The insider explains how the pair found out: "They didn't want to know, but when they went to the doctor they wanted to make sure the babies were healthy, and then asked."

And now? "They are so excited! They are busy decorating the nurseries [in their L.A. and NYC homes] and using neutral colors now."

Adds the source: "Those kids will have everything. Mariah and Nick are ecstatic. One of each! It's a dream come true."

Cannon, 30, confirmed in December that wife Carey, 40, was carrying twins (They first broke the news to President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at a holiday event in Washington, D.C.)

The first-time parents opened up to Us Weekly in November about their struggle to conceive following a heartbreaking miscarriage. "We definitely cried" upon learning of her successful pregnancy, Cannon told Us. "We still cry all the time. It's an emotional journey."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
