Nick Cannon is celebrating his 43rd birthday, and he has his eldest kids, twins Moroccan and Monroe, by his side to do it.

The television personality rang in another year around the sun on October 8th, and shared an adorable photo next to his 12-year-olds, plus his mom Beth Gardner.

Monroe and Moroccan are Nick's first borns, and only children with Mariah Carey, who he was married to from 2008 to 2016. He has since welcomed ten other children with six different women.

Nick took to Instagram on his 43rd birthday and shared a sweet snap from his celebrations with the twins and their grandmother.

In the photo, the doting dad is sitting in front of his chocolate birthday cake planting a kiss on his son's cheek, while his daughter and mom stand smiling behind them.

"What a way to end this birthday!!" he wrote in his caption, adding: "With my First Borns and my Momma on her Birthing Day!!"
