Nick Cannon has said he knew "instantly" that Mariah Carey was the one for him.
The couple, who have two-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe together, tied the knot in 2008.
The America's Got Talent host told Ebony magazine: "It was early on when I found out how spiritual she was, and we had conversations about kids and how to live life.
"For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I've always wanted," Mail Online quoted him as telling the mag.
Nick posed with Mariah, who was previously married to music mogul Tommy Mottola, in a pool in matching red outfits for the cover of the issue.
He said wouldn't want their children to become child stars.
"Me personally, I wouldn't put my kids on television," he said.
"But as easy as it is for me to say that ... if I saw that they really really wanted to and they had the drive, then I would fully support it. As long as there's balance at home, then they could do whatever they wanted to do."
