    Carey and Cannon struggled to conceive children, enduring a miscarriage. They were told they were having twins about two months into the pregnancy, they said. "It was good news, but it was scary news at the same time, because then that also meant that it was a high-risk pregnancy," said Cannon.

    During the pregnancy Cannon read to the babies in utero, he told Walters. He and Carey also attached what they called a "belly boom box" to Carey's belly to play them music.

    Carey and Cannon found out around six months into the pregnancy that they were having a boy and a girl, they said. Cannon was "very excited" he was having a boy. "I would carry around the ultrasound picture and be like, You see that?! That's manhood,'" Cannon said. "He said it a little bit differently than that," Carey added.
