Actor and host Nick Cannon was a child star before he had kids of his own. The TV personality started his career as a rapper before finding that he had the charisma to perform well in a variety of settings.
In 2008, he and music superstar Mariah Carey were wed. The marriage lasted for six years.
Who are Nick Cannon's baby mamas?
Nick's relationship with Mariah may be his most famous, but she's not his only baby mama. During his marriage to Mariah, the couple had twins together named Monroe and Moroccan Scott. Monroe is named after Marilyn Monroe, while Moroccan is named after the style of the room where Nick proposed to Mariah. Scott is Nick's middle name and his grandmother's maiden name.
The twins were born on the couple's third wedding anniversary in April 2011.
After his time with Mariah, Nick had another child. In 2017, Nick had his third child with then-girlfriend Brittany Bell, who is a model. They named the baby Golden "Sagon" Cannon. At the time, Nick shared the news of Golden's birth on his Instagram page.
"Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!" he wrote in the photo's caption. "No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! Welcome to Earth Son."
Brittany then welcomed a daughter with the star in December 2020, Powerful Queen Cannon. She shared the news with fans and well-wishers on Instagram with an emotional post.
In fact, she shared that she gave birth to Powerful via a water birth.
Nick and Abby De La Rosa welcomed twins in 2021.
While it's unclear when exactly Nick began dating DJ Abby De La Rosa, Abby shared a slew of photos on April 11, 2021, detailing how lucky she was to be a soon-to-be-mother of two sons. Nick appeared in some of the pics, standing alongside Abby as she held her baby bump.
"Our dearest sons — my miracle babies...Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy," she wrote. "I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy."
She continued, "That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose. Your Dad and I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you - is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both."
On June 14, 2021, Abby shared a candid clip confirming the birth of her and Nick's twins.
"June 14th, 2021. Welcome to the world Zion Mixolydian Cannon & Zillion Heir Cannon," the star wrote accompanying the image of her and the two children. Fans were quick to share their excitement for Abby's newfound motherhood, but it appears Nick was aware that even more was afoot in the near future, telling fans to "stay tuned" for even more baby-related details.
Nick just had his seventh child with model Alyssa Scott.
Nick seems to have been a busy man on the babymaking front.
Former Wild 'N Out model Alyssa Scott recently announced the birth of NIck's seventh child, named Zen Cannon. She posted to Instagram for the happy occasion — also revealing that the child was born on June 23, 2021. If you ask us, Nick may be very well trying to create a mini Cannon army.
News of a seventh child for Nick was first hinted at in a May Instagram post, in which the gorgeous model posted a sideways picture of her in a mirror showing off a rather large baby bump. But what really got social media talking was her caption.
"Zen S. Cannon," she wrote.
Her short caption served as the first confirmation that she was indeed expecting a child with the Wild 'N Out creator.
The news was then further confirmed on Father's Day, when Alyssa posted a sweet message followed by a picture of her and Nick.
Alyssa's post to Instagram celebrating the birth of son Zen did not tag Nick, nor has he publicly acknowledged the children on social media yet. Regardless, it's clear Alyssa is thrilled, and her caption on the post reads, "I will love you for eternity," along with the baby's birth date.
Nick Cannon loves being a dad.
Before Golden's birth, Nick said he was eager to have more kids. In an interview with ABC News, Nick said that they brought joy to his life.
"I'm not against it. I talk about that all the time. I love children. Everybody knows that," he said. "Whether it's having more of my own, or adopting, whatever, I love that process. Kids kind of bring that vibrant side [out] of me so whenever I can be a part of that process I'm with it."
Congrats to Nick and his growing family!
