Mariah Carey's four-year-old daughter, Monroe, could be set for a music career as she can already sing like her famous mother.

The We Belong Together singer takes her little girl and twin brother Moroccan around the world on tour with her and says her daughter has picked up some of the music skills which have helped Carey sell more than 50 million albums.

However Carey doesn't want to pressure her children into showbusiness, despite feeling that Monroe has a future in music.

"I can tell she has a really good ear - she can mimic what I can do. But she's only four and a half. And it's not fair for me to push it on her, so I am allowing her to be who she is. At the moment, she would rather be silly with it," Carey told Britain's Sunday Times Style magazine.

Carey is separated from Moroccan and Monroe's father, American TV personality Nick Cannon, and recently found love again with Australian billionaire James Packer.

The couple, who met in the ski resort of Aspen, Colorado, announced their engagement in January, and are reportedly set to wed later this year.
