Nick CannonThe tribe just keeps growing and growing — and we’re just trying to keep up.
On September 14, the masked singer and Wild ‘N Out host, 41, has announced the arrival of her ninth child, daughter Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, with model LaNisha Cole. With 10th (with Brittany Bell) and maybe 11th (Abby De La Rosa is pregnant againbut fatherhood is a secret) babies on the way, we thought it was too late (wink!) for a breakdown of all the Cannon kids and their moms.
So, let’s meet the Canons…
9. Onyx Ice Cole Cannon (born September 2022)
Lucky No. 9 – a little girl nicknamed Onyx – was born September 14, 2022 in Cannon and former The price is right model and photographer LaNisha Cole. This is their first child together. Cannon shared a photo with mum and baby moments after the child was born, vowing to “protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my ability”. He also called on critics to direct any negative comments about his open relationships — and multiple baby mamas — at him and not his partners.
“At this time of celebration and jubilee, I wish to cut off all low vibrational frequencies and only rejoice with the highest class of civilization that is truly aligned with our purpose here in this dimension,” Cannon wrote on Instagram. “I have given up trying to define myself to the world or society, but instead I do the work to heal and grow into the infinite Being that God has ordained me to be. I hope to be able to teach the same to Onyx, not to let others shame or ridicule her with their outward opinions, for when they do, they only project their own harsh experiences, pain, and social programming onto her unblemished beauty. “
He added that he was “pretty tough-skinned” and had always been an “open book”, but noted that “not everyone in my family has the same level of strength. So I pray and I ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism onto ME and not the loving and precious mothers of my children.” He went on to call Cole “one of the most innocent, peaceful, non-confrontational souls I have ever seen, and only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood.”
8. Legendary Love Cannon (Born June 2022)
Cannon’s eighth child – a baby boy with the big name, size and meaning, Legendary – was his first with the model/Wild ‘N’ Out usual/sell sunset featured Bre Tiesi.

Tiesi, who was previously married to NFL QB Johnny Manziel, said Cannon – or “Dad”, as she called him – “showed the f for us [during the natural home birth]. I couldn’t have done it without you.” She revealed that she tried to naturally induce labor at 41 weeks with “lots of sexy time,” so the baby could be born before Cannon had to leave town. News the couple have been expecting – via gender reveal party photos – resurfaced a month after he swore he had become single. His unsuccessful attempt at celibacy came on the advice of his therapist after welcoming four children with three different women in less than a year.

De La Rosa said having a child with Cannon “was something we manifested” for a while before learning that they were expecting twins. She shared that they had already suffered a pregnancy loss the previous year. Of their relationship, she said they became friends after meeting while hosting radio shows at rival stations – and soon friends “turn[ed] with family.”
4. Mighty Queen Cannon (born December 2020)
Cannon became a father for the fourth time after welcoming a daughter with a very empowering name, Powerful Queen, on December 24, 2020.

Cannon’s third offspring, also with Bell, is his golden child. The boy was born on February 22, 2017. As the boy started second grade – aged just 5 – Cannon said he took ‘no credit’ for his intelligence, saying he ‘got his genius from his mum !”
1. and 2. Monroe and Moroccan Scott Cannon (born April 2011)
“Baby Dems” need no introduction, do they? Cannon’s first set of twins are with his then-wife, Mariah Carey. The couple suffered a pregnancy loss before having their babies on April 30, 2011, and audiences were so excited to see them that they were introduced to the world on their own. 20/20 special. As for their names, Moroccan was inspired by the decor on the top floor of Carey’s New York apartment, where Cannon proposed; Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, one of Carey’s inspirations. The couple, who separated in 2014 and divorced two years later, have remained friendly after the split and have hit the mat with their kids since splitting. cannon said in July 2022, “I will never have a love like the one I had with Mariah…It was literally like a fairy tale.”
However, it’s unclear how Carey feels about her baby-making spree. In November 2021, Carey gave a very Mariah response when asked if Roc and Roe would spend the holidays with their half-siblings. “Is this a step? she replied, adding nuance: “I don’t think it’s a stage if you’re not married to the person.” She went on to say, “I don’t know about that,” with a laugh. “It’s a different interview for you.” As in response, Cannon job a Christmas photo of Roc and Roe with half-brothers Golden and Powerful Queen. He posted a separate photo of twins Zilly and Zion, seemingly unable to get all six kids together at the same time. Her post also included a throwback to baby Zen.
Cannon announced Bell was expecting their third child when he shared photos from a maternity shoot in August. This will be her 10th child… or will it be?
De La Rosa is also pregnant, first sharing the news in June. She has kept silent about the father’s identity, leading to speculation that it is Cannon. Amid the mystery, she recently job on social media, “Move over to the Kardashians. Generation ‘C’ is taking over, babyyyy.” She also opened up about her open relationship with Cannon, saying“The fact that I’m open in my relationship doesn’t change or take away from the type of mother I am to my kids. I can’t wait for my kids to grow up and be like, ‘Mom and Dad, you got it. all done ‘your way. And I love it.'”
Cannon fueled the gossip, saying: ‘If you thought there were a lot of kids last year…’ and hinting he would top last year’s count – by four births. And joked about the number he has so far, holding balloons with all the different numbers for a photo op and to joke“Anyone have a calculator?”
