New mom Mariah Carey has been busy nesting with her nearly 8-week-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, but she’ll have to wait to spend time with the other twins – the furry ones – she welcomed right before ‘Roc and ‘Roe arrived.
It turns out that Jill E. Beans and Squeaky, the two dogs born to Carey’s Jack Russell terrier Cha Cha in February, have joined their mother, along with Jack Russells Dolomite, Jay Jay and Jackie Lambchops, in the doghouse.
“I put the dogs outside!” Cannon told PEOPLE in New York on Tuesday. “My wife still has a soft spot for the dogs – I think they should go outside.”
