Nick Cannon: I Change More Diapers Than Mariah Carey

The proud dad also admits that their 18-month-old twins are running the house; he also discussed the Idol feud, saying that he thinks producers leaked the infamous fight video

Do you have trouble picturing Mariah Carey changing a diaper? So does her husband Nick Cannon! During an appearance on Anderson Live on Tuesday, the America's Got Talent host was asked who has primary diaper duty in the Carey-Cannon household -- and Nick said there was no question.

"Me. Me. Oh, yeah," said the father of 18-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. "I mean, we all do it, but for some reason I get that duty more. I'm not scared of it: I go in, I put the gloves on." (Watch the interview clip below!)

Cannon also told Anderson Cooper that his toddlers are giving Mariah a run for her money in the diva department. "Right now, the kids run the house," he joked. "We are just running and chasing after them, and then my wife is being the diva that she is. I am trying to keep up with them."

During his visit, Cannon also weighed in on the great Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj feud of 2012. Obviously, the guy is biased -- but instead of getting into the specifics, he blamed American Idol's producers for making much ado about nothing. (Watch the clip below.)

"I mean, it was what it was. A lot of theatrics and stuff," Cannon sighed, when asked about the infamous leaked video of Carey and Minaj fighting. "I guess I was a little disappointed in the producers because that’s not what American Idol is about. I felt like they fed off of it a little bit. You know, people are always going to have disagreements and stuff...but the fact that someone was able to get a camera phone and take it out...And then it magically shows up on TMZ..."

Cooper agreed with Cannon, saying that he believed from the start that the video had been deliberately leaked by the Idol folks. "Clearly the producers wanted that, because you can't get a camera into that room," the CNN anchor noted.

Cannon did admit, however, that the fight itself was real, and that emotions were running high. "They're a very intense judging panel," he said diplomatically. "But everybody's interested in what the show is going to be about, and I always say, my wife is the classiest and strongest woman I've ever met." Even if she's not crazy about diaper duty!
