The Masked Singer host isn’t taking the jab to heart, and in a brief chat with TMZ in Beverly Hills on Sunday night (March 12), referred to Kimmel as his “man.”
“I heard about that,” Cannon said when asked about Kimmel’s joke. “It’s hilarious. I created Wild N’ Out — I can hear jokes all day long. Yeah, Kimmel’s my man.”
The interviewer then asked Cannon if there was a “cap to how many kids” he wanted to have, to which he jokingly asked what she was doing later that night before shutting his Sprinter van’s door.
Jimmy Kimmel turned Nick Cannon’s fertility into a punchline when it came to James Cameron’s big-budget blockbuster Avatar: The Way of Water being a smash at the box office.
“It’s the most expensive movie ever made. Disney spent $2 billion on this movie. Just to break even, all of Nick Cannon’s kids had to see Avatar four times,” Kimmel quipped, poking fun at his sizeable brood.
The Wild N’ Out creator’s dozen began in 2011 when he had twins with Mariah Carey, and went on to have another eight in a two-year span with five different women (Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Bre Tiesi, LaNisha Cole and Alyssa Scott).
It doesn’t sound like Nick Cannon has any desire to stop his baby-making ways either as he’s leaving his final child count’s fate in God’s house.
“God decides when we’re done [laughs] but I believe I definitely got my hands full,” he told ET last month. “And I’m so focused. I’m locked in. But when I’m 85, you never know. I might.
“Everybody thinks it’s time management. It’s energy management,” he told ET. “[Because] once we’re all aligned, the flow is a lot easier. If there’s any kind of low frequencies or dissension in there that’s what messes up the scheduling.
“As long as we’re all on the same page and we all got the same goal — to be the best parents we could possibly be — that works and then the scheduling is the scheduling.”
Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed their latest bundle of joy in December. Scott took to Instagram to share a video documenting Halo Marie’s arrival, who was born on December 14.
The clip shows Cannon in the delivery room patiently waiting for her to arrive, and it’s not too long before she is put in his arms, after which he exclaims: “It’s a girl!”
