Wife Mariah Carey maybe a superstar onstage but Nick Cannon says he’s front and center when it comes to disciplining twins Monroe and Moroccan, Cannon told People. At 21 months, the twins are heading toward the terrible twos, but daddy’s tough approach to discipline is keeping them in check.
The doting dad calls himself a “stern father.” “They try [misbehaving] with other people because everyone gives them so much attention,” he explained, “but when it comes to my wife and I, we only have to say something once.” Cannon said more often than not, his loud, deep voice is what keeps the kids paying attention.
But it’s not like he doesn’t have fun with his little ones. Cannon says his kids have inherited his sweet tooth, and Moroccan’s is the biggest of them all. He’s been known to take advantage of the family’s candy store in their Los Angeles home. Cannon explained, “We have a candy store inside of our L.A. house, and the basketball court is beneath it. My son tricks me. He’ll say ‘basketball,’ and then every time, when we walk to the court, he runs to the straight to the candy and takes a handful.” Doesn’t sound too stern to us!
