Nick Cannon Gives Insight to Having Seven Kids

Nick Cannon is now a father of seven kids and was quick to defend why he’s had so many in such a short amount of time.

During his Power 106 Los Angeles radio show, City Girls and rapper JT advised the host to “wrap it up and protect yourself.” Insinuating that this would prevent unintended pregnancies.

Cannon responded, “I’m having these kids on purpose. I don’t have no accident!”

Adding, “Trust me, there’s a lot of people I could’ve gotten pregnant that I didn’t,” he assured on the radio show. “The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant. You only live once.”

It’s been reported that the Masked Singer host welcomed his seventh child on June 23 with Model Alyssa Scott. In an Instagram post, Scott shared a photo of herself holding her newborn son, with the caption, “I will love you for eternity 🖤 6•23•21”

Also during the show, Cannon joked about being like a seahorse: “I’m like a seahorse out here. That’s just the way I’m procreating.”

Earlier this summer, Cannon also welcomed twin sons, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with Abby De La Rosa. In addition, the Nickelodeon alum also shares 4-year-old Golden and 6-month-old Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell and 10-year-old twins Moroccan Cannon and Monroe Cannon with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
