He is one busy man!
Perezzers recently sat down to chat with Nick Cannon. And, of course, we talked about Mariah - a lot!
We also chatted about his radio show (which Perez calls into every morning), the new season of America's Got Talent, his standup career, his music career, dem babies and a bunch more.
Read some highlights from our interview…. after the jump.
And watch our chat in full (above)!
Perez Hilton: What's it been like being a dad?
Nick Cannon: Man, it's hard to leave the house honestly. I mean, as much as I love what I do and the hustle when I get home and I get home and I see those two little faces looking up at me that look like my face, it's like, it's unbelievable. It kind of gives you a whole new inspiration and whole new reason to kind of get out there and do it everyday.
Perez Hilton: What surprised you the most about the twins or having children?
Nick Cannon: The fact that they have personalities.
Perez Hilton: And they’re like four months old, three months, two months old?
Nick Cannon: One month.
Perez Hilton: One month wow. They already have personalities?
Nick Cannon: Yeah, personalities. And it's crazy because you can see like my son is definitely more like me. He's like chill, laid back –
Perez Hilton: At one month?
Nick Cannon: Yeah. And but my daughter is, that's her mothers child. Like she is like a diva. She sleeps like this with her hands. She's like, when she wants something, she's instantly crying letting you know likes she's going to be a little handful.
Perez Hilton: And have there been talks? Do you want to have even more?
Nick Cannon: [See video for answer]
Perez Hilton: Now you and Mariah have been together I think four years now?
Nick Cannon: Yeah, man, going on four years.

Nick Cannon: Absolutely.
Perez Hilton: You saw each other every single day?
Nick Cannon: Well not — we didn’t see each other because you know I was in LA and she was in New York most of the time. But it was one of those things where we were inseparable to a point where when I'm — I always knew I was going to be in love with Mariah Carey.
Perez Hilton: Really?
Nick Cannon: She was my celebrity crush since I was a kid.
Perez Hilton: Really?
Nick Cannon: So I was like when I get the opportunity, I'm going to just let her know how I feel and just go hard, just — and I went hard and then from that point she connected and we –

Nick Cannon: Yeah. And it was just –
Perez Hilton: It was just like the right time.
Nick Cannon: When we weren’t there we were on the phone all the time. It was just like, it was real so –
Perez Hilton: You had long phone calls like old school?
Nick Cannon: Six hours on the phone. Like who do you talk to for six hours? What do you talk about for six hours? That's like — it was like that junior high love.
Perez Hilton: What do you think is the secret to proving to people, like we're still together four years later, we're making it work?
Nick Cannon: [See answer in video.]
Perez Hilton: Festive. That's a very Mariah word.
Nick Cannon: We just like to have fun. Like outside of everything else, if we cant have a good time doing it, then why do it.
