The truth is out! Nick Cannon opens up in an interview with In Touch about his former wife, Mariah Carey, and why he still thinks she is amazing.

“People don’t know she is such a nourishing and giving individual,” the star of MTV’s Wild ’N Out, 37, tells In Touch of Mariah, 48, with whom he shares twins Moroccan and Monroe, 6. (Nick also has a son, Golden “Sagon,” 11 months, with his beauty queen ex Brittany Bell, 30.)

“I have never seen someone so giving. [Mariah] remembers everyone’s birthday, favorite color — she’s like one of those types of people, always sending cakes, flowers and balloons.” When asked if he would ever consider getting back together with Mariah, he simply replies, “in my dreams, maybe!”

“She’s an amazing, outstanding, top-of-the-line mother,” Nick adds. “It’s like Mary Poppins is your mom.” And how does he feel about Mariah and her current boyfriend, Bryan? “Oh, I always make funny jabs at them! It’s hilarious to me [that they’re together]. They’re enjoying each other, having fun. I’m super cool with him, but I still think it’s funny!”

And while Nick says he “one hundred percent” wants more kids, he also says he will never marry again. “To me, marriage is a business that society controls, paperwork, which can get in the way. Love shouldn’t be bound.”
