Singer Mariah Carey wants you all to know that she is in control of every aspect of her life -- including her uterus.

Jokesters made Mariah's twins the butt of jokes for almost a year, saying she was carrying each child for 9 months each.

Well, Mariah had the last laugh when she finally gave her children permission to be born -- on the third anniversary of her wedding to entertainment mogul Nick Cannon.

Mariah, 42, and Nick, 30, welcomed a boy and a girl on Saturday, April 30, at 12:07 p.m. ET. in a Los Angeles area hospital. Nick reportedly drove Mariah to the hospital while she blasted music on the car radio.

According to People.com, the baby girl was born first, weighing 5 lbs. 3 oz., and was 18 inches long; her brother was next, at 5 lbs. 6 oz., and was 19 inches.

Berger tells PEOPLE "she's doing great" and they were listening to Carey's "We Belong Together" after the children were born. "I spoke to both of them and they are both completely overjoyed."

Asked if the birth was planned to coincide with her anniversary, she said: "No, not even Mariah could plan that."

"Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm. Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital and she very calm and the music was blasting," she added. "When they walked into the hospital, [Nick] was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward, and I said to her, 'that's right out of I Love Lucy,' and she laughed."

What type of parents will Mariah and Nick be? You already know the answer.

Expect to see those babies exploited in every shameful way possible for years to come. I feel sorry for those kids already.

In case you're one of the millions of Americans who slept soundly at 4 a.m. when Britain's Prince William took Kate Middleton to be his bride, here is a quick update.

Kate Middleton will now and forever be referred to as "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge" (unless a series of tragic deaths befalls members of the royal family, at which time she will be bestowed as Queen of England).

Kate, I mean, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, turned 29 on January 9th. She is the eldest of 3 children.

Kate, oops, I mean, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was given Princess Diana's engagement ring to have and to own. But her new hubby made it clear early on that he intends to go ringless.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge decided to do her own makeup because she wanted to add a little normalcy to the pomp and circumstance surrounding the wedding of the century.

Although she thought it was lame, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge practiced "the wave" for hours in the mirror until she got it right.

'Jumping The Broom' is a new film by director Salim Akil that celebrates the African tradition of jumping the broom to signify a marriage when it wasn't always legal for blacks to marry in the 18th century.

'Jumping The Broom', produced by Tracey Edmonds and Bishop T.D. Jakes, is a romantic comedy that explores today’s difficulty in abstaining from sex until marriage.

Marion "Pooch" Hall of BET's 'The Game' plays Ricky, the best friend of the groom, Jason (Laz Alonzo). And Romeo Miller ("Dancing With The Stars") plays Sebastian, the cousin of the bride, Sabrina (Paula Patton).

Problems crop up for Jason and Sabrina when their two families from opposite ends of the tracks clash on Martha’s Vineyard during their dream weekend wedding.

"Help me Jesus, that boy is fine!," says Shonda (Tasha Smith) after meeting Sebastian, who prefers "a more seasoned woman with a little more experience."

Later, Jason, Ricky, Sebastian and Malcolm (DeRay Davis) get together for an impromptu bachelor party before the wedding. Ricky, Malcolm and Sebastian each take opposing views of what it really means to be a man in this clip from the movie.

'Jumping The Broom' is in theaters May 6th.

They say every jump off has a secret past that she would like to keep hidden away forever. The more successful jump offs are able to bury their pasts under stacks and stacks of their new husband's money.

Apparently, Chris Bosh's new wife, Adrienne Williams, couldn't erase her past with Bosh's endless cash reserves.

Bosh refuses to even admit that he's a married man despite the overwhelming evidence that suggests otherwise (he's probably waiting to break the news gently to his other jump offs).

According to Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel, a marriage certificate, with both Bosh and Williams' names on it, is on file in Dade County. And I'm following Bosh's stylist on Twitter.com, who also confirmed that some sort of nuptials took place before the NBA playoffs.

Anyway, I wrote all that to say that Adrienne has been on the come-up since she was seven years old.

The young groupie is featured in a photo spread in a worn copy of Smooth magazine from 2006. Loyal reader Steve K. was kind enough to send me the link to her pics on HINcity.com.

"I love modeling. I've been doing it since age 12, and I've done pageants since I was seven" said Adrienne, who is originally from LA but honed her groupie skills in Atlanta.

"I've done every kind you can imagine," she said. "So whatever modeling steps I can take to get my name out there is good."

