When did Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon date?

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were first linked in early 2008.

The couple first met at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, and in 2008 Cannon starred in Carey’s music video “Bye Bye.”

After less than two months of dating, Carey and Cannon tied the knot in a private ceremony in the Bahamas.

The America’s Got Talent host confirmed his split from Carey on Good Morning America in December.

“We’ll be family forever,” Cannon said on the show. “We are there for our children and make them our top priority and understand that they can be loved and have an amazing holiday.”

Their divorce was finalized in November 2016.

How many children do Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have together?

Carey and Cannon share a pair of twins – son, Moroccan Scott, and daughter, Monroe.

The singer and TV presenter welcomed their children back in 2011.

“They are a lot, but they give me so much love back. I wouldn’t be the same person without her,” Carey told PEOPLE of her 11-year-old.

“I think Nick and I did pretty well as co-parents, staying friends so we could talk.”

Humiliating their children also seems to play a big part in the couple’s shared parenting style.

“I want my kids to understand that not every kid is as lucky as they are,” Cannon told PEOPLE in 2012.

Carey said the same thing in 2019: “It’s hard, but I try to keep them grounded so they don’t think it’s all just going to be handed to them.”

Cannon currently has 11 children who he shares with a number of baby moms.

What did Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon say about each other?

In 2020, Carey released her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey – in which she discussed her marriage to Cannon.

“He was a good guy. He was faith based. He was ambitious,” she wrote. “He’s been in the entertainment industry for a long time, so he understood the madness. He took care of me.”

She added, “Honestly, I think Nick and I could have worked it out between the two of us, but egos and emotions have flared up (which can lead to a lot of billable legal hours, and ultimately it did).

“It was hard. We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family. We will always be family and we make it work.”

In July 2022, Cannon opened up about his former marriage on The Hottee Talk Show podcast, saying, “I think because I’m a true romantic, I really believe in love and I allow the capsules of love to be where they are Lie. I’m not a timeline guy,” he said. “I’ll never have a love like I had with Mariah.”

He even added that he thought Carey’s boyfriend Bryan Tanaka was “great with my kids.”
