Nick Cannon’s infamous baby-making status may be over! After fathering twelve children with six different women, the Nickelodeon alum is finally considering a proper family plan.
From his award-winning, multi-hyphenated performance career to his open lifestyle, the rapper-turned-actor’s name is easily recognized by many. In recent years, his conceptual feats have been the focus of rumors and criticism.
Despite frequent backlash for his large brood, the 42-year-old continues to air his highs and lows publicly. In a recent unfiltered interview, the San Diego native admitted he’s retiring his bottom half to be a better father.
Nick Cannon seemingly hints at no new baby and says he wants to treasure his children
The “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” star appeared on the latest episode of Dr. Laura Berman’s “The Language of Love” podcast. The relationship therapist shared an excerpt from the heart-to-heart conversation Instagram.
As you can see in the recording, the media personality asked the father of the twelve children about his future baby-making plans. The “Dr. Uncovered” with Laura Berman wondered if there was a place for a “vasectomy” in the presenter’s life, and in response to his own question, he claimed that there was none.
However, the ‘Drumline’ actor denied his views and revealed that he had considered filing the case. The San Diego native says she wanted to be more “intentional” with her kids instead of having babies without proper planning.
The Howard University graduate said: “You never know. I definitely thought deeply. I don’t want to be careless anymore. I want to be much more intentional about life, especially when it comes to creating life.”
The NAACP Image Award winner admitted at the time, “Because I love all my kids, but I probably wasn’t on purpose,” adding that she left her children’s conception up to fate. “I was kind of like, ‘Oh, if it happens, it’s amazing. God’s miracle.”
After welcoming twelve children in this way, the 42-year-old man realized that he could no longer bring children into the world without spending quality moments with them. “Because you’re not making money, you’re not making time,” Cannon noted.
“So I want to be intentional about all of their lives, and I don’t want to spread anybody any thinner than they already are,” the multi-hyphenated star stated, seemingly hinting that she won’t be having any new babies.
This isn’t the first time the “Real Husbands of Hollywood” alum has opened up about her thoughts on a vasectomy. The San Diego native revealed months earlier almost went through the process in 2022.
On “The Howard Stern Show,” the TV personality explained that she received a vasectomy consultation last year, shortly after announcing the conception of her eighth child. However, his decision was influenced by social pressure.
“It’s a scary thing,” Cannon lamented when asked about the consultation. “I felt under pressure. I felt like the world was trying to get me to have a vasectomy. I don’t work well under pressure. My body, my choice.”
The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award winner added that she received vasectomy advice from strangers. The host noted that he might be walking down the street when a random person stops him and says, “Man, you gotta go get ripped?”
The “Gigolo” rapper first expressed his distaste for people’s thoughts on his body during a live CNN New Year’s Eve special. on December 31, 2022. When co-host Andy Cohen asked the 42-year-old to consider getting a medallion, Cannon sourly replied: “Is that what you want me to get? This is my body, my choice!”
The Black Reel Award nominee claimed that her children are God’s miracles
During her interview with Berman, the Up All Night star spoke candidly about adopting twelve children. According to the multi-hyphenate star, her children were gifts from God. The sweet revelation came when the love therapist joked about Cannon’s “magic sperm.”
The podcaster gushed about the TV personality’s baby-making skills, noting that she’s managed to get some of her partners pregnant while on birth control. In response to that claim, the “Wild ‘N Out” host humbly said, “I lend things like that to God. These are miracles.”
Citing her faith, the “In the Bedroom with Dr. Laura Berman” star compared the San Diego native’s big brood to Abraham, noting that the biblical character had several children.
Cannon responded, “I never heard that light, but I heard, ‘Well, you’re going to be a father to many.’ You are a great influence; your lineage and your descendants will do great things.”
