Their divorce has hardly been smooth sailing, but while covering up tattoos is an option not putting their children first is not.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon played happy families in Santa Monica, California, on Saturday so that they could spend the day with their twins Moroccan and Monroe.
The dailymail reports that the estranged couple arrived in separate cars to Susie Cakes bakery but clearly left their differences inside the vehicles for their kids.
Mariah arrived first with the four-year-old twins as well as a friend and her daughter.
Despite wearing terrifyingly high heels, the 45-year-old carefully lifted little Monroe out of the car before she bolted along with her friend to get a sweet treat.
Mariah paired her platforms with a paisley print sundress and a giant floppy hat for their outing.
The twins had been in Paris with their mother all last week, so this may have been Nick’s first chance to see them since their trip.
The 34-year-old musician arrived bearing gifts, carrying what appeared to be two boxed toys.
Inside, Nick and his two children got down to the serious business of eating the famed Susie Cake desserts.
While they are a celeb-loved bakery, one thing was not to Nick and the twins’ liking – there was no chocolate milk.
Posting a picture of him and the two little ones poking out their tongues on Instagram, he wrote: ‘#mood How we feel about milk without chocolate!
‘But all the other food was on point! #DemYoungens _#Ncredible #Love.’
However, while no doubt Nick loves hanging out with his children, there may be another reason he came along to the cake day with his estranged wife.
The 34-year-old actor, who filed for divorce in December 2014 after six years of marriage, was recently filmed telling TMZ that the door is not yet closed on their relationship.
