*Dem Babies have made their music video debut in the latest video from their mama Mariah Carey.
Eight-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, join their daddy Nick Cannon in the footage for “When Christmas Comes,” her duet with John Legend.
The video – much of which has been shot in a vintage, grainy Super-8 style, to look like an intimate home recording – shows the twins, inter-spliced with footage from old “Peanuts” cartoons and scenes of her singing to a family gathering, accompanied by John Legend on piano
The track ‘When Christmas Comes’ was originally recorded for Mariah’s 2010 album “Merry Christmas II You,” but the singer decided to re-record it as a duet with Legend.
*Three generations of Mariah Carey’s family will be represented on her upcoming ABC Christmas special, as the pregnant singer will be joined on camera by her mother, Patricia.
“Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas to You,” set to air Dec. 13 (9 p.m. ET), was taped at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles and features the singer, in a black dress, belting songs from her new album, “Merry Christmas II You.”
Carey, 41, is expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon.
*It’s not even Halloween yet, and Mariah Carey wants you thinking about Christmas music – specifically, her Nov. 2 release “Merry Christmas II You.”
As previously reported, the follow up to her 1994 holiday album includes four original songs written by Carey, including “Oh Santa!”, the album’s first single. [Listen below.]
Jingling bells and a plea to Santa open the upbeat, festive track that has Carey wishing that St. Nick will “bring me back my baby” for Christmas.
“Merry Christmas II You” also features a new recording of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and some traditional holiday tunes, including “The First Noel,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.”
