Nick Cannon posted photos of his many babies and children: ‘True happiness’

NickCannon1
Nick Cannon had three sons last month and four children in the last year from three different women. Nick has stated that he is on a quest of expanding his family and many people have been questioning his tactics. Recently a member of the group The City Girls told Nick to wrap it up after he stated he could have gotten more women pregnant if he wanted (eww). I guess Nick has been experiencing some backlash over his love life so on Monday, Nick shared some pictures spending time with his seven children. All seven of them. Below are a few more details from US Weekly:

“The gang,” the Masked Singer host, 40, captioned Instagram Story photos of his and ex-wife Mariah Carey’s 10-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with his and Brittany Bell’s son, Golden, 4, and daughter, Powerful, 7 months. “It’s [i]ncredible.”

After showing some “sisterly love,” the California native shared a video of himself carrying Powerful on his chest. “Flying kites with my kids is the most euphoric and joyful experience of life,” the actor wrote. “True happiness.”

[Cannon] was married to Carey, 51, from 2008 to 2016, and the former couple have been coparenting since their split. “We got our egos and this selfish behavior [but] when you put your children first, you understand that it’s all unconditional love,” Cannon exclusively told Us Weekly in April 2019. “All that other stuff just falls apart. I always want what’s best for my children.”

I don’t know why this feels like a PR stunt on Nick’s part but it does. If you are going to make these sort of “interesting” choices for your life, you don’t owe anyone an explanation. Stand by choices with your whole chest Nick. With that being said, these children are absolutely adorable and I am glad that he spending time with them, whether its PR or not. I do like how mature he and Mariah handle co-parenting and I am hoping he will be able to strike the same chord with his other babies’ mamas otherwise this will eventually turn into a sh*t show. I wish nothing but the best for those children because they deserve two very devoted parents and I hope Nick is willing and able to give that to his children. I also hope, no judgment, that Nick gets it together and stops doing drive-bys with his sperm.

    It’s nice that he flew kites with them once but there is no way you can be a present parent to that many children that live in at least 5 different homes in 5 different cities. These kids are going to grow up effectively fatherless, this has nothing to do with “unconditional love” or putting anyone first except for his own ego and desire to spread his genetics.

    • Oy_Hey says:

      this – its great that they have singular memories with their dad but what about the day to day? I would never say that folks need to stay married or in a relationship to effectively co-parent but I would also never imagine trying to co-parent 7 kids with 4-5 different folks in 4-5 different households.

      Just think of basic stuff, like holidays? Do all the kids come to him and miss out on their other family that day? Four of them are born in the same year and will graduate from school and maybe college at the same time. What do you do?

    • Seraphina says:

      I have to agree, sadly. There is no way he can be there for all his kids and that sucks. The first pic really made me smile but it’s sad to think he won’t be around.
      Also, these women should have thought about the implications of sleeping with him. He obviously has a reputation for this and even though he may be reckless that doesn’t excuse them. I have raised kids and continue to do so. Parenting doesn’t stop at 18 – it’s a life long commitment. And being a single parent must be a tough mountain to climb because it’s difficult enough doing it with two. My hats off to all the single parents out there.

      • Amanda says:

        I wonder if these women just don’t care? They may have just liked the idea of having a celebrity’s baby.

    • superashes says:

      Yeah. He is a complete narcissist. Full stop.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        He and Jamie Foxx, who has 10 children!! You guys need to stop spreading your seeds everywhere. These double digit children will grow up without a strong relationship with their fathers. You shouldn’t have children unless you are willing to be present everyday! This is extremely immature and selfish on too many levels.

      • Cary says:

        I suppose Mariah Carey is paying?

      • Oya says:

        @BothSidesNow – you mean Eddie Murphy? Jamie Foxx only has two children

    • LilacMaven says:

      Especially, given how close those children are in age. I’m one of four children. I have three half brothers from my Dad’s prior marriage. But we were spaced out in age. So in the end the time my Dad spent with me didn’t take anything away from them when they were growing up. If we’d all been born within 18 months of each other – forget about it. Even the most devoted parent only has so many hours in a day to spend with anyone.

  2. Joanna says:

    Must be nice to pop in and out whenever it’s convenient. Too bad women don’t have that same option. Those kids deserve a full time father.

    • Pusspants says:

      ^^This all day!

    • terra says:

      I bet he’s a fun dad . . . when he’s around. Which, with the myriad of jobs he has, can’t be all that often. You know, the jobs he didn’t get fired from for being an anti-Semitic jerk.

      He’s definitely not the bedtime stories even when you’re exhausted, bath time ritual creating, bake sale participant, homework savior kind of dad. How could he be with his attention split in so many directions? How is it possible to split your care evenly in this kind of situation?

