“I can’t believe it’s been six years since you two came into this world to the live version of Fantasy.. “the applause!!!” I love you both more each day. You are the light of my life #Supernatural #HappyBirthday #RocnRoe,” she captioned the happy photo, with the hash tags referring to her nicknames for the duo, Roc and Roe.

Nick previously revealed that Mariah requested that the hospital where she gave birth was “shut down” and that a version of her 1995 song Fantasy was played in the delivery suite.

“Now my wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey – her Madison Square performance of ‘Fantasy’ – so they came out to a round of applause,” he said during on The Gayle King Show in 2011.

Meanwhile, Nick has also posted a throwback photo to mark the twins’ birthday. The rapper and TV presenter shared a snap of Moroccan and Monroe in their crib wearing matching beanies.
