Fans have had a field day at Nick Cannon‘s expense!
The multi-hyphenate, who has become well-known for his reproduction skills, once again caused a social media uproar after he shared a hint about welcoming a new baby to his clan. If fans’ speculations are true, this would be Cannon’s 13th child, as he already shares the other 12 with various women, including Mariah Carey, Bre Tiesi, LaNisha Cole, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, and Alyssa Scott.
Nick Cannon Teases Potential Bombshell About Welcoming Yet Another Child
Barely four months after he welcomed his daughter, Halo Marie, with Scott, Cannon has shared the likelihood of holding yet another baby. The 42-year-old host took to Twitter to drop the potential bombshell for his 4.6 million followers, telling them to “EXPECT some big news tomorrow.”
Although the text seemed harmless, the accompanying baby’s milk bottle emoji made fans curious enough to troll him in the replies, with one person asking if he got a vasectomy. A second person wondered if he was not tired yet, and a third tweeted, “Ok now nick what u doing sir[.] I know it’s paper work behind these woman [sic] having ur kids so what’s the end game.”
A fourth Twitter user told the “Wild ‘N’ Out” host that his baby announcements were “no longer surprising,” and a fifth claimed that Cannon’s update was “like announcing its March.”
Another observer informed him, “You’re going to need a rolodex to keep track of all their names and birthdays,” as a seventh added that the “only thing bigger” than the “America’s Got Talent” host having another kid would be him “not having any more kids.”
Meanwhile, one fan, who seemed unbothered by the baby-birthing drama, tweeted a congratulatory message and a prayer for the potentially new dad.
This would not be the first time that the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” actor would suffer some heat for his reproductive choices. In fact, the drama had gotten so bad that he had to address it during a recent interview. The Blast reported that the “Even Money” star stated:
“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 [decide to have more].”
As was mentioned above, Cannon welcomed his 12th child last December, making it his second child with Scott. The pair had previously birthed a son — Zen — in April 2021, who died after a short bout with brain cancer at five months old.
His other kids include son Legendary, with Tiesi; daughter Onyx, with Cole; a son Rise Messiah, with Bell, with whom he shares two other children — Golden Sagon and Powerful Queen; and twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir and a daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, with De La Rosa.
The “Day of the Dead” actor began his fatherhood journey in 2011 when he and his then-wife Carey welcomed their twins — Monroe and Moroccan. The former lovebirds, who walked down the aisle in April 2008, separated in 2014, finalizing their divorce in 2016.
The ‘Wild N’ Out’ Host Has No Clear Plans Regarding His Baby Daddy Life
While the world recovered from the festivities associated with Christmas and the New Year, Cannon spent time discussing his fatherhood plans for 2023. Per The Blast, the “Nick Cannon Mornings” radio host discussed expanding his family when he appeared on CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live” in early January.
During the live broadcast from Times Square, the host Andy Cohen opened up about his curiosity regarding the “Masked Singer” host’s plans for having so many kids. Cohen’s question rose from his observation that Cannon was on a mission to “single-handedly repopulate the Earth.” In response, the “TeenNick Top 10” video countdown alum stated:
“Clearly, I don’t have a plan. Honestly, man, it’s just so much joy and delight that I have, the family I have, and I embrace it. I love it, and I don’t have a plan. That should have been clear from the jump.”
When the Bravo star tried to find out if his guest planned to have a vasectomy, Cannon dismissed the idea with a laugh, asking if that was what Cohen wanted him to get. He then passionately declared, “This is my body, my choice.”
