Good for them, but why make it national news? There are many babies being born in the world. Let's also celebrate those.

@ robert--First of all, if someone does have to use IVF (spelled invitro, btw) then it's a last ditch effort at trying to become pregnant. How heartbreaking it must be for a couple to experience fertility problems....wealthy or not. Have a little compassion. Anyway, Mariah and Nick were open about the fact that she was on progesterone to maintain a pregnancy after miscarrying. Twins are more common the older you get. Besides, who cares how babies get here as long as it happens?

I can't wait to see "dem babies"! I'm glad she was able to carry them for so long, allowing for a healthy birth weight. I bet these are going to be some beautiful children. God bless them.

...WTFBTW...    

So they did not have these twins naturally then? i mean how can they possibly have 1 boy and 1 girl ''twin'' which is really rare, just because she is Mariah Carrey? Hummm fishy I would have thought these two were gonna have babies like any other human beings.

@WTFBTW~ Ummmm, no, when twins are one boy and one girl they are fraternal twins. They are not rare. They are the type of twins that "run in the family". Identical twins are rarer. And here's a surprise for you who knows so little, there are twins that are conceived and one gets absorbed. Just like what appeared to have happened with John Travolta and Kelly Preston. (Sometimes an absorbed twin, if it was fraternal, can even create an additional DNA signature in the surviving twin. It can appear that a mother isn't the mother to her own children.This is called kymerism.) Educate yourself! BTW my fraternal twins Dakota (boy) and Grace (girl) were "naturally occurring".