Every baller worth his salt in Atlanta knows who Chris Bosh's wife, Adrienne, is. She was a fixture in the VIPs at Vision and Velvet Room nightclubs back in the day. Every pro athlete has made eye contact with her at some point in time.

According to my sources, Adrienne was a very well-maintained groupie who spent all her available cash on Delta buddy passes to follow the professional teams from city to city. If you didn't have at least 6 zero's in your bank account, she wasn't hollering at you.

Bosh knew all of this, of course, but he still married her anyway. Maybe he thought he was saving her? Or maybe he knows that if he moved on, she would be the wife of another ball player, so it might as well be him, right?

See, even wealthy men who seem to have everything, battle self esteem issues too.

Here's more Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles in Paris pictures, because I know how much you love them. Bey and Jay were photographed taking a stroll after eating lunch today in Paris, France.

As you can see, Beyoncé read your comments about her Stepford wives outfit yesterday on all the blogs, so she switched things up a little bit with a cropped lambskin jacket over a denim shirt and khaki shorts. She accessorized her outfit with 6¼" Christian Louboutin Lady Daf Platform Mary Jane schoolgirl strap pumps ($995). Nice!

The new Columbia Pictures film 'Jumping the Broom' produced by Tracey Edmonds and Bishop T.D. Jakes is a romantic comedy that explores today's difficulty in abstaining from sex until marriage.

Bishop Jakes fuses religion and comedy to challenge the film's audiences to explore the option of abstinence before marriage.

The film asks the question how easy is it to abstain from sex until you jump the broom? And which guy would make you want to Jump The Broom?

Laz Alonso and Paula Patton play Jason Taylor and Sabrina Watson, a young couple who decide to spend the rest of their lives together in Holy matrimony. But when their two families from opposite ends of the tracks converge on Martha's Vineyard for their dream weekend wedding, problems crop up and threaten to derail the happy event.

After meeting with Bishop Jakes for a counseling session, Taylor makes the decision to abstain from sex until his marriage to Watson.

In addition to abstaining from sex, Watson has to deal with her parents (played by Angela Bassett and Brian Stokes Mitchell) who have problems in their own marriage and appear on the brink of divorce.

And Taylor faces pressure from his friends who scoff at the idea of abstaining from sex until marriage.

'Jumping The Broom' also stars Mike Epps, Loretta Devine, Meagan Good, Tasha Smith, DeRay Davis, Julie Bowen, Romeo Miller, Gary Dourdan, Pooch Hall, and Valarie Pettiford.

'Jumping The Broom' opens everywhere on May 6, 2011.

Burlesque singer Beyonce, 29, and her rapper hubby Jay Z, 41, jetted to Paris, France yesterday to escape the onslaught of criticism from those who heard her latest single, "Girls (Who Run The World)" which leaked online Monday. The track is so horrible that Gawker.com was prompted to title their post review, "Beyoncé's New Single Is All Kinds of Bad." In fact, all of Beyonce's ear-shattering singles -- except for "Halo" and "Hello" -- are all kinds of bad. It's a shame that it took so long for people to finally notice that the girl has limited talent.

Even though she's not a celebrity, paparazzi still snapped photos of Usher's ex wife Tameka Foster, 40, shopping in Miami, Florida with a friend yesterday. Tameka apparently tweeted that she was in Miami to enjoy a little fun in the sun, but a spy tells me that Tameka is actually stalking her latest prey -- who is a "professional baller." That could mean that the unfortunate fella is a ball player, a rapper or a drug dealer. Take your pick. But whoever he is, I'm told that the dude is not currently single. That Tameka LOVES a challenge!

It's every future mom's hope for her unborn baby to have at least one set of grandparents around to babysit the kid while she goes clubbing. That may or may not be the reason why Khloe Kardashian is so concerned about her hubby, LA Lakers star Lamar Odom, reconciling with his father.

During last night's series premiere of 'Khloe and Lamar,' Khloe revealed the real reason Lamar and his father don't speak.

Khloe comes from a tight-knit family, where everyone is involved and supportive. Even though she lost her dad, attorney Robert Kardashian, to cancer at an early age, she enjoys a tight relationship with her stepfather, former Olympic gold medal winner Bruce Jenner. So it's hard for Khloe to understand why a man would be distant toward his own father.

But in a single phone call, Khloe learns that Lamar's father, Joe, was only interested in trying to get some money out of him. Khloe saw that Joe was nowhere near the father that her dad and Bruce have been to her and her siblings.
