Los Angeles: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their wedding vows in hospital shortly after the actress gave birth to twins on their anniversary.

The 41-year-old singer gave birth to a boy and a girl at a medical facility in Los Angeles on Saturday, exactly three years after she married Cannon in the Bahamas, said reports.

The couple had planned to renew their vows that day, but it was put on hold when Carey went into labour.

Cannon, 30, has now confirmed they went through with the ceremony on Sunday while Carey was still in the hospital, by asking their friend, Reverend Al Sharpton, to come to the medical facility to oversee the service.

"Thank you to The Rev Al who came all the way to the hospital to renew me and my wife's vows and pray with our children... Yep we just had a wedding in the hospital!" the rapper-actor said.
