Nick Cannon may be the only dad with his own starting lineup!
The “Masked Singer” host and comedian recently opened up about his family life, revealing that he is a proud father of 12 children.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Cannon shared that being a father is his number one priority and he loves having a big blended family.
“I believe that’s what we’re put on this planet here to do, is to guide and usher in your offspring. So fatherhood is my number one and first priority when I open my eyes, when I get up every morning,” he said.
Cannon’s brood includes 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey, as well as children with other partners, such as Golden, Rise, Powerful Queen, Zion, Zillion, Beautiful Zeppelin, Legendary Love, Onyx Ice, Halo Marie, and sadly, his son Zen, who passed away in December 2021 from brain cancer.
While some might think that having 12 children would be overwhelming, Cannon said that he loves his big family and always strives to be there for them.
“My goal in life is just to love my kids and be there for my kids and provide for them,” he said. “Like I always say, I just love with abundance.”
As for how he manages to keep up with such a large family, Cannon revealed that he has a new show, “The Daily Cannon,” which debuts on April 24.
The live show will allow him to “control my narrative” and talk about his family on a daily basis, with some of his children even making cameos.
We can’t wait to see what the Cannon family has in store!
