According to People, Cannon was so nervous that he got lost inside the hospital and took Carey to the wrong ward. Cannon then had to be redirected to the correct department.
"When they walked into the hospital, [Cannon] was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go [to] the maternity ward, and I said to her, 'That's right out of [the TV show] I Love Lucy', and she laughed," said the couple's rep Cindi Berger.
Carey gave birth to the couple's twins yesterday on their third wedding anniversary.
Berger went on to dispel the rumours that Carey had planned to give birth that particular day.
"No, not even Mariah could plan that," she said.
Cannon told talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week that Carey was likely to give birth at any second.
