Mariah Carey may be heavily pregnant with twins, but husband Nick Cannon tells us he is the one gaining all the unwanted pregnancy pounds.

“At this point, she's just doing a lot of cooking, she's not even eating. She's creating the smell. So she cooks it, then makes me eat it.  I'm the one gaining all the weight,” Cannon told FOX411’s Pop Tarts last week. "Last night we had buttered pork chops and homemade pecan pie. It's like a smorgasbord in the kitchen every day." 

Speaking of food, Cannon spent his Saturday on the corner of Hollywood and Highland with cereal giants Kellogg’s to help launch the world’s largest cuckoo clock.

 Yes, a cuckoo clock. 

"We're out there setting a Guinness Book World Record for the biggest cuckoo clock for Kellogg's crunchy nut cereal. It's really cool because it's always breakfast time somewhere,” he explained.

But back to their future brood, the famous couple already has names picked out for their little ones (although they’re keeping it under wraps) and Cannon said they hope to be strict but spirited parents.

"Yes all that (good cop, bad cop) but we’ll still have fun at the same time,” he said of his parenting plans.

And when the expectant parents aren’t in the kitchen, they’re indulging in the new season of “American Idol.”

"I think everyone is having a good time. The new judges are doing their thing. It's good to see Randy Jackson in the power seat – kinda like that. I'm enjoying it,” Cannon continued. "I am catching (an extra feel good factor.) It's really pulling at your heart strings a bit more, which is nice."

On the note of making music, can we expect a future collaboration between Carey and Cannon?

“You never know. If we do, it will only be in fun,” he said. “I don't feel like I'm worthy to ever be in the studio with Mariah Carey on a serious note."

So how did the now 30-year-old rapper/record producer manage to win over one of the world’s all-time biggest music sensations?

"That's the question of the hour,” he added with a smile. “I don't know – I got lucky."
