Mariah Carey celebrates her golden 50th birthday amid quarantine and coronavirus concerns. The singer claims she's eternally twelve, and fans react.
Mariah took to Instagram to share some birthday shots with her family. A slideshow of three adorable photos featuring her and her twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
The happy trio did not let the quarantine dampen their spirits and evidently, had a great time with cake and glamorous party hats. The singer's caption read:
"Spent 3.27 at home with my family and virtually with fans and friends from all over the world. Thank you for all the love #eternally12."
In her pictures, the birthday girl is clad in a stunning black number with her hair falling to her shoulders in loose waves. The first of the photographs feature Mimi and her twins with a chocolate cake crowned with twelve candles, two of which are shaped like the numbers, one and two.
The other cake which appears in the second picture has "Happy Birthday Mariah" sweetly inscribed on it. Several fans wished her a happy birthday, including other celebrities, like Britney Spears, who left a sweet birthday message for the celebrant on Instagram, adding that Mariah was the main reason her singing career began.
Quarantine has nothing on Carey's family spirit.
The "We Belong Together" crooner holds family, especially her twins in high reverence, and always incorporates them in everything she does; being restricted to staying in has nothing on that spirit.
This includes the December 2019 remake of her grand hit "All want For Christmas Is You," which was released some seventeen years before they were born. The twins featured in the remade music video, leading a crew of candy-striped backup dancers in a winter wonderland set. In a Youtube Q&A, Mariah expressed how thrilled she was at her kids' involvement. She said:
"Roc and Roe have their own little moment, and that makes me so happy."
The remake wasn't the kids' first time making a cameo in their proud mother's music video. They also appeared in the video for "In The Mix," which she released in September 2019 as a theme song for the "Black-ish" spin-off series, "Mixed-ish."
The singer who is famous for her high whistle notes shares Moroccan and Monroe with her former husband, Nick Cannon. The pair began their relationship in 2008 but eventually split in 2016.
Cannon and Carey have established a smooth dynamic in co-parenting their adorable kids and have found a way to build a healthy environment in which children can grow up. Birthdays and everything else in between is filled with love for the family, and it is evident in the singer's birthday post.
