Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's marriage may be on the way to being over, but their split hasn't affected their twins at all, according to Nick.
Appearing on Friday's Meredith Vieira Show, Nick said of twins Moroccan and Monroe -- affectionately referred to as "dem babies" -- "They're just happy. They love mommy. They love daddy." That's because, as Nick explained, the kids are used to one of their parents or the other being gone for long periods of time.
"We have always been people who have been on the go, coming and going, their life hasn't changed one bit," Nick told Vieira. "We spend holidays together, we do everything that we are supposed to do together as a family."
Nick also decried the media's coverage of his and Mariah's marital issues, saying, "You know, the media, they can say whatever they want to say and obviously, because you are not giving them anything...they kind of create all these stories and make it way worse than it actually is."
Asked to name a particular rumor that irks him, Nick said, "You know what I heard the other day? I heard that there's a family dispute over our eight dogs!" He added that what's needed now is for him and Mariah to ignore the distractions and just be "focused on family and what's right and getting through these times and doing what's right for the kids, so that's just where we are."
The twins are currently with Mariah as she tours Asia.
