The twin boys are Cannon’s second set of twins; he and his ex-wife, singer Mariah Carey, have a set of twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe. He also has a three-year-old son, Golden, and a daughter, Powerful Queen, with Brittany Bell

In April, De La Rosa announced that she and the host of The Masked Singer were expecting the twins in a maternity photo shoot on Instagram that has since been deleted. 

According to People magazine, she wrote at the time, “I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God gives you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy. That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose.”

“Your Dad & I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support,” she added. “No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you – is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both.” 

Cannon is expecting his seventh child with model Alyssa Scott.
