Mariah Carey’s 12-year-old twins are following in their mother’s footsteps by sharing the spotlight with her this holiday season. The twins are not only featured in a new Children’s Place holiday ad campaign with Carey, but they are also accompanying her on her Merry Christmas One and All! tour. In addition, Carey revealed in a recent interview with Access that her twins will be joining her on stage for her upcoming Billboard Music Awards performance.
“I love it. I love seeing them stepping into this performance space, this music space, and the fact that they’re eager to do it, that’s on them,” she told the popular entertainment news outlet.
Carey continued, “I never say ‘you guys gotta do this,’ you know? It’s whatever they want to do and they’re rehearsing for it and going for it and really working hard, so that’s impressive to me.”
If you remember, the “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer joked, telling Good Morning America host Juju Chang in an exclusive interview that her daughter has a more stringent rehearsal work ethic than she does.
“I think my daughter is rehearsing more than me so I think she might have it together a little more than I do!”
The “Emotions” singer went on to say that her daughter does indeed seem to have inherited her trademark “octave whistle,” but that she has to “play with it.”
“I think she kind of has it, I think she just has to play with it.”
Although Carey is happy that Monroe and Moroccan are following in her footsteps, she previously told People Magazine that she is simply just “enjoying seeing them grow.”
“They’re good, nice kids. They’re kind-hearted people, and I really enjoy being around them and watching them grow up into the people that they’re ultimately going to become.”
Make sure to tune-in and check out Mariah, Monroe, and Moroccan on the Billboard Music Awards on November 19 at 7 pm CST. This year, the awards will not air be televised on television stations.
