Nick Cannon has more babies on the way!

The entertainer, who is infamously known for having multiple children with different partners, continues to make headlines for his baby-making skills.

During an ET special at the Baha Mar Sanctuary in the Bahamas, the 41-year-old San Diego native announced he would have more children in 2022 while co-hosting the show with Nischelle Turner.

Nick Cannon Addresses His Previous 'Stork Is On The Way' Comment

Last month, Cannon surprised fans by hinting the stork would deliver more children to him in 2022 during his appearance on the "Lip Service" podcast with Angela Yee.

Following this revelation, many people wondered how many babies the "Wild 'n Out" host would be expecting, and Turner wasted no time getting answers from the TV personality.

When she asked the "Gigolo" rapper for a baby count, the San Diego native playfully stated that it would ruin the surprise if he dropped the expected number of children.

Currently, the 41-year-old has fathered seven children with four women: twins with Mariah Carey; a boy and a girl with Brittany Bell; twin sons with Abby De La Rosa; and an infant son, who unfortunately died in December, with Alyssa Scott.

Excluding these kids, Turner noted that the model Bre Tiesi currently carried the "Drumline" star's eighth child, while his former partner De La Rosa has not revealed the father of her unborn child.

Given the high probability that the Hollywood sensation could be responsible for De La Rosa's pregnancy, Turner wondered if Cannon was expecting over/under three children in 2022.

The "Love Don't Cost a Thing" actor seemed pleased with his co-host's guess as he confirmed the number was "close" to what the stork would eventually deliver. In his words:

"You would be safe to bet on three [more children] in 2022."

Although the "Lip Sync Battle Shorties" host continues to leave fans curious about the number of his brood, the entertainer happily cleared Tiesi's name.

Last month, the model got dragged into a controversial affair during her interview with the news outlet where the social media influencer discussed how often the "I Do" rapper spent time with his children.

However, the soon-to-be mom's response implied that the former "America's Got Talent" host would only see his children after they made appointments with his assistant.

Cannon bluntly denied using an assistant to arrange meetings with his kids, clarifying that Tiesi's comments were poorly misunderstood as the situation could not be further from the truth.

The father-of-seven explained that his children had "busier schedules" than he did, which meant several people were involved to ensure he was on the same wavelength with his kids and their mothers. In the "She Ball" actor's words:

"'Okay, such and such has a 9 a.m.  I got to be at ballet at 3. I got to be at baseball at 4.' That's the schedule we were talking about, so no one has to call my assistant to get to me."

As for how the San Diego native manages to navigate his busy life with parenting, the 41-year-old confessed that he felt blessed to be his "own boss" as he could structure his day to be with his kids.

The 'UnderClassman' Star Supported Elon Musk's Efforts To Combat Underpopulation

As previously reported by The Blast, Elon Musk received support from Cannon after the billionaire businessman opened up about mitigating the "underpopulation crisis."

This July, the SpaceX founder secretly welcomed twins with Shivon Zilis, a respected AI researcher, marking the Pretoria native's 10th child.

Unfortunately, the Tesla Inc. CEO has nine existing children as his first child sadly passed away as a baby from Sudden Infant death Syndrome (SIDS).

Following the arrival of his children with Zilis, The Boring Company founder revealed on Twitter that he wished to help the world escape the impacts of underpopulation by making more babies.

According to the billionaire, civilization's most significant threat was the declining birth rate, a sentiment the 51-year-old previously shared in an interview.

At the time, the Neuralink co-founder admitted that he wanted to have as many children as he could adequately raise.

In support of Musk's dreams to end underpopulation was none other than Cannon, who tweeted: "Right there with you my brother."
