If there’s one thing you’ll know about Nick Cannon, it’s that he has 12 kids. This might be unusual or too many to most people, but for Nick, he’s actually been reminiscing on if he could’ve had more.
The 42 year-old TV personality who fathered 12 children with six women, said that he wishes that he had a child with Christina Milian, his ex-girlfriend and former Love Don’t Cost a Thing costar.
“If I say this, I know this gonna go viral,” Nick told The Shade Room in a recent video interview.
Talking about his ex after they’d broken up, he said “But when Christina Milian and I were doing Love Don’t Cost a Thing, I remember when I found out she was pregnant, I was like, ‘Dang, man,’ but I was so happy for her.”
Cannon added that although “everybody talks about having kids,” it didn’t exactly pan out that way for him and Christina.
“I remember that we was kids in love early on, and so we talked about that, but to each his own,” he shared. “Life plans it out. The universe gives it how it’s supposed to be given.”
“But I was so happy for her and you know her daughter is amazing.”
In 2009, Milian announced that she was expecting her first child with her then-husband, the singer The-Dream. She now has two more children with her current boyfriend, Matt Pokora.
However, despite not having a child with his ex-girlfriend, Cannon certainly went on to build his own impressive family tree.
In 2022, the Wild ‘N Out host welcomed five children: 8-month-old son with Legendary Lovewith Bre Tiesi, 6-month-old daughter Onyx Ice with LaNisha Cole, 5-month-old son Rise Messiah with Brittany Bell, 4-month-old daughter Beautiful Zeppelin with Abby De La Rosa and 3-month-old daughter Halo Marie with Alyssa Scott.
His son, Zen, with Alyssa sadly died December 2021 at 5 months from a brain tumor.
Nick is also father to twins Moroccan and Monroe, both 11, with ex wife Mariah Carey; twins Zion and Zillion, both 21 months, with Abby and son Golden “Sagon,” 6, and daughter Powerful Queen, 2, with Brittany.
Welcoming five children in 2022 alone, there’s no telling if he plans to stop there.
“Clearly, I don’t have a plan,” Nick on said CNN’s New Year’s Eve special. “Honestly, man, it’s really just so much joy and elation to have the family that I have and I embrace it and I love it, but I don’t have a plan. That should’ve been clear from the jump.”
