London - Mariah Carey dumps her twins diaper duties on Nick Cannon.

The 'America's Got Talent' presenter has revealed while he and his spouse are supposed to take it in turns to do the smelly task he ends up changing 18-month old Monroe and Moroccan a lot more than his diva wife.

When asked by TV talk show host Anderson Cooper who changes the most nappies, Nick replied: "Me! I mean we all do it but for some reason I get that duty a little bit more.

"I am not scared of it. I go in, I put the gloves on. Real men change diapers!"

The 31-year-old star admits he loves being a father and he really enjoys just being at home with the toddlers - even though they have turned his home upside down.

He explained: "It's a good time! Right now, the kids run the house. We are just running and chasing after them and then my wife is being the diva that she is. I am trying to keep up with them."

Nick also spoke about the feud between Mariah and Nicki Minaj on 'American Idol' - on which they both act as judges - and insists he will support his wife no matter what.

He said: "I think it was what it was. A lot of theatrics and stuff. I guess I was a little disappointed in the producers because that's not what 'American Idol' is about.

"I felt like they fed off of it a little bit. You know, people are always going to have disagreements and stuff.

"Clearly you can see that they are a very intense judging panel but obviously everybody is interested in what the show is going to be about and my wife is the classiest and the strongest woman that I've ever met so she's handling it the way she is supposed to handle it." - Bang Showbiz
