Nick Cannon has once again commented on the pressures of splitting his time between his 11 children, this time jokingly comparing himself to Santa Claus.
TMZ‘s cameras caught up with the media mogul while he was serving holiday meals as a volunteer at the Los Angeles Mission on Friday (December 23). While he was accompanied by model Brittany Bell and two of their three children, Cannon revealed that he has no plans on celebrating the holiday with all of his children at once.
Instead, he said, he’ll be traveling to visit each of the kids at their mothers’ homes, which means that he has no less than five more stops to make. Nick Cannon didn’t seem too bothered about the situation though.
“Me and Santa Claus do it together,” he told a reporter when asked how he’d be spending Christmas. “I have the same vibe as Santa Claus, I’m traveling all over.”
Earlier this month, Nick Cannon said that he sometimes feels guilty about not being able to spend more time with his growing family, Today reports.
“Being a father of multiple kids, it’s always the biggest guilt on me is that I don’t get to spend enough time with all my children,” he said during a recent podcast interview. “One ’cause I’m constantly working and two because I’m just spread thin.”
But that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have any intention of continuing to grow his blended family. While he may be satisfied with the number of children he currently has, he’s not sure if any more are on the way.
The soon-to-be father of 12 was recently asked about having more babies after sharing how much inspiration he draws from his children.
“My kids are definitely the creative force in all that I do,” the proud dad said. “They’re the funniest, most innovative, best questions…every project I’m working on now is through their eyes. That’s my number one priority obviously. I wake up being a father thinking about my kids and everything else comes after that.”
As to whether there were more baby Cannons in the works, he replied: “I don’t know, man. I have no idea. I think I’m good right now.”
