Mariah Carey spends Thanksgiving with ex-husband Nick Cannon



All Mariah Carey wants for the holidays is to put her “family first.” And it appears she got just that.

According to her ex-husband Nick Cannon’s Instagram feed, this year’s Thanksgiving turned out to be another peaceful and united one for the exes, who came together to celebrate with their adorable kids Monroe and Moroccan.

In a series of snaps posted via Instagram, both Monroe and Moroccan looked swagged out while hanging out with mom and dad. “Happy Thanksgiving,” Carey captioned an image featuring the family-of-four popping a pose for the ‘gram. “#Thanksgiving moments #GiveThanks.” Cannon later added, “Turkey Day Swag! #Festive #FamilyFirst.” The “America’s Got Talent” host also invited his mother to the feast that featured Carey in one of her signature looks, a glamorous black dress and diamonds.



Earlier in the day, Carey kicked off the 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Rocking a vibrant red gown, white wrap jacket, satin gloves and a diamond statement necklace, 45-year-old dazzled while performing her classic holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

Carey, who is now dating Australian billionaire James Parker, announced her split from Cannon in August 2014 after six years of marriage. Despite the breakup, the duo have remained close for their children. Now that’s how you co-parent! For more snaps of Cannon and Carey’s Thanksgiving holiday, check out the gallery below.

    Note to the writer: throw in Nick’s age if you are gonna give Mariah’s age. And length of marriage. And the divorce month and year.
