Los Angeles - Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey will spend Christmas together.

The couple, who married in 2008, announced their separation earlier this year, but Nick has confirmed that won't stop him spending the festive season with his estranged wife and their three-year-old twins, daughter Monroe and son Moroccan.

Looking forward to Christmas, he said: "Gotta keep that going. I want to make sure we have a wonderful holiday together."

Asked where they would spend the big day, the 34-year-old star told In Touch: "Somewhere cold and snowy, like Aspen."

Nick explained that his children are his number one priority and even previewed their Christmas presents, saying: "Everything I do is for them. I just want to be the best father I can possibly be.

"My son loves games, like Angry Birds, but I'm trying to keep their eyes on the educational stuff. And honestly, my daughter likes sparkly things."

Mariah shared her recent Christmas shopping adventures on Instagram...
