And he’s right – at this point, ONLY GOD can stop him from having more children.
Speaking on Dr. Laura Berman’s The Language of Love podcast, the TV show host called his babies ‘miracles’ and said he leaves that stuff up to God to decide.
“I lend that type of stuff to God. Those are miracles,” he said. “I’ve never heard that clarity, but I’ve heard ‘Yo, you’re going to be a father of many. You’re a great influence, your lineage, your offspring are going to do great things.'”
When asked how many more kids he actually want procreate, the 42-year-old said, “The more, the merrier!”
When Laura Berman asked Cannon, “Did God tell you to have all these babies?”
He said, “Only God can let me know when I’m done. As much as I was open to every single child that I have, I can’t say the majority of them were planned.”
“If you would have told me in 2012 when I was still married and just diagnosed with Lupus that 10 years from now… that I would have 12 children, I would be like f**k out of here! There’s no way in the world that I would ever plan that,” the dad of 12 added.
The Masked Singer shares twelve children with six different women – two with his ex-wife, Mariah Carey, three with model and dancer Brittany Bell, three with former radio personality Abby De La Rosa, Two with the model Alyssa Scott, and one each with Bre Tiesi and LaNisha Cole.
Last year, during an interview with Billboard, the comedian and host of The Nick Cannon Show was asked if he wanted to have more children.
“I don’t know, man. I have no idea. I think I’m good right now!” he replied.
Speaking of his big family, the 42-year-old said, “That’s my No. 1 priority, obviously. I wake up being a father thinking about my kids, and everything else comes after that. My kids are definitely the creative force in all that I do. They’re the funniest, most innovative, best questions…every project I’m working on now is through their eyes.”
In May, the Love Don’t Cost a Thing star slammed criticism about him being a deadbeat dad and said he has been ‘villainized’ but is at a place where he doesn’t care what people think of him.
“I’ve been villainized,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “I hear all the time: ‘You can’t be present for all those children.’ So therefore I get this deadbeat dad title.”
The 42-year-old TV host, actor, and comedian, who recently claimed he has got ‘super sperm’ due to which he has 12 children despite practicing birth control, added that he does not care what people know about him at this stage.
“Right now, the narrative is, ‘He has a bunch of kids.’ But I’m really at a place now where I don’t care what people know. I’d rather just operate. It’s more about really being a good person instead of telling people you’re a good person.”
“When you think about my lifestyle, I have to generate at least $100 million a year,” he continued. “Everybody thinks Ryan Seacrest has tons of money. I do everything that he does times 10. Well, not times 10 — times three. Because he does a lot.”
As for why he has so many children, Nick claimed that the women he shares his children with wanted to have kids, so he made them happy by fulfilling their wishes.
“A lot of them are in the same age group. And I just wanted to give them what they desired. I kept saying, “I can handle it.’”
