Diva crooner Mariah Carey gave birth to beautiful twins on her and Nick Cannon’s third wedding anniversary.  According to People, the new dad tweeted, “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life!”  The happy couple received many congratulations over Twitter from Hollywood moguls such as Nicki Minaj and Alyssa Milano after the birth of a healthy baby boy and girl.  They are completely overjoyed.

How do you keep your anniversary romantic when you have kids?

Cupid’s Advice:

Once you have kids, the lives of you and your partner will be forever changed.  However, that doesn’t mean you can’t make a little time for yourselves as a couple, especially on days such as your anniversary:

1. Hire a babysitter: Even parents need a night off.  Hiring a sitter is a great way to make time for yourself and to teach your children independence.

2. Celebrate as a family: Your kids are an important part of your life as a couple.  A great way to include them in your anniversary celebration is to take a trip as a family.  As long as your kids are old enough, you can always get separate rooms (next to each other, of course).

3. Have a romantic dinner at home: Providing that the kids stay asleep, celebrating your anniversary at home can be a lot cheaper and more convenient than going out.
