How Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey Are Handling the Holidays Post-Split
The America's Got Talent host confirmed his split on Good Morning America
Cannon, 34, appeared on Good Morning America on Monday, and though he confirmed the couple’s separation, he went on to say that he and Carey won’t let their split take a toll on their 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, when it comes to Christmas.
“We’ll forever be family,” the America’s Got Talent host said. “We’re there for our children, and are making them the number one priority and understanding that they’re loved and can have an amazing holiday.”
While Carey has been “trying to keep it together,” Cannon has been focusing on staying positive.
“Ultimately, I would think that is what life is all about, to try to pursue happiness, and I try to wake up and take each day with a grain of salt, and say, ‘How can I be happy today?'” he recently told PEOPLE, though he said in November that he was not ready to date.
