Nick surprisingly opened up about his split from Mariah Carey
this year during an interview with Good Morning America
on Monday. The 34-year-old actor revealed how the couple's three-year-old twins
, Moroccan and Monroe, will be coping this holiday season.
"We'll forever be family," Nick said of Mariah. "At the same time, we're there for our children, making them the number one priority and understanding that they're loved and can have an amazing holiday."
Nick confirmed the couple's separation in August, after multiple reports that the two were calling it quits after six years of marriage.
Nick was on GMA Monday to promote his new children's book inspired by his own kids, Roc and Roe's 12 Days of Christmas, and also revealed how the Cannon/Carey family typically celebrate Christmas.
"It's always a house full of people, and pets and dogs, and you know Christmas Eve we like to have sleigh rides and reindeer so it's a lot of fun," he says about their action-packed holiday. "Everything seems over the top, but it really happens."
