After last week’s health scare, Nick Cannon is thankfully on the mend and back home with his wife Mariah Carey and their 8-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Nick’s dad reports that the America’s Got Talent host made it through his hospitalization for kidney failure with his sense of humor intact – and his marriage to Mariah stronger than ever.
“Nick and Mariah have a very strong bond. If anything, this unexpected illness has made them closer than ever and appreciate one another even more,” says James, who adds that his son kept medical staff entertained with jokes during his stay. “[Mariah] would stay in the hospital overnight to support him. Nick and Mariah are really good for one another – they have so much in common and can make the other one laugh. So they managed to cope even though Nick was pretty sick. But he is glad to be home now and his whole family is pleased about that also.”
As for the couple’s children, the proud grandpa gushes, “They are absolutely beautiful babies. They are both doing great and they are a total mix of their parents. They both share Nick and Mariah’s spirit and energy levels. They are beautiful and it is a joy and blessing to see them change and grow constantly.”
