Mariah Carey is on cloud nine!
Between her shiny, new engagement ring from beau James Packer to prepping for the next round of her Las Vegas residency, we can't blame MiMi for being all smiles lately.
Despite the diva's infectious happiness, it appears as though she's not ready to dish everything about her life to her kiddos Monroe and Moroccan.
"I haven't talked to them about it completely because they are so young so they don't really understand things yet so you have to go slowly and explain things and always make sure they know that this is only going to be good for them. Their lives are not going to change."
Well, they're going to change a little. We mean, Nick Cannon's youngsters are about to have a new step-dad!
"For me, as long as we are together and they have a great relationship with their dad, then that's great. It's good. And they are great."
Well that's good to hear! Not to mention, the Nickelodeon alum doesn't seem too fazed by his former flames' engagement as he recently sent the couple his well wishes. Perhaps, he can help break the news??
Still, it looks as though both Nick and Mariah know how to coparent their children as Mariah concluded:
"Between Nick and what he does for them and then what I do for them, I just think please don't let these kids be spoiled. I have to reel it in."
HA! Regardless, we're more than excited to see what the 45-year-old puts Moroccan and Monroe in for her wedding.
We can't be the only ones, right?
