Mariah Carey is keeping mum on her engagement around the kids.

Mariah told E! News she has not yet told her four year old twins Monroe Cannon and Moroccan Scott Cannon about her engagement to James Packer, 48.

“I haven’t talked to them about it completely because they are so young so they don’t really understand things yet.”

“So you have to go slowly and explain things and always make sure they know that this is only going to be good for them. Their lives are not going to change.”

She continued, “For me, as long as we are together and they have a great relationship with their dad, then that’s great. It’s good. And they are great.”

Mariah is just delighted to see her kids having “so much fun” with both mummy and daddy.

“Between Nick and what he does for them and then what I do for them, I just think please don’t let these kids be spoiled,” she joked with E! News. “I have to reel it in.”

  • It’s good that she’s sheltering them in a way. They are still too young to understand these things.
    Boy are they SUPER cute!!!


  • I agree that you have to explain things to kids carefully, and sometimes slowly.

    • yes and it is stability and getting them used to the big changes


  • They look so happy and gorgeous.!


  • It must be hard to date with kids! What point to you let them in and introduce the person but still protect their hearts


  • yeah i am sure she will do what is right for her family


  • Interesting. I hope she tells them soon before they hear it elsewhere


  • Interesting, I imagine it would be hard to hide with such a public profile.


  • Can understand her wanting to take her time to explain the situation. Hopefully the kids don\’t read the news!


  • Bit strange not to tell the kids. Even though they are young there are still ways of telling them so that they understand. Cute kids though.


  • It seems pretty strange not to have told the kids about this! Hope she finds long term happiness.


  • Well, she doesn’t want to tell them. But what if they hear it in the news? Wouldn’t that be worst?


  • Her kids are very cute, hope it works out for them all.


  • I didn’t even know she was dating him let alone engaged. I’m behind with the times lol
