Mariah Carey appears to push son out of way to blow out birthday candles

Mariah Carey celebrated her birthday yesterday in typical Mariah Carey style  at Disneyland.

Fans noticed something a little odd in Carey's Instagram story.

The star was accompanied by her six-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe at the happiest place on earth for her "anniversary" (she prefers not to call them birthdays). But she was clearly not letting them anywhere near her spotlight as she leaned over to blow out the candles on her princess castle cake.

In an Instagram clip she shared during the evening, the 'We Belong Together' hitmaker can be seen gently elbowing her son Moroccan out of the way as he leans in to kiss her on the cheek.

She was joined by her long-time boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, 34.

"Happy anniversary darling" Mariah says, seemingly to herself, blowing a kiss towards the camera.

"Anniversary celebrations at the most festive place on earth!" she wrote on social media later along with a snap of herself posing with a handful of Mickey Mouse ear balloons in hand.

Carey prefers not to address her birthday as such, and it's unclear exactly how old the pop icon was turning, with Daily Mail putting it somewhere around 48 or 49.

In an interview with Complex in 2016, she claimed she didn't have a birthday at all.

'I was just dropped here,' she insisted. 'It was a fairyland experience.'
