"So we r bout 2 reveal the actual names and b4 we tell em 2 our friends etc. both begin w/M's (sic)!!!!"

People from all around the world immediately started tweeting suggestions, but while Mariah, 42, commented on a couple, she gave no further details away.

Nick has meanwhile confirmed his wife is "recovering really well" from the birth and said he feels “blessed” by her and their two beautiful babies.

He told USA Today newspaper: “I am so proud of her and I know she is so relieved and grateful this long-awaited moment is finally here!

“I honestly feel like there are no words to describe this experience.

“Being here with my wife and dembabies makes me realise God has blessed me with the three most beautiful things in the world."
