It’s always nice to see exes who share children get along. And Nick Cannon is showing love for his ex-wife Mariah Carey in his own charming way.

In addition to spending what looked like a drama-free Christmas together as a family, he recently congratulated his ex-wife on her fresh engagement.

As previously reported by Hello Beautiful, Carey and her billionaire Australian boyfriend, James Packer are engaged. The 48-year-old businessman popped the question in New York on Thursday with a $7.5 million Wilfredo Rosado 35-carat ring. And sources claim the couple couldn’t be happier.

Canon, who shares twins with the multiple Grammy award-winning singer, has been mum about the engagement until Friday.

On Instagram he posted a photo of him in a hospital bed, with Kevin Hart hovering over him from BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood. The caption reads, “It’s just a ring Nick…..” Canon wrote underneath the photo, “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.”

Looks like Nick is taking the high road with this whirlwind romance.

While there’s no exact wedding date confirmed, Mariah will start the third leg of her Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace, before embarking on a world tour. Her fiancé plans to join her and continue with his philanthropy work.

This will be the third marriage for Carey and Packer who bring five children to the union.

And while Nick appears to be single, he has been romantically linked to a couple of women including Amber Rose, Jessica White and Winnie Harlow. Currently he’s the host of MTV2’s Wild ‘N Out.
