Nick Cannon talks wife Mariah Carey's 'American Idol' gig.
Nick Cannon says that despite Mariah Carey’s new gig as a judge on American Idol, she hasn’t had trouble incorporating mommy time into her jam-packed schedule.

“It’s not tough. That’s Mariah Carey!” the 32-year-old told Celebuzz exclusively. “[She’s] superwoman; she can do it all.”

Cannon, who was on hand Wednesday at Maxim and Rock the Vote party to celebrate the launch of Assassin’s Creed III in Los Angeles, also revealed his favorite parts of watching the couple’s twins grow up.

“Hearing them talk, seeing them walk, all that stuff,” he beamed of Moroccan and Monroe, affectionately known as “dem babies.”

Another reason he’s glad to be a dad: “Being able to love someone unconditionally and have someone love you back.”

But with Carey’s Idol duties, who’s looking after dem babies? The America’s Got Talent host says he’s picking up the slack but refuses to call himself a babysitter.

“You can’t babysit your own children,” Cannon said. “I keep telling people that! They’re your children. You’re not a babysitter. But yeah, we switch off as we need to.”

It looks like these two are still very much in the honeymoon phase.
