In case you haven't noticed, Mariah Carey is one happy lady these days!

Whether she's spending quality time with her twins Monroe and Moroccan or preparing her "#1 to Infinity" residency at The Colosseum inside Las Vegas' Caesars Palace, nothing can wipe that smile off the singer's face.

And while her engagement to fiancé James Packer is also making the performer sparkle just a little more than usual, she isn't ready to reveal all to her kids just yet.

"I haven't talked to them about it completely because they are so young so they don't really understand things yet so you have to go slowly and explain things and always make sure they know that this is only going to be good for them," she told E! News' Melanie Bromley. "Their lives are not going to change."

She continued, "For me, as long as we are together and they have a great relationship with their dad, then that's great. It's good. And they are great."

After the magical proposal that featured a 35-carat diamond ring, Nick Cannon headed to social media where he sent his best wishes to the couple. It's further proof that both Nick and Mariah are able to co-parent and put their kids first at very important times.

"I think we are trying our best. I really do," she explained before kicking off her "Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour" in Glasgow March 15. "I know I am trying my best and I think he is too. I know they love being with him and it's nice and I will always say positive things about him to the kids."

While wedding planning and dress shopping is already well underway, Mariah is just delighted to see her kids having "so much fun" with both mommy and daddy. 

"Between Nick and what he does for them and then what I do for them, I just think please don't let these kids be spoiled," she joked with E! News. "I have to reel it in."
