Nick Cannon mocks ex-wife Mariah Carey's beachside PDA with new beau

Nick Cannon took to his Instagram page to joke about snaps of his ex-wife Mariah Carey debuting her relationship with back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka.

The 36-year-old presenter was married to Mariah between 2008 and 2016, and the pair share five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. Both Nick and Mariah have since moved on, with Mariah going public in her new romance with her toyboy beau by staging an impromptu photoshoot on the beach in Maui, Hawaii, on Monday (28Nov16).

In the pictures, Mariah, 46, can be seen wrapping her leg around her toyboy's waist as he plants a kiss on her lips. Showing off his impressive moves, Bryan, 33, then dipped Mariah so low her hair nearly touched the sand, before picking her back up and carrying her gallantly out of the surf.

But it seems Mariah's method of breaking the news of her new romance isn't a new one. Taking to Instagram on Thursday (01Dec16), Nick shared a very similar snap of him carrying Mariah in the surf as the pair went public with their relationship.

"This is how you do it! LOL (laugh out loud) #WePetty," he captioned the shot.

As the snap attracted much attention from fans, Nick added: "It’s all love! No hate! But damn we looked Amazing!!!"

Mariah's new romance with Bryan comes just weeks after she and her billionaire ex-fiance James Packer called time on their romance following a fight while on holiday in Greece.

Meanwhile, Nick is expecting his third child with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell, and gushed about his situation during an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday night.

"It's outstanding," he smiled when asked about the prospect of becoming a father for the third time. "Honestly they say even in unexpected situations, you still embrace the beauty of bringing a life into this world, because that is what life is all about."
