The 45-year-old songstress has sold over 200 million albums and claimed 18 number one singles in the United States since her debut into the music industry in 1988.

And on Wednesday the Dreamlover singer was finally awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where she will be immortalised forever in cement on the sidewalk alongside the names of the entertainment industry’s most revered creatives.

But it wasn't all about Mariah as her four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-husband Nick Cannon, adorably climbed all over their mother during her big moment.

In one show, Moroccan is cuddling her leg and holding her neck while his sister tries to get in on the action, all the while Mariah is grinning for the cameras.

The energetic duo were later removed from their mother's side, but posed again with her just moments later for a group shot.

“They just shut down Hollywood Boulevard because you all came out today! Thank you #lambs #lambily !! #hollywoodwalkoffame (sic),” Mariah wrote on her Twitter account Wednesday, infusing the message with a heart-eyed emoji and a star glyph.

But the contract has not yet been put in place, leaving Lee in fear over upsetting his managers.

"I'm already in trouble with my publicist,” he joked.

Empire is Lee’s hit Fox network TV show, which stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard.

It seems Mariah is celebrating her huge Walk of Fame career feat in a big way, as she chowed down on a prime piece of sirloin to honour the acknowledgement.

“#celebrating in style with good friends and great food @eatstk @STKLosAngeles #moments,(sic)” she wrote on Twitter, attaching a picture of herself beside a super happy chef.
