Nick Cannon’s growing family has been the cause of many conversations in recent weeks. The television mogul is now the proud father of 7 children. Fans have pulled from past interviews and conversations from Cannon and people close to Cannon to try and figure out why he’s growing his family so fast. He recently sat down with the City Girls JT and Yung Miami to discuss their new music. During the sit down the girls made a comment about “wrapping it up”, promoting Cannon to reveal that his growing family is intentional.
Nick Cannon has two kids with singer Mariah Carey, twins Moroccan Cannon and Monroe Cannon. He then welcomed two more children with ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell named Golden “Sagon” Cannon and Powerful Queen Cannon. Shortly after, Abby De La Rosa confirmed she too was pregnant by Cannon and gave birth to twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir. Alyssa Scott is the most recent woman to come forward and confirm that she’s gotten knocked up by Cannon. They recently welcomed new baby Zen.
Some have pointed to Cannon’s health issues as a reason for his rapid reproducing. He has lupus and has had a very public struggle with it. In a Howard Stern interview he discussed how this has given him some freedoms with how he chooses to live his life, because he fears it could end any day. “When you experience near-death situations – life-threatening situations – it’s honest, it’s real. I feel like ‘Yo, I’m running out of time.’ Every time I think I’m doing good, then I got to go back to the hospital. Almost died this time [due to] the blood clots.” He continued “I don’t fear it, I welcome it! I got to a space now where [I can say] I’m probably gonna die sooner than most people. I mean, that’s what the doctor said. But I’m living life like ‘F—, I might die in the morning, so let’s f– all night! So why wear condoms? I might not be here tomorrow!’”
Cannon’s father has also come forward with reasons for why he’s been having so many kids. Nick famously did a song in 2005 called “Can I live?” about abortion. He and father James Cannon have been very vocal about their stance against it and being pro-life. “I believe children are blessings. And I teach my son, ‘Make as much money as you can, and have as many children as you can.’ I would fight for family. I’m pro-life. I wrote a book called ‘Stop Hating: Can I Live?’, which is Nick’s story.”
Speaking with the City Girls during a recent episode of Nick Cannon radio, he told the MC’s “Trust me there’s a lot of people that I could’ve gotten pregnant that I didn’t,” Cannon said on Wednesday. “The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant.” He continued “I’m like a seahorse out here. That’s just the way I’m procreating.”
