Already embarrassed by the parents? Mariah Carey's twins pose in awkward photo
IT'S normally not until their teens when kids become embarrassed by their parents - but Mariah Carey's twins seem to be ahead of the curve.
Monroe and Moroccan were celebrating their third birthday with their parents.
However in a snap posted to Instagram by Nick Cannon, the twins look mortified to be close to their celebrity parents.
He said: "Today was amazing! Happy Birthday to my greatest blessings in the world and Happy Anniversary to the beautiful woman who gave them to me!"
Not only was the day the twins' birthday, but it was also Mariah and husband Nick Cannon's sixth wedding anniversary.
The duo mark the occasion every year by renewing their wedding vows.
44-year-old Mariah meanwhile announced the release of her new album, 'Me. I Am Mariah' on sale from May 27th.
She recently had to deny rumours she was hanging up her microphone for good.
"I will always make music," she said. "When I said it could be my last, that's because tomorrow's not promised to anyone.''
The US singer said she wants her next album to be a ''body of work'' instead of a few hit singles.
''You would think I would be all about the singles-driven situation," she said. "And I am in a way, but with this particular album I want my fans to hear it as a body of work.
''This is my life since we last left off. Just picture a dot dot dot, and then here's the album.''
