good job." He adds, "They ain't gonna be mad at us when they grow up."
