Nick Cannon has been in the news a lot lately for his ever expanding family. The television host and comedian is getting ready to welcome his 7th child, the 3rd one born this year. He has gotten some flack for the way he’s chosen to grow his tribe, having several different baby mothers. Resurfaced Cannon interviews may point to Nick feeling as if his time on earth is running out, but his father has a different explanation for why his son has been bearing so many fruit.
Nick Cannon has talked about how he has no interest in being monogamous over the years. Speaking with T.I on his podcast ExpediTIously Cannon disclosed “I think I’ll never be able to be with just one woman again. I did it in marriage. I was very faithful in my marriage…Once I stepped away from that, I [realized] that construct is not designed for me.” He further expressed that men and monogamy don’t mix, because “it isn’t in their DNA.” In a separate conversation with Evelyn Lozado he also said “It’s that hunting mentality, but it’s also like ‘yo if we suppose to be fruitful and multiply. [There are] not many creatures on earth that are monogamous.”
This explains his many wives. Something even more understandable when he explained to Howard Stern how he felt like he was not going to live much longer and wanted to enjoy life while he was here. “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 has two kids with Mariah Carey, twins Moroccan and Monroe. 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 with what will be his 7th child.
His father explains that in addition to him wanting to live a free and fun life, Cannon is also against abortion. James Cannon said in a recent interview “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.”
