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.

    Nick is right you can't babysit your own kids/stepkids it's called being a responsible parent. nobody latched on to Messa Newman when she said the same thing when her now nearly grown sons were each Roc & Roe's age though it's a totally different cenario because she raised her kids on the same property she grew up on right next door to her parents so one set of grandparents was always seconds away if needed and those boys have been very protective of their grandmother Joanne since their grandfather Paul passed away four years ago. after being married to him for nearly 2/3 of her life the separation was a painful adjustment
