Despite having 12 children, Nick Cannon says he’s opened to more
Nick Cannon dished about his modern family and revealed he is open to adding more children to his brood of 12 while appearing on a new podcast.
The 42-year-old Wild ‘N Out host spoke with Dr. Laura Berman on her The Language of Love podcast, where he discussed how having a dozen kids — whom he shares with six different women — was a calling from God.
After Berman stated that several of the women were on ‘full on birth control and gotten pregnant’ and joked that he has ‘magic sperm’ Nick replied, ‘I lend that type of stuff to God. Those are miracles.’
Cannon and Berman also joked about his story resembling that of Abraham in the Bible, with Cannon adding, ‘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.”‘
The entertainer also shared he’s not opposed to having even more children, telling Berman, ‘The more the merrier!’
At one point Berman asked, ‘Did God tell you to have all these babies?’
Canon said that he’s gotten in trouble for saying that before and shared that when people will ask him if he’s done having children, his response is, ‘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,’ he went on.
‘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!’
He added, ‘There’s no way in the world that I would ever plan that.’
