Tooth fairy, are you out there? You’re needed at Mariah Carey’s home right away.

Her 5-year-old son, Moroccan, just lost his first tooth, and he (and his mom) couldn’t wait to share the good news.

Moroccan's excitement is on full display in a video Carey posted to Instagram. In the clip, he's encouraged to show off the gap in his teeth for the camera. Yep, he definitely lost a tooth.

“My tooth fell out and I’m so excited!” Moroccan declares. “I’m so happy! I want to show my mommy so bad!”

We're so happy for you, Moroccan! We hope the tooth fairy leaves a nice gift under your pillow.

It’s been an eventful year so far for Moroccan and his twin sister, Monroe. Last weekend they had a colorful Easter celebration with their mom and dad (Carey’s ex-husband, Nick Cannon).

In March, they had a family outing to the Nickelodeon's Kids’ Choice Awards, and they stole the show with their matching outfits.
