The twin daughter and son of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their birthday on Sunday, with his and hers individual cakes and sweet messages from both their parents on social media.

“I can’t believe it’s been six years since you two came into this world to the live version of Fantasy.. ‘the applause!!!’ ” Carey captioned a 2011 photo of herself holding “Dem Babies” when they were just newborns.

“I love you both more each day,” added the proud mother of two. “You are the light of my life ❤❤ #Supernatural #HappyBirthday #RocnRoe.”

Cannon — also a new dad to son Golden, 9 weeks — used Instagram to send the twins well wishes too, posting a current photo of Roc and Roe in front of elaborate matching Mickey and Minnie Mouse cakes at Disneyland.

The father of three also shared a second snap of the now-6-year-olds when they were tiny tots, outfitted in matching “DEM BABIES” onesies and Air Jordan beanies.

“Seems like I just took this picture the other day!! Somebody stop the time from flying by … ” he captioned the throwback post.

Cannon posted two more shots to celebrate his older children individually: one of his “Queen” Monroe as a baby, wearing a pretty flower crown, and an ethereal black-and-white photo of her brother.

“This dude is a Force to be reckoned with! A real rock star! Mr. Moroccan Scott Cannon Happy 6th Birthday!” Cannon wrote alongside his son’s tribute.
