Nick Cannon overjoyed as twins start talking

Nick Cannon has spoken of his joy after hearing his baby twins utter their first words.

The rapper/actor is father to seven-month-old Moroccan and Monroe with his pop superstar wife Mariah Carey, and he has revealed the babies are already talking.

He tells Us Weekly, "They say words, they do! Not too many words. Just mamma, dadda, and babba. That's it!"

Nick Cannon adds, "(Fatherhood) has probably made me prioritise my life better. Spend more time on the things that actually matter in the world (rather) than just trying to be too frivolous. (I) know that it's a ticking clock and (my) kids are growing every single day."
