Stars give thanks

Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, and children Monroe and Moroccan

Stars have been wishing their fans a happy Thanksgiving.

As well as sharing family snaps, celebrities also took the time to thank followers for their continued support.

Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon were at home with their adorable two-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, who were eager to help their mom and dad get ready for the holiday.

“Family prepping time! #pecanpie #thanksgiving @nickcannon,” Mariah posted on her Instagram account next to a photo of her, Nick and the kids making food.

Ariana Grande told her fans how much she appreciated their support.

Earlier she had tweeted that “everyone in the world should take a big ol’ chill pill” but seemed to have mellowed when her holiday celebrations began.

“Happy Thanksgivinggg my loves… Wishing you a beautiful holiday with your families and loved ones. I am so thankful for you. (sic),” she gushed to her 11.5 million fans.

Rebel Wilson got in there early with a tweet telling followers that she was preparing her body for a big Thanksgiving meal by taking a long walk.

“Working up an appetite for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast x (sic),” she said, posting a picture of her enjoying the great outdoors.

International stars were also getting into the spirit, with One Direction’s Niall Horan leading the way.

The 20-year-old singer and the rest of his band have a lot to be thankful for as their new album Midnight Memories has topped the midweek UK charts, with British newspaper the Guardian reporting that the record is set to be the fastest selling record of the year.

“Happy thanksgiving everyone ! Eat loads (sic),” Niall tweeted to his legion of devoted fans.
