Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Singer Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon celebrated their third wedding anniversary Saturday with another milestone: becoming first-time parents with the birth of their twins.

The twins, a girl and boy, were born in Los Angeles at 9:07 a.m. (12:07 p.m. ET), according to Carey's representative, Cindi Berger.

The couple "are completely overjoyed and feel totally blessed," Berger told CNN.

The girl was born first, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces, while the boy weighed in at 5 pounds, 6 ounces, Berger said.

"My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!" the 30-year-old Cannon tweeted Saturday.

The couple announced in December that Carey, 41, was carrying twins.

The names of the babies were not released.
