Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Celebrate Fairytale Anniversary at Disneyland [Video]

Nick, Mariah, and Dem Babies

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon went all out to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. “ET” was inside as the couple shut down Disneyland for the fairytale festivities.

Mariah and her daughter Monroe rode down Main Street in a horse-drawn carriage to meet their Prince Charmings, Nick and son Moroccan. The “big kids” brought the Cinderella fantasy to life for around 250 guests and their twins, who celebrated their second birthday earlier in the day.

After renewing their vows, the couple kissed in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle as fireworks lit up the night sky. The party continued well into the early hours of Wednesday morning, with Nick DJ’ing the reception.

“We’ve been through so much in the five years,” said Nick, who was hospitalized last year for kidney failure. “But to be able to experience things with your best friend, to have a teammate in this game of life, is amazing.”

Mariah and Nick have renewed their vows every year. Last year they marked their fourth anniversary at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Following his sudden death on Wednesday, Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly was remembered by many of his peers on Twitter. But few knew the 34-year-old Kris Kross rapper as well as Jermaine Dupri.

The So So Def mogul discovered 13-year-old Chris and his partner Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith at an Atlanta mall in 1991 and signed them to Ruffhouse Records. On Thursday, he posted a letter on his blog Global 14 remembering the “son he never had.”

“When I think about it, I spent more time with Chris and Chris than damn near anybody in my whole life, so you can imagine how bad this hurts,” wrote J.D., who produced Kris Kross’ mega-hit “Jump” as well as their three albums.

In February, J.D. brought Kris Kross together onstage at his 20th anniversary all-star concert in Atlanta to perform a medley of their greatest hits.
