We're pretty skeptical of all celebrity romances around here, especially those that result in spontaneous weddings around the same time that the celebrities in question have albums and movies to promote. Mariah Carey's high-speed courtship and subsequent marriage to Nick Cannon seems like the ultimate PR ploy, but somehow, we're starting to believe that maybe these two really are in love.
After we broke the news of their I Do's, People followed up with more details of their intimate spring wedding in the Bahamas. The groom wore Balenciaga, the bride was in an off-white Nile Cmylo dress and Louboutin heels ("I can wear high heels with Nick because he's tall. Flats are not in my repertoire," she says), and the surprise wedding of the year may not have been as impromptu as we thought:
Nick on their whirlwind affair: "It was a love-at-first-sight thing. Since we’ve been together, we’ve been inseparable."
Mariah on how friends knew they were getting serious: "One thing (few people) knew was we got tattoos a few weeks earlier. So anyone who saw my ("Mrs. Cannon") tattoo wasn’t surprised. To me rings are special and exciting, but tattoos mean more than anything. They’re forever and ever."
Nick on their connection: "From the first time we sat down to discuss the video at the Beverly Hills Hotel, we connected. … I was able to be myself with her. We are both eternally 12 years old."
Mariah on plans to have kids: "It’s part of the whole purpose of getting married. I'd just want our children to have the best childhood and upbringing they possibly could."
