Nick Cannon does not want 4 1/2 months old twins Morrocan and Monroe, with wife Mariah Carey to be in show business.
The ‘America’s Got Talent Host’ tells PEOPLE,
“I just want them to strive for something greater than entertainment. I’m one of those believers in teachers, professors, heart surgeons. That’s what I’m rooting for. If I could get a scientist, that’d be amazing.”
And although he would urge his children to following in his or wife’s footsteps he admits they’re understanding of each other’s careers.
“My wife is so understanding because she’s just as busy and just as focused as I am, so it’s kind of like the perfect match,” he says. “I love my career and I love being in entertainment, so it never really feels like an occupation.”
But if he had to choose Cannon says, “Being a father and being a husband comes first.”
“Everybody knows I’m obsessed with my wife,” he gushes. “I’m married to Mariah Carey. It doesn’t get better than that. I’d be an idiot to do anything wrong. I worship my wife. Have you seen my back? My back says ‘Mariah Forever.’ “
Well, what can we say the man loves his wife. And yes, that tattoo is huge!
