"We're doing OK but we're stranded in Aspen. I know, we could be in a lot worse places, but the truth is as long as we're together, we're OK."

Mariah – who has eight-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her husband – has asked her fans to pray for Nick to make a speedy recovery.
She added: "I'm not trying to make light out of the situation because it's a serious moment that's very tough on all of us. So please keep us and our family in your prayers."
