Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon: One of the Hottest Celebrity Couples Around

82nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

(Photo Agency)more pics » Mariah Carey (Photo Agency) Zimbio just rolled out its 100 Hottest Celebrity Couples of 2011 list, and new parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are sitting pretty at the #34 spot! They jumped up from #48 last year.

It's been an exciting year for Mariah and Nick in the family department, but they're having a slow year career-wise. However, that's mostly because Mariah's the new mom of twins and Nick's been busy painting butterflies and Easter eggs on her very, very pregnant belly (and doing whatever Mariah tells him).

Oddly, this has made them extremely popular on the Internet, and also upped their staying power. While the diva hasn't released anything but her 2010 Christmas album, she still remains one of the highest-selling artists of all time. Nick's an exceptional dad-in-training, and is also releasing his first stand-up comedy album and DVD, Mr. Showbiz, in May.

This is Zimbio.com's third annual list of the 100 Hottest Celebrity Couples. Each year couples are scored in four categories: popularity, success, attractiveness and staying power. The resulting scores are used to rank the couples accordingly. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie topped the list in 2009 while David and Victoria Beckham were deemed the number one couple in 2010. Find out more about our scoring process here.
