Now that the world’s longest pregnancy ever has come to an end, and Mariah and Gooftroop are the proud parents of a son and daughter, we are now on “what are dem babies’ names?” watch.
And Mariah is happily feeding into it.
Promising to reveal all soon, the singer first teased her fans.
“So we r bout 2 reveal the actual names and b4 we tell em 2 our friends etc.,” she Tweeted. “I had 2 C if any of the #lambily wanted 2 guess!!!”
Next, the singer – who calls her ardent fans “lambs” – prodded the public to throw out some good guesses.
“The game continues!!!! This crew is a lil slow..lil slow…! Coming up next-the initials…I love the #lambily!!!!” she Tweeted.
Finally, Carey, 42, revealed one clue about the names: “both begin w/M’s!!!! ”
There’s still no word on what her baby boy and baby girl will be called, but one Tweet-happy fan was quick with a few guesses, suggesting, “Michaela (girl) & Mandarin (boy)/ Miriam (girl) & Mauritius (boy)/Marjorie (girl) & Marauder (boy)/Moesha (girl) & Maui (boy).”
Before all the subterfuge, Carey offered a heartfelt message to her fans, Tweeting, “I wish I could personally thank all those around the world who continue 2 send congrats+prayers for #dembabies! They’re doing great and they are the most incredible gifts we could ever have imagined.
Both names begin with an M? Eminem is gonna have a field day with this one. Uh let’s guess — Marshall and Marsha! Just kidding…
We can’t front: the love and excitement is kind of contagious. Congrats again to Nick and Mariah.
