'Goddess' Mariah Carey

'Goddess' Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's children think she's a "goddess".

The 'Without You' hitmaker's ex-husband Nick Cannon - with whom she has four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe - has revealed the two kids think their mother is an "angel" and that their father is "silly".

Speaking on IMDB Asks, he said: "They get to see [Mariah] in every aspect, travel the world and on the stage. Her ability to sing right there on the spot for them.

"Mommy is an angel, a goddess to them and Daddy's silly. It's kind of cool for them to watch how they embrace entertainment. It's almost something that's very a matter of fact to them."

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old television personality previously insisted he will "always be family" with the 45-year-old singer.

He shared: "It's all about unconditional love. And knowing because they were so young, this is what they know: They know Mommy and Daddy still love each other, but more importantly they love us. It's family. We'll always be family."

Nick also admitted Mariah - who is now dating billionaire James Packer - is still the "love of [his] life" and always will be.

He added: "It's one of those things, I'm a hopeless romantic too. Through this learning process, you never say never. To me one thing I know, that will always be the love of my life, always be my family and that's never going to change.

"It's extremely disappointing when you see that people just want to perpetuate negativity when there is no negativity even involved."
