Nick Cannon, Father Of 12, Says Any Future Babies Are In God’s Hands
In the final months of 2022, it felt as though a new Nick Cannon baby was being born every week. The 42-year-old welcomed more children last year than some become parents to in a lifetime. Presently, it still remains unclear if he’s done. In the past, he’s sometimes gotten defensive when interviewers ask about the possibility of a vasectomy. In a recent interview, he explained that it’s not up to him if his family continues to expand.
He first became a father back in 2011, during his marriage to R&B legend Mariah Carey. They welcomed twins, Monroe and Moroccan, and currently still share custody, though rumour has it that the vocalist is legally battling with her ex over that. Seeing as he’s fathered 10 more kids in the years since she gave birth, Cannon obviously doesn’t have as much time to spend with his oldest two.
The Cannon Family Tree
The San Diego-born star didn’t expand his clan again until 2017 when Brittany Bell gave birth to a boy named Golden Sagon. Three years later the model gave her co-parent his fourth when Powerful Queen was born in December 2020. After this is when things start to get confusing, as more baby mothers enter the picture. Abby De La Rosa became pregnant next, bringing the second set of Cannon twins into the world in the summer of 2021.
Weeks later, Alyssa Scott’s baby boy, Zen, came into the world. Unfortunately, he made a departure at just five months old following a heartbreaking battle with cancer. By the next summer, it was reported that several more Cannon babies were on the way, including Bre Tiesi’s Legendary Love in June 2022 and LaNisha Cole’s Onyx Ice Cole in September. Additionally, Bell, De La Rose, and Scott all continued their respective families with Cannon from late September to mid-December.
Alexa, Play “God’s Plan”
As mentioned earlier, the multi-talent’s family is a sensitive subject for him, particularly when asked about his future plans for more children. Earlier this week Cannon sat down with Entertainment Tonight to discuss fatherhood, among other things. “God decides when we’re done, but I believe I definitely got my hands full,” he acknowledged in the interview.
Ever the jokester, the father of 12 then added, “And I’m so focused. I’m locked in. But when I’m 85, you never know. I might [have more].” Would you be opposed to watching Nick Cannon continue to grow his family, or do you think he should focus on fostering the offspring he already has?
