Nick Cannon ‘forgets’ his daughter Onyx when listing his kids; her mother seems to respond

Nick Cannon has had 12 children with six women. He had five children with five women in 2022 alone. He’d already other children with three of those five ladies, but one of the other two first-time moms was a surprise because no one really knew they were expecting until the birth announcement. Nick and LaNisha Cole welcomed daughter Onyx Ice in September. But Nick forgot about her when Howard Stern challenged him to list his kids on the show last week. Jeez.

LaNisha Cole is celebrating all the love around her little girl.

The documentary filmmaker, 41, shared photos of daughter Onyx Ice on her Instagram Story Thursday, showing how much the 7-month-old little girl is growing.

“My whole world… the most beautiful little girl,” the mom wrote. “I will do everything I can every single day to make sure she knows how special she is and how much I love and adore her.”

Cole then shared a bunch of photos with her little girl, showing her enjoying time with all the different people that love her, including members of her family and Cole’s boyfriend, artist Brian Paul Kuba.

Hours later, she shared another message talking about what it’s like to “have your life play out in front of an audience.”

“It’s not normal to have your life play out in front of an audience, but this is the age we live in. That being said … no person’s path is linear,” she began. “There’s going to be blind curves, peaks, valleys, and sometimes we make wrong turns or run into dead ends. Simply correct course and get back on your forward moving path.”

“I pray every day for strength, guidance, and peace. Regardless of where I’m at on my path, I know that God’s got me. And I’ve got Onyx,” she continued.

After taking another break, the former Price is Right model shared photos celebrating Onyx turning 7 months. In one photo, she smiles at Onyx from over Kuba’s shoulder as he holds the little girl and smiles at the camera.

Cole then shared a message with “all the moms out there,” urging them to “Take care of your heart with the same love and patience you have for your babies. It’s not always easy but we were built for this.”

Days earlier, Onyx’s dad, Nick Cannon, 42, appeared on The Howard Stern Show where the host challenged the father of 12 to name all of his kids. In doing so, he left out Onyx’s name.

“You threw me off because I was going in order!” Cannon said in his defense.

I’m not surprised that Nick forgot someone because 12 is a lot and he seems like a jerk. He’s probably spending more time at the houses where he has more than one kid, unlike LaNisha and Onyx’s home. LaNisha seemingly responded with a subtle drag, saying she’d make her daughter feel special and reiterating their bond and her journey as a single mother. LaNisha has a boyfriend that she’s been posting about, Brian Paul Kuba. So maybe Nick forgot on purpose. He has said in the past his partners couldn’t have their own partners if they wanted support from him, while he can do whatever he wants. I did a deep dive into LaNisha’s Instagram (she is gorgeous) and it appears she and Nick have been over for a bit. She’s been friends with Brian for a while and has been posting pics with him since May 2022. In December, she posted about being a single mom, so there was some sort of fallout with Nick. And she posted confirming her relationship with Brian on Valentine’s Day. Perhaps it’s a friends to lovers situation? Good for them. It looks Brian is really good to LaNisha and sweet with Onyx and both are getting the attention they deserve.

    I love that Nick Cannon is under the impression that he gets to decide the terms under which he supports his children. I hope this woman has initiated legal proceedings to make sure her daughter is getting everything to which she’s entitled.

    • molly says:

      Especially a 41 year old woman with a career. I mean, good for him for not having babies with women half his age, but that’s a grownass adult, sir.

    • Malificent says:

      Yeah, I’m pretty sure the State of California doesn’t care who any of these women date.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly. Saying he won’t support them if the mother’s date someone? Yeah buddy, that’s not how it works.

  2. Poppy says:

    Nick Cannon seems like an irresponsible knob.

  3. A says:

    I don’t know what kind of custody and support agreements these women have with Cannon but I find it just very odd not one of them has gone to court over his clownf-kery

    • Swack says:

      Believe at one time he stated that if the babies’ mother got with someone else he would cut them off. She has a boyfriend, therefore she has probably been cut off financially.

      • molly says:

        That’s not how child support works. Things like future marital status can instigate a change, but the father doesn’t get to just decide on payments out of threats or punishments.

        But like “A” said, that assumes things have been made official through the courts. Given all the factors in play, it really is shocking that nothing has gotten messy over money.

        I’d loooooove to know the behind the scenes set up to manage all these relationships with these children. There’s a financial piece, legal piece, visitation piece, healthcare piece, communication piece, PR piece, and more. Is there a shared google calendar? What’s the folder structure of the paperwork? Is there a mailing list with the various mothers?

  4. Coco says:

    So because LaNisha moved on is in a relationship, Nick is disowning Onyx’s? Because it sure feels like it and I wouldn’t put it pass Nick to do so.

  5. JW says:

    Let’s call things by their names. Deadbeat dad. Financial abuse.
    This man is an abuser. This woman admits she’s made mistakes, as have we all, understandably doesn’t regret having her child, and is now dealing with escaping a situation of abuse from a man who exerts control through financial manipulation.

    Nick Cannon is an utter creep.

  6. Sass says:

    I can’t stand that this guy acts like his children are the punchline of a joke. Tbh it’s more like reading a word problem in math class which is decidedly unfunny.

    For real, what an ass.

  7. HeyKay says:

    NC you are an idiot.
    And all the babies and assorted Moms are just in a tough spot.
    What could this women be thinking? I have no idea.

  8. Chaine says:

    What an absolutely gorgeous baby! I’m so sad for her that her dad is absent and isn’t treating her the same as his other children. I want to say she’s better off without him, but for a child it will never feel that way, she will feel abandoned and unloved and it will affect her her whole life. I hope Nick Cannon gets his act together so he doesn’t leave this little girl of any of his other children in emotional distress or financial need.

  9. tealily says:

    My dad comes from a big family (same two parents), and they made up a little song so they could remember everyone’s name without leaving anyone out.

    • Debbie says:

      That’s what I was thinking of too. That Nick Cannon should make up a pneumonic with a word or phrase comprised of the first letters of all his children’s names. For example, he can use the words “Get vasectomy.” See, it’s got 12 letters and the letter “O” can stand for “Onyx.” Simple.

  10. Sass says:

    Coming back to say that Onyx is adorable, LaNisha is gorgeous, and wow ummm Brian is an upgrade. He is HOT. Wishing them all happiness!!!!

  11. SIde Eye says:

    Shallow comment first: LaNisha is absolutely gorgeous. Goodness she is stunning, and her baby girl got her amazing genes.

    You guys know how I feel about this community peen and his financial abuse and general dumbf*ckery. I can’t with Nick.

    Brian is a hell of a upgrade and appears to genuinely love Onyx.

  12. Shauggy says:

    Hoping that she can’t share her story because she has initiated legal proceedings against him for child support. 🤞🏻

  13. Mrs. S says:

    Nick Cannon is ridiculous to say the least, but to be fair, he never said he would cut any of the children off if their mother chose to date someone else. He would cut off taking care of the mother. I don’t see a problem with this. It isn’t his responsibility to take care of these grown ass women. It is absolutely his responsibility to support the children he has created. I think you guys are willfully misconstruing it.

    • Coco says:

      No, we’re really not and he not supporting any of these women either. You seem willfully ignorant to the fact that if you have a child with someone who has wealthy you are legally responsible to make sure the child is kept in the same lifestyle at both parents’ homes.

      Your probably delusional enough to believe that Nick leaving out Onyx name was a accident.
