Incoming! Nick Cannon’s kids have been making constant headlines this year (and the year before!). The Wild ‘N Out star keeps on making babies with his baby mamas and no one is stopping him.
So, why does he have so many children? In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he candidly explained why he’s “blessed” with making his babies. “Think about it, you can’t be like, ‘No I’m done.’ Like what if God says, ‘No you not,'”I come from a big family, I have several siblings, being raised in an unorthodox family by my grandparents at times, I’ve experienced such a wide range of upbringing that I have such a love and passion for kids and family. I want a big family too,” he said. “The Lord has blessed me with what I asked, but ask and you shall receive.”
With more than 10 children, Nick is super supportive of all of his kids and their mothers. They get my full attention when I’m not working,” he told the outlet. “And that’s the beauty of it because it kind of keeps me out of trouble. It’s either work or playing with my kids.”
Here’s a breakdown of all of Nick Cannon’s kids and their baby mamas.

Just because my marriage was over didn’t mean I couldn’t continue my family.” He gushed about Brittany as a potential mother at the time. “I wanted it to be with someone who was solid, spiritual and had the same views,” he continued. “She’s been in my life.

Mom: Alyssa Scott
Zen Cannon was Nick’s seventh child who was born on June 23, 2021, to mother Alyssa Scott. Zen died in December 2021, after being diagnosed with brain cancer and a subsequent tumor.
Nick talked about how they found out the news on his daytime talk show The Nick Cannon Show. “I really wanted to take him to the doctor to get the breathing and sinus checked out,” he recalled. “So we thought it would be a routine process. And we went in just to check his sinuses, and they actually said his sinuses were pretty cool, but by the time we found out that, he had another condition. And I think it was called, if I’m not mistaken, fluid that was building up in his head, and that was the cause [of] his head starting to get big. When we found out it was more, they called it a malignant tumor in his head. Immediately, he had to have surgery. Brain surgery.” He then praised Alyssa for her hard work as a mother. “Alyssa was just the strongest woman I have ever seen,” he said during the time. “Never had an argument, never was angry. She was emotional when she needed to be but was always the best mom and continues to be the best mom possible [to her daughter from a previous relationship].”
In honor of their late son, Nick and Alyssa created Zen’s Light foundation with the goal of helping to find a cure for pediatric cancer.

Each one is special,” he said.
In an interview with E! News Daily Pop, Tiesi opened up about her and Cannon’s relationship. “I just respect and love who he is so much as a person, that when I thought about, ‘Do I want my son to be this person? Look at your characteristics, look at your personality, look at how you treat people.’ That’s what is so much more important to me than anything. And he treats me amazing, so that’s all I look at.”
Birthday: September 2022
Mom: LaNisha Cole
Onyx Ice Cole Cannon is Nick Cannon’s ninth child. The America’s Got Talent host posted on Instagram on September 15, 2022, that model LaNisha Cole gave birth to a healthy baby girl. He captioned the post, “Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON… Once again Today I am in Awe of the Devine Feminine! God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an Angel here on earth. I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities.” He continued, “Hopefully I can teach Onyx the same, to not let others shame or ridicule her with their outside opinions, because when they do they are only projecting their own harsh experiences, pain and social programming onto her unblemished beauty. As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children.”
