Both kids helped out with Carey's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade performance as backup dancers, and she was excited they wanted to be a part of it. "When they want to be involved and feel like it will be something fun, they show up, attend rehearsals, and get really into it," she said. "It's such a joy to be able to watch them when they're fully engaged, relating to their other friends - many of which are aspiring singers or dancers who weren't born into the entertainment world."

The singer is making sure to put an emphasis on a good working ethic and is enjoying watching them grow. "I think it's important that they learn these lessons because I grew up without that privilege and they need to understand that it is so important to try your hardest and do your best," she explained. "It's one of my greatest honors to watch them shine."

This wasn't the first time joining her mom on stage to perform. Monroe, along with twin Moroccan joined their mom on stage during a performance of "Always Be My Baby" during Carey's "#1 to Infinity" Las Vegas residency a few years ago. And they are often seen on Carey's social media singing, dancing and acting.

In September, the kids, along with Millie Bobby Brown, helped Carey recreate a scene from her iconic "Honey" video. The twins were naturals in the hilarious roles they played in the clip.
