EXCLUSIVE: Mariah Carey Talks Planning Father's Day for Ex Nick Cannon: 'It's Not That Hard to Make It Work'

By
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon still have so much love for each other.
ET's Kevin Frazier spoke with the "Heartbreaker" singer on Monday as she prepped for her upcoming All the Hits Tour with Lionel Richie. The two jokingly discussed her relationship status -- which she says is "single" even though she's recently been spotted with backup dancer and ex-flame Bryan Tanaka -- and how she makes things work with her ex-husband.
With Father's Day just around the corner, Mimi, 47, has something special planned for the father of her six-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
"He's the kids' father and he does really nice things for me on Mother's Day, so yeah," Carey replied about celebrating Cannon on Father's Day.
The couple tied the knot in 2008 and filed for divorce in 2014. While their split wasn't finalized until 2016, the two kept things friendly and are frequently seen together with their twins.
"He's a good guy," Carey told ET about Cannon. "It's not that hard to make it work. Now we can laugh, and joke, and do the good parts of when we had a relationship."
The singer has always put family first and back in May, Carey couldn't stop gushing about "dem babies."
"I love them so much," she told ET. "They make me so happy. I mean, there are no words for me to really explain it."
Carey is wrapping up her Number 1 to Infinity Las Vegas residency show at Caesars Palace next month. The final dates are July 8 - 18.
