Cannon Bring Twins on
Aussie Animal
Adventure (PHOTO)

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are firm believers in working hard to play hard!

During the family’s recent trip to Australia, where Mariah performed several shows over the course of one week, the new parents took their 18-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, to see some animals down under!

On the twins’ website,, the couple shared several photos of their Aussie adventure, including snapshots of Mariah with a Koala Bear, the foursome on an open-car train ride and Nick getting up close and personal with a wild (and rather large!) bird.

EXCLUSIVE: Nick's the Reason I Became a Mom

In perhaps the cutest shot of the batch, Mariah holds Roc and Nick carries Roe as the tots reach out to touch a spiky, little echidna.

“Family Fun at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia,” Mariah captioned the set of pics.

Not only did the family play with critters on their vacay, but they also toured the Great Barrier Reef and sailed the open waters on a yacht. The fraternal duo also took the stage to join their mom in the spotlight at her concert...something the American Idol judge never thought would happen.

“I never thought I’d experience motherhood,” Mariah recently told In Touch “My career was my life.” But all that changed when she met Nick. “When you find the right person, you [want to] go through it... Every moment is incredible."
