The singer and the television host welcomed their children back in 2011.

“They’re a lot, but they give me so much love in return. I wouldn’t be the same person without them,” Carey told PEOPLE about her 11 year olds.

“I think Nick and I have done pretty well in co-parenting, staying friends with each other so that we can talk.”

Humbling their children also seems to play a large part in the pair’s co-parenting style.

“I want my kids to understand that every child isn’t as fortunate as they are,” Cannon told PEOPLE in 2012.

Carey said the same in 2019: “It’s hard, but I try to keep them grounded so they don’t think everything is just handed to them.”

Cannon currently has 11 children, whom he shares with a number of baby mamas.

What have Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon said about each other?

In 2020, Carey released her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey – in which talked about her marriage to Cannon.

“He was a good guy. He was faith-based. He was ambitious,” she wrote. “He had been in the entertainment industry for a long time, so he understood the madness. He paid attention to me.”

She added: “Honestly, I think Nick and I could have worked it out between the two of us, but egos and emotions got inflamed (which can translate into many billable lawyer hours, and ultimately it did).

“It was tough. We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family. We will always be family, and we make it work.”

He even added that he thought Carey’s boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka, “is amazing with my kids.”
