Mariah Carey's style has always leaned more towards tacky than tasteful.

The 41-year-old pop star gave birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe on April 30th, and husband Nick Cannon gave her a Mother's Day present she won't soon forget -- a $12,000 necklace featuring the babies names.

The bauble was a custom creation from jeweler Jason Arasheben of Jason of Beverly Hills, who also created her infamous diamond ring pop. It's made of white and rose gold and contains both diamonds and pink sapphires.

"Nick was really excited about the babies’ names and wanted to do a piece with them for Mariah’s first Mother’s Day,'" Arasheben told People magazine. 

On "Piers Morgan Tonight," Cannon revealed more details from the pregnancy and birth and confirmed reports that Child Protective Services were called to the hospital.

"It all started where a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness or a small amount of Guinness, the dark beer, that the yeast improves breastfeeding," Cannon said. "Then [anonymous callers] were saying that my wife was drinking beer and all that stuff. It’s like people would do anything to conjure up a story."

Cannon clarified the situation with Child Protective Services and the issue was quickly settled.

The new dad also revealed that the twins were born to much fanfare. "My wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey -- her Madison Square performance of 'Fantasy' -- so they came out to a round of applause," Cannon said on "The Gayle King Show." Carey was chauffeured to the hospital via Rolls Royce, of course.

Talk about over the top!

Carey wasn't the only new mom showered with a lavish "push present." Rachel Zoe's husband Rodger Berman gave his wife a 10-carat Neil Lane diamond ring after she gave birth to their son, Skyler, in late March.
