Nick Cannon is having his own personal baby boom in 2022. Before welcoming his eighth child with model Bre Tiesi earlier this month, Cannon was cohosting “Entertainment Tonight” with Nischelle Turner on July 14 when he teased, “the stork is on the way.” When Turner asked how many babies the stork will be bringing this year, Cannon played coy, but ultimately said, “You would be safe to bet on three [more children] in 2022.”
Tiesi announced the arrival of their son on Instagram on July 25. “I did it. An all natural unmedicated home birth. This was the most humbling / limit pushing yet awakening and completely empowering experience,” she wrote. I can’t thank my team enough for delivering my son safely. This experience has changed me forever and I couldn’t of asked for a more amazing and supportive partner. Daddy showed the f up for us.. I couldn’t of done it without you. 💙 I can’t believe he’s here 🤗.” Tiesi also shared a YouTube video documenting her pregnancy journey and delivery.
The first of the three additional children’s births was announced on Sept. 15. Model and photographer Lanisha Cole shared the news on Instagram that she and Cannon welcomed a daughter, Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, into the world on Sept. 14.
As for the other two babies that are on the way, Cannon and Brittany Bell announced they were expecting their third child together on Aug. 24. Additionally, DJ Abby De La Rosa, the mother of Cannon’s twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, is also expecting — but she hasn’t confirmed whether or not the former Nickelodeon star is the father this time around.
Cannon explained to his “ET” cohost Turner that he likes to let the mothers of his children make announcements in their own time. “I allow the women in my life to kind of share their news on their own, because then it doesn’t make it look like I’m trying to get publicity. When they’re ready to speak on who and what and where, I support . . . As we know, we should allow women to speak on their bodies, and men should say nothing!”
Cannon is now the father of nine children. In addition to his son with Tiesi, his twins with De La Rosa, and his new daughter with Cole, he shares his two oldest children, boy-girl twins, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; and he has a son and a daughter with Brittany Bell. In December 2021, Cannon’s infant son Zen, whom he shared with model Alyssa Scott, died of a brain tumor.
