Nick Cannon Wishes Mariah Carey Well on Engagement

Comedian Nick Cannon congratulates ex-wife Mariah Carey on her engagement to James Packer through a funny Instagram post.

Following casino tycoon James Packer's proposal to Mariah Carey last Thursday, Nick Cannon shows his support for the couple in an unconventional way on social media. 

After six years of marriage, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey officially called it quits back in December 2014 when Cannon filed for divorce. The now ex-couple share two children, twins Monroe and Moroccan.

Far from being outraged by the engagement, he is supportive of Carey and Packer's announcement.

Cannon took to Instagram with a meme of himself in a hospital bed with fellow comedian Kevin Hart staring down at him. The photo reads, "It's just a ring Nick....." as a nod to Mariah's brand new diamond ring. 

The jokester captioned 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."

Nick Cannon Mariah Carey Engagement Response

Although the newly engaged couple have gathered support, they may not be able to wed anytime soon. 

It seems that even though both Mariah and James are separated from their previous spouses, neither of them are actually divorced. Mariah and Nick have yet to finalize their divorce while James is still legally married to actress Erica Parker. 

If Nick Cannon is truly happy for his almost-ex-wife, will he help her out and quicken up the divorce proceedings? Only time will tell.
