Gotham Gossipist: Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon In No Rush To Show Off Newborn Twins

By Kimberly Rae Miller

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s been almost two months since Mariah Carey gave birth to her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, and still no one’s seen the Carey-Cannon cuties.  What’s up with that?

Apparently Mom and Dad are on the hunt for the most tasteful opportunity to showcase their offspring.  On his 92.3 Now Radio show, Nick Cannon expressed how totally strange it is to be selling photos of his kids.  The pictures are expected to bring in about $200,000.  Certainly more than most people make in a year, but millions less than the $14 million that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie brought in for their twins.

A source close to Cannon and Carey told Page Six that it’s not about the money for the couple.

“Mariah and Nick are more concerned with doing the right thing than going to the highest bidder,”  the source said, while adding that Mariah and Nick have received bids from a number of magazines, including People and OK!

So, why sell them at all if you’re uncomfortable with it?  The money. The truth behind all those celebrity baby photo shoots may have more to do with stopping the paparazzi than cashing in for famous couples.  Paparazzi make major bucks for getting the first shots of famous babies. Better that money go toward the college fund, than some creep with an ultra-zoom lens.

All I’m saying is that I’ve never heard of a ‘not tasteful’ baby picture.  Bring on the cuteness.

    Yes, Mariah & NIck, hold out Roc &Roe are worth more than 200,000 iin pictures.
    So if the magazines want their pictures charge them. They gave millions to the other folks so why not yours? Love you & Nick forever, hang loose and stay tough.

    GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS!!

    WOW I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF HERS AND HIS FOR YEARS AND YEARS .. WE DON;T CARE HOWMUCH MONEY THEY WILL GET FOR THE PHOTOS WE JUST WANT TO SEE THE BABIES .. BEINGS I HAVE THREE KIDS MY SELF .. I WAS SO EXCITED TO SHOW PEOPLE WHAT MY KIDS LOOKED LIKE .. THIS SHOULD BE A PROUD MONENT FOR THEM AND THEY SHOULD AT LEAST SHOW PHOTOS OF THE KIDS TO THEIR FANS THEY ARE EXCITED TOO.

    they have a right to wait to release the pics it’s their kids that they struggled to have and want to enjoy privately for a bit longer. but she’s been in the business long enough to know that the fans are clamoring to see how adorable Roc & Roe are and if pics aren’t relased some fans will boycott anything she does in protest. the magazines only offering 200k is a slap in the face Roc and Roe should’ve at least been able to get the 2.6 million Max & Emme Muniz got in March 2008 and we’ll probably see them when she’s on HSN again next month as tjeu ,ogjt dp ot from the house in LA again because she probably doesn’t want to travel with them yet
