Awww, how cute! 

On Friday, at NBC Universal’s Summer Press Day at the Landgham Hotel in Pasadena, California, Nick Cannon told People.com that he's in awe of his wife Mariah Carey, who's 8 months pregnant with their twins.

“She is the most beautiful, strong person I’ve ever met," gushed Cannon, 30. "Seeing her go through this and have to literally just relinquish everything that she’s always been, and sacrifice her being for her children is just the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen," he added.

Cannon says he too is excited to experience the joys of fatherhood. “It’s been the most amazing journey I’ve ever been on,” he said. “I’ve heard that the journey only gets better, so I can’t wait.”

Cannon says the babies, which are due on May 14, have already received tons of gifts. “We have so many baby clothes,” he explains. “The babies have a bigger wardrobe than my wife and me put together."

He says his favorite item is a cool dinette baby tea set that was a present from Jay-Z and Beyoncé. “It comes with a table and chairs," he adds. 

But of all the gifts, nothing brings Cannon more happiness than simply being with the woman he loves. “I’m an ordinary guy in an extraordinary situation,” he says. “I got a chance to marry my dream girl."
