Mariah Carey is spending time with "dem babies" amid marriage trouble with husband Nick Cannon. The "We Belong Together" singer enjoyed having breakfast with the couple's 3-year-old twins at what appeared to be her NYC apartment on Friday.

"Friends forever!!!! #breakfastmoments," Carey captioned a picture via Instagram. Moroccan (with a big smile!) sweetly embraced his sister Monroe as they both wore pink and green pajamas.

As previously reported, Carey and Cannon's six-year marriage is on the rocks. The "America's Got Talent" host confirmed the news himself during an interview with "The Insider" earlier this week.
