Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon celebrated their third wedding anniversary today by becoming parents to a baby girl and boy.

Carey's representative, Cindi Berger, confirmed the twins' arrival, saying the superstar delivered at 12:07 pm EDT at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles.

Berger says the baby girl was born first, weighing 5lbs 3oz and was 18 inches long; her brother was next, at 5lbs 6oz and was 19 inches.

Berger says the couple has not named the children yet.

Cannon drove Carey to the hospital in their Rolls-Royce Phantom. Berger said the 41-year-old Carey, who had gone through false labour, was calm, thinking that it was another false alarm.

Meanwhile, Cannon, 30, was so nervous he went to the wrong department at the hospital, and was guided to the maternity ward by a nurse.

Berger says they were listening to Carey's We Belong Together after the children were born.

Cannon tweeted this afternoon: 'My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!'

Prediction: Her husband Nick Cannon said they were expecting the twins to arrive 'any second' when he appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Wednesday