      If some of those kids don’t grow up bitterly resenting others amongst them it’ll be a miracle.

      • Amanda says:

        He’s probably more like a “fun uncle” than an actual father.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Not only that, they will come out with serious abandonment issues, and they will all need so serious therapy!!

      • Cary says:

        Some of his kids will later tell that he was never there and never advised … deadbeat dad … no more contact … toxic parent etc. He will get what he deserves because children can be merciless.

      • terra says:

        Fun uncle is probably a good description, yeah.

        Well, here’s hoping Uncle Nick still has enough money left over for when the youngest five need the aforementioned therapy.

  3. Liz version 700 says:

    Serious question. What happened to this guy? He went from a normalish star to wow out there overnight.

    • tealily says:

      I know. Is it a COVID thing? I just don’t get it.

      • Chic says:

        Apparently his lupus is to the point that he may need donor of some sort… hence the kids.Black Twitter

    • Sam the Pink says:

      I think Nick got into some rabbit hole conspiracy stuff. Like he’s big into Dr. Sebi, he promoted the melanin theory, etc. In his mind, he’s like a king and these women should be honored to bear his children.

      Though I have to notice, that for a man who seems so proud of his blackness, the women he chooses all are certainly trending rather…uh…light?

  4. Imara219 says:

    Good for him 🤷🏾‍♀️

  5. Size Does Matter says:

    Just wait till they’re teenagers, Nick.

  6. britt mezher says:

    I’d like to invite Nick to Australia. I do vasectomies for a living. My specialist boss and I have worked for over 11 years together. He’s been specialising in venous disease and no scalpel vasectomies for 20 years at least.

    Mate, come on over, bring some stranded Aussies with you. Have a vasectomy, then you can shag as much as you want. No harm done.

    • ME says:

      He’ll probably impregnate a few women on the plane and during any lay-overs…and in the hotel…and maybe even in the office right before getting the vasectomy.

  7. Julia K says:

    As long as he accepts full financial support and co parents these children this is on him and the women who are the sperm recipients.

  8. Mel says:

    Of course he and Mariah can co-parent effectively, she has money and doesn’t have to rely on or ask him for anything. Of course he’s all good with this, he isn’t doing any of the heavy lifting when it comes to actually RAISING these children, that will be on the Mothers. He’ll stop being all sweetness and light though as soon as they start asking him for more money than he’s willing to give.

  9. ME says:

    But honestly why does he feel the need to spread his seed everywhere? Instead of impregnating all these women you should have spent that time questioning your racist ideology towards Jewish people. Jacka$$. I feel sorry for those kids.

  10. J ferber says:

    Yes, I don’t understand him (though I always liked him). Remember, he was one of the few famous black celebrity males to verbally rebuke Chris Brown for beating Rhianna (“I just don’t think a man should ever put his hands on a woman”). I know Jay Z refused to clap for Brown at an awards show. In any case, I wonder if Nick is having a mid-life crisis. Now would be great for him to donate his time and money to causes and charities that would make a better world for his (and all children).

    • Maria says:

      He also said Planned Parenthood is responsible for genocide.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        You have got to be kidding me, what an absolutely disgusting human being he is. He certainly needs a good kick in the head to straighten himself out. Plus his kids will grow up resenting the hell out of him and permanently unable to have healthy relationships.

  11. TeeMajor says:

    I know Nick has a the worse case of lupus that there is, he probably thinks he will not be around,
    he is not thinking rational.

    I found this on the internet:

    During an appearance on ABC-TV’s Good Morning America, actor, comedian, and musician Nick Cannon announced that he has lupus-related kidney disease, called lupus nephritis. Lupus is a disease that can affect any organ system and kidney involvement is one of the most serious manifestations of the disease.

    He is very rich and hopefully he provides for all of his kids, its not normal and I wonder what his parents think of all of this.

    • Ann says:

      As appalled I am by how irresponsible he is being, I think it’s possible that the disease and the medication he is taking for it is impacting his judgment.

      Lupus is inflammatory, and often treated with Prednisone and other steroidal drugs. A long course of that can cause mania, a sense of elation and infallibility. My husband’s grandmother had Lupus and was on it for years. JFK was on it for Addison’s disease, at a time when people didn’t really understand the side effects, which are significant.

  12. Lola says:

    The lupus thing actually makes it next level horrible because lupus is a GENETIC disease. So he’s suffering so badly with lupus he just wants to make as many new lives as possible that might have to suffer the same way???

  13. MangoAngelesque says:

    He’s having kids faster than he can come up with actual names for them.
