On Friday, Nick Cannon announced the birth of his tenth child.
Cannon and his partners have been open about the births of his kids in the media.
He has said that he is "blessed with the gifts of children."
Nick Cannon has been open about the births of his children in the media.
"I'm having these kids on purpose. I don't have no accident," he told the City Girls rappers JT and Yung Miami during a July 2021 interview on his syndicated radio show on Power 106 FM.
Cannon said he practices consensual non-monogamy and selects the mothers of his children wisely. "Trust me, there's a lot of people that I could've gotten pregnant that I didn't. The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant," he added during his conversation with JT and Yung Miami.
In 2017, he connected his aversion to using condoms to his ongoing struggle with the autoimmune disease lupus in an interview with Howard Stern. "I'm probably gonna die sooner than most people... so let's fuck all night! So why wear condoms? I might not be here tomorrow," he told the legendary shock jock.
He told the Drink Champs podcast that he had taken a vow of celibacy after consulting with his therapist in October 2021. He explained how he broke his vow on a recent episode of the Lip Service podcast.
Cannon told E! News that he was not planning on having more children and had a vasectomy consultation in May 2022. However, in July he told ET's Nischelle Turner that he would not be surprised if he had three more kids in 2022.
In September 2022, when announcing the birth of his ninth child, he requested that the public not criticize his co-parents on social media. "As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength," he wrote in an Instagram post.
"So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children," he continued.
Cannon and then-wife Mariah Carey welcomed twins named Monroe and Moroccan in April 2011.
Carey and Cannon got married in 2008 after a brief courtship. They had twins, Moroccan and Monroe, who they and the press nicknamed #dembabies, in 2011. They separated in 2014 and their divorce was finalized in 2016. They continue to co-parent.
Cannon shared some of their parenting challenges, including a squabble over when the twins would be allowed to get a cell phone, on "The Nick Cannon Show."
Most recently, Cannon made headlines after renting out a water park for a day for the twins.
In February 2017, Cannon and model Brittany Bell announced they had a son, Golden "Sagon."
Bell's first pregnancy was reported in November 2016.
Cannon confirmed that he was the baby's father in an interview on the Breakfast Club in November 2016. "God said be fruitful and multiply. I'm doing the Lord's work," he told hosts DJ Envy, Charlemagne Tha God, and Angela Yee.
He announced the baby's birth with a sweet Instagram message in February 2017.
"God always reminds us of our purpose #TrueHappiness Welcome to Earth Son! Golden "Sagon" Cannon 2/21/17 #Awakened," he wrote in a caption of a now-deleted photo of him practicing skin-to-skin contact with his newborn.
In December 2020, Cannon and Bell welcomed their second child, a daughter named Powerful Queen Cannon.
Bell announced that she and Cannon were expecting their second child together by posting an image of Golden sporting a Spider-Man costume with a cape that read "big brother" on the back in June 2020.
They announced the birth of their daughter, Powerful Queen Cannon, by posting a Christmas-themed family photo on Instagram.
"The best gift ever ♥ we have been surprised with... A GIRL!!!!!" Bell wrote in the caption.
Cannon and DJ Abby De La Rosa had twins named Zillion and Zion in June 2021.
DJ Abby De La Rosa announced that she and Cannon were expecting twins with an Instagram post in April 2021. She said Cannon was her "dearest friend" and had won her heart with "openness and honesty."
They welcomed twin boys named Zillion and Zion that June and celebrated the brothers turning 1 month old with a music-themed family photoshoot. The babies wore oversized headphones and posed with tiny turntables representing their talented parents.
Cannon and model Alyssa Scott welcomed a baby boy named Zen the same month Zillion and Zion were born.
Scott worked on Cannon's comedic improv show "Wild N' Out." She announced she and Cannon were expecting a child together with a now-deleted Instagram post in January 2021. Their child Zen was born in June 2021.
Zen died at 5 months old from brain cancer on December 5, 2021. The loss inspired Cannon to start a foundation dedicated to pediatric healthcare.
In June 2022, Cannon had his first child with model and realtor Bre Tiesi, a son named Legendary Love.
Tiesi, who will soon join the cast of "Selling Sunset," told the "Know For Sure" podcast in June 2022 that she and Cannon had been dating on and off for 10 years. The couple also worked together on Cannon's "Wild N' Out."
Cannon announced that he'd welcomed his first child with photographer and model Lanisha Cole in September 2022, a daughter named Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.
Cannon announced their new addition in a September 15 Instagram post featuring a snapshot of himself, Cole, and their baby girl in the hospital. He expressed his admiration for Cole in the caption of the post.
"@MissLanishaCole is one of the most guileless, peaceful and nonconfrontational kind souls I've ever witnessed, and only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood," he wrote.
In September 2022, Cannon and Bell welcomed their third child together, and Cannon's tenth child, Rise Messiah Cannon.
Cannon announced the birth on his Instagram and also posted a video of the "blessingway" he and Bell hosted.
According to The Birth Hour, a "blessingway" is a celebration of pregnancy and motherhood that is distinct from a baby shower because it focuses more on the mother than the baby. It brings together "prayer warriors" to speak to God and ask him to bring the baby and mother through delivery safely.
Cannon said in his caption that they needed the support because Bell experienced difficult labor.
"A bunch of powerful prayer warriors interceding for our new child's entrance to Earth! And boy did we need it! Probably the most difficult labor and delivery I have ever witnessed! 48 hours of excruciating pain and life risking danger to welcome 10 pounds of Love and joy," he wrote.
He gushed with admiration for his co-parent in the caption.
"@missbbell has been the rock and foundation of my Fatherhood journey. She has taught me so much about parenting, psychology, spirituality, love and just life in general," he wrote.
