Nick Cannon, the actor, comedian, and television host, has recently made headlines for his comments about having more children.
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the 42-year-old said that he is open to having more children but ultimately it is up to God to decide when he’s done.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he started. “God decides when we’re done, but I believe I definitely got my hands full. And I’m so focused. I’m locked in. But when I’m 85, you never know. I might.”
Cannon became a daddy of 12 in December when he welcomed his baby girl Halo Marie Cannon, with model Alyssa Scott.
As previously reported by Sis2Sis, Cannon also has twins with his ex-wife Mariah Carey, Moroccan and Monroe. He fathers sons Rise Messiah and Golden Sagon and daughter Powerful Queen with model Brittany Bell. He shares daughter Onyx Ice Cole with former Price Is Right model LaNisha Cole. He and model Bre Tiesi share a daughter, Legendary Love.
He fathers his recent newborn daughter, Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, and twins Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa. He and Scott also shared a son named Zen, who, unfortunately, passed away at five months from brain cancer.
Cannon says being a father of 12 is all about balance and hopes to be the best father he can for his kids.
“Everybody thinks it’s time management. It’s energy management,” he said. “Once we’re all aligned, the flow is a lot easier. If there’s any kind of low frequencies or dissension in there, that’s what messes up the scheduling. As long as we’re all on the same page and we all got the same goal — to be the best parents we could possibly be — that works and then the scheduling is the scheduling.”
He added, “It’s a blessing, man. Like, hopefully, because of what I am able to do, my kids can do whatever they want to do, to be able to be in a position that if they want to be a nuclear physicist, I know somebody at an Ivy League school that I could [hit up]. If they want to go into the military, if they want to be artists, if they want to be actors, it’s a thing where we have the capability. Let’s start talking about it now so we can help your dreams come true.”
