Like mother, like daughter.
Monroe Carey, Mariah Carey’s 11-year-old daughter, joined her mother on stage for their first-ever duet, demonstrating that she is already following in her mother’s footsteps.
The music queen, 52, invited the preteen to sing “Away in a Manger” with her at her “Merry Christmas to All” concert in Toronto.
The unofficial “Queen of Christmas,” who shares Monroe and her twin brother Moroccan with her ex-husband Nick Cannon, performed at the Scotiabank Arena alongside her mini-me.
The two even wore identical white ballgowns.
Monroe donned a tutu-style skirt and a sparkling white bodice with cap sleeves, whereas Mariah wore a dress with a jeweled bodice and a voluminous tulle skirt, which she complemented with a tiara.
“This is my little girl. Eleven years ago, I received the greatest present,” the Grammy-winning artist told the audience.
“I don’t celebrate birthdays, but the day I was born was the greatest present ever. This is our first duet,” she continued, kissing her daughter as she exited the stage.
This was the first of four special Christmas performances by Mariah. On Sunday, she will perform in Toronto before travelling to the historic Madison Square Garden in New York for two gigs the following week.
Meanwhile, Monoe’s father is expecting his second child with Alyssa Scott, which will make him a parent of 12 children.
Scott, 29 years old, turned to social media on Friday to inform her admirers that her due date was imminent.
“Quick bumpdate – still pregnant,” she stated in an Instagram Story video.
“I am unable to believe… This infant will be quite large. Send some delivery energy boys .”
The model announced in October that she was expecting her third child, and the “Wild N Out” actor confirmed fatherhood the following month.
In June of 2021, the couple welcomed a boy named Zen. However, the child lost his battle with brain cancer in December of that year.
Earlier this month, on the first anniversary of his passing, Cannon penned a heartfelt eulogy for his late son.
“I’ve been tossing and turning all night, and despite the fact that I know I need sleep, I was unable to sleep at all last night. I cannot believe it has already been a year since the most difficult day of my life,” he wrote. Such a tragic anniversary.
The actor said, “Losing a child is the heaviest, darkest, and most depressing event I will never recover from.” I repress a mixture of guilt, grief, and sorrow every day.
Cannon has already had four children this year, including a 5-month-old son named Legendary with Bre Tiesi and a 2-month-old daughter named Onyx with Lanisha Cole, followed by a 2-month-old son named Rise with model Brittany Bell. He also welcomed his 1-month-old daughter Beautiful with Abby De La Rosa.
The “Drumline” actor is also the father of Moroccan and Monroe with Carey, with whom he separated in 2014, as well as Golden, 5, and Powerful, 1, with Bell, and Zion and Zillion, 1, with De La Rosa.
