Mariah Carey's twins will be a boy and a girl



rsz_tbd-mariahcarey020311.jpgAfter years of trying to get pregnant, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have good news: Their twins are a boy and a girl. That means they can quit trying now, since they'll be getting a whole set in one shot.

"Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything genderneutral because I didn't want to impose an identity on them too soon," Mariah tells Life & Style. "There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumors about them being two boys or two girls -- but nobody guessed this!"

Now the big contest will be guessing their names. We'll take a page from our childhood and say Scooter and Skeeter. We're pretty sure Mimi like Muppet Babies back in the day, too.
