Nick Cannon never ‘planned’ to have 12 children – but was told he would, according to ‘Visions’.
“It’s almost like when you have these manifestations or visions, if you want to call them that, you’re like, ‘Oh, that all makes sense now,'” the 42-year-old entertainer continued “The Language of Love with Dr. Laura Berman” On Wednesday.
Cannon gave birth to his 12th child in December and shares his children with six women. He recently said Onyx Ice, who was born to model LaNisha Cole in September, is “probably the kid I spend the most time with” — but on Wednesday he said “the majority” weren’t planned.
“If you had told me in 2012, while I was still married and just diagnosed with lupus, that I would have 12 children in 10 years, I would have thought there was no way I would ever plan to do that. Otherwise I would.” happen,” he told Berman.
The “Masked Singer” and “Wild ‘n Out” host – who was married to Mariah Carey from 2008 to 2016 – said he “heard” that he was going to be “a father to many” — and that his visions were assured him that he was “a big influence” and that his children were “going to do great things.”
“I did,” he told Berman. “And I think, ‘The more the merrier.’ We decide the name and what you will build.”
Cannon’s children are the most diverse in age. He has 12 year old twins with Carey, 2 and 6 year olds and a 9 month old with Brittany Bell, 3 year old twins and a 7 month old with Abby De La Rosa and a 6 month old and a 2 year old Child with Alyssa Scott.
He also has an 11 month old with Bre Tiesi as well as 9 month old Onyx Ice with Cole.
Cannon said he wanted to “deliberately” advance and “not stretch anyone any further than they already are” — but when Berman asked about his “deep moments in the woods” and if God was telling him to “have all these babies.” .” he admitted to a lack of free will.
“I’ve gotten in trouble because of that, too, because people would ask me if I was done,” he told Berman. “And I’m like, ‘Only God can tell me if I’m done.'”
Cannon recently admitted to mistaking his children’s mothers for Mother’s Day cards, probably joking that the six women “don’t want anything to do with him” — and that he “gets in trouble with them every day.”
Whether God will tell Cannon to have a 13th child remains to be seen.
