Nick Cannon has become social media fodder over the past several weeks for fathering four children in less than six months. In December 2020, he welcomed daughter Powerful Queen, his second child with Brittany Bell, then twins with Abby De La Rosa on June 14 and another son named Zen with model Alyssa Scott born just nine days later.
Cannon already shares 9-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey and is also the father to a 3-year-old son named Golden with Bell. Judging by the frequency of each child, one might think Cannon forgot what a condom is but according to the Power 106 radio host, his growing fleet of children is very much by design.
During an interview with City Girls rappers JT and Yung Miami on Wednesday (July 7), Cannon asked if they had any advice to give him to which JT said, “Wrap it up.”
Cannon replied, “Wrap it up, like, hurry up and wrap it up?” JT reiterated, “Wrap it up as in wrap it up and protect yourself.”
He then shouted, “I’m having these kids on purpose! I didn’t have no accident!”
Cannon explained in his defense there were “a lot of people that I could’ve gotten pregnant that I didn’t,” again suggesting having so many kids was a conscious choice.
Yung Miami was seemingly even more understanding and simply blurted out, “YOLO [You Only Live Once],” to which Cannon said, “There it is. You only live once.”
From there, the topic shifted to online trolls, which Cannon certainly has dealt with during the course of his lengthy career — whether it’s coming from Eminem or just random people on the internet.
The news of Cannon’s seventh child definitely sent Twitter into overdrive and found people making remarks such as “Nick Cannon’s having a baby every 2-3 business days” and “Nick Cannon has officially had 4 babies in 6 months, 3 of which were born all in the month of June, record breaking numbers here… This gotta be womb warfare!!!”
Cannon’s baby-making spree even earned him a new nickname – “The Womb Raider.”
Meanwhile, City Girls just dropped their new Missy Elliott-directed video for “Twerkulator.” The single originally arrived in May and peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 19 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart.
