Mariah Carey, son Moroccan Scott Cannon and daughter Monroe Cannon arrive at the premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures' 'The LEGO Batman Movie' at Regency Village Theatre on Feb. 4, 2017 in Westwood, Calif. 

Mariah Carey's kids are already as fabulous and musically inclined as she is.

The icon dropped by Live with Kelly and Ryan on Wednesday (Nov. 21) following the release of her latest album, Caution, where she talked about how her twins, 7-year-old Moroccan and Monroe, have been listening to music literally since birth. 

She recalled making a playlist for the delivery room. "I made a playlist. They came out to 'Fantasy,' the live version from Madison Square Garden with the applause."

"I wanted them to feel the applause when they were first born," she continued. The songstress also mentioned that both her kids are interested in music, though Moroccan already thinks he wants to take on being a comedian. Watch below.
