Nick's relationship with Mariah may be his most famous, but she's not his only baby mama.

"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."
