Sidebar – why is Mariah just now receiving her star on The Walk of Fame???

Mariah Carey is surrounded by her children – Moroccan and Monroe –  as she received the 2,556th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today in Hollywood, California.

Also on hand to help MiMi celebrate was director Lee Daniels, Brett Ratner, BET‘s Stephen Hill, record executive L.A. Reid and more!

As far as the late pass, Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez says Carey was selected in 2007, but “her team wanted a date after [she] finished her sold-out Las Vegas residency.”

Oh, BUT OF COURSE! Gotta love MiMi.

Check out more flix below, and also of her son stealing the show:
