Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon and kids celebrate Mother's Day — see the sweet photo

Pop superstar Mariah Carey started her Mother's Day celebrations a little early this year, posing for a sweet photo with her children and her ex-husband Nick Cannon.

Thursday on Instagram, a photo of the couple's adorable reunion popped up on Cannon's Instagram page.

The "America's Got Talent" host's caption reveals the family gathered for "a little dinner after karate class," and all four family members, including 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, showed off their winning smiles for the camera.
