Who is Monroe Cannon?

Monroe Cannon Carey was born under the zodiac sign of Taurus on 30 April 2011, in Santa Monica, California USA; she holds American nationality and her ethnicity is of mixed Irish, Venezuelan, and African-American descent. She – and her twin brother Moroccan – are perhaps only known as the daughter and son of Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey; Monroe got her name from her mother’s favorite actress Marylin Monroe, and her brother got his name because of the room where Nick proposed to Mariah was decorated in the Moroccan style.


Monroe is 10 years old, and is attending an elementary school; she is also known as a voice actor, having voiced the character Michelle in the 2017 animated movie “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. Monroe had already made an appearance in her mother’s show “Mariah’s World” in 2016.

Although she lives with her mother and brother, she has a special bond with her father, but sometimes Mariah thinks that he exaggerates with his gifts – for the twin’s tenth birthday he bought them IPads, even though Mariah said that they were too young to have it.

Monroe has curly brown hair and brown eyes, weighs around 60lbs (28kgs) and is 3ft 9ins (1.2m) tall.

Mariah married Tommy Mottola, an American music producer, on 5 June 1993 at Saint Thomas Church, New York City; it seems that Tommy had a controlling nature, which Mariah didn’t tolerate, so they announced their divorce on 30 May 1997, finalized on 2 December 2000.

In August 2014, Nick stated that they’d separated, and on 2 December 2014 he filed for divorce, which was finalized in 2016; Mariah in her memoirs wrote the reason for their divorce, saying ‘Making the necessary adult adjustments to being working parents in entertainment took its toll on our relationship, and the end of our marriage came fast, as it began’.

She dated Australian billionaire James Douglas Packer, businessman and investor from Sydney; the two announced their engagement on 21 January 2016, but in October she started dating choreographer Bryan Tanaka, so it was clear that the engagement with James was called off. Although she is now officially single, rumors and some photos are showing that she seems to be still in a relationship with Bryan.
