Who are Nick Cannon’s baby mamas?
1. Mariah Carey
Nick’s relationship with Mariah may be his most famous, but she’s not his only baby mama. During his marriage to Mariah, the couple had twins together named Monroe and Moroccan Scott in 2011. Monroe is named after Marilyn Monroe, while Moroccan is named after the style of the room where Nick proposed to Mariah. Scott is Nick’s middle name and his grandmother’s maiden name.
The twins were born on the couple’s third wedding anniversary in April 2011.
2. Britanny Bell
After his time with Mariah, Nick Cannon went on to have two kids with Brittany Bell in 2017 and 2020.
In 2017, Nick had his third child, with then-girlfriend Brittany Bell, who is a model. They named the baby Golden “Sagon” Cannon. At the time, Nick shared the news of Golden’s birth on his Instagram page.
“Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!” he wrote in the photo’s caption. “No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! Welcome to Earth Son.”
Brittany then welcomed a daughter with the star in December 2020, Powerful Queen Cannon. She shared the news with fans and well-wishers on Instagram with an emotional post.
In fact, she shared that she gave birth to Powerful via water birth.
3. Abby De La Rosa
Nick and Abby De La Rosa welcomed twins in 2021 — and have another on the way.
While it’s unclear when exactly Nick began dating DJ Abby De La Rosa, Abby shared a slew of photos on April 11, 2021, detailing how lucky she was to be a soon-to-be-mother of two sons. Nick appeared in some of the pics, standing alongside Abby as she held her baby bump.
“Our dearest sons — my miracle babies…Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy,” she wrote. “I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God gives you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy.”
She continued, “That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose. Your Dad and I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you – is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both.”
On June 14, 2021, Abby shared a candid clip confirming the birth of her and Nick’s twins.
“June 14th, 2021. Welcome to the world Zion Mixolydian Cannon & Zillion Heir Cannon,” the star wrote accompanying the image of her and her two children.
Fans were quick to share their excitement for Abby’s newfound motherhood, but it appears Nick was aware that even more was afoot in the near future, telling fans to “stay tuned” for even more baby-related details.
On June 3, 2022, Abby confirmed that she is pregnant via Instagram. She has not yet shared a due date or the sex of the baby.
4. Alyssa Scott
Nick welcomed his seventh child — with Alyssa Scott — in 2021, but tragically, their baby son died that same year.
Former Wild ‘N Out model Alyssa Scott announced the birth of Nick’s seventh child, named Zen Cannon, in July of 2021. She posted to Instagram about the happy occasion — also revealing that the child was born on June 23, 2021.
News of a seventh child for Nick was first hinted at in a May Instagram post, in which the gorgeous model posted a sideways picture of her in a mirror showing off a rather large baby bump. But what really got social media talking was her caption.
“Zen S. Cannon,” she wrote.
Her short caption served as the first confirmation that she was indeed expecting a child with the Wild ‘N Out creator.
The news was then further confirmed on Father’s Day when Alyssa posted a sweet message followed by a picture of her and Nick.
Alyssa’s post on Instagram celebrating the birth of her son Zen did not tag Nick at the time. Regardless, it was clear Alyssa was thrilled, and her caption on the post read, “I will love you for eternity,” along with the baby’s birth date.
Tragically, Nick shared in December 2021 that Zen had died at only 5 months of age. On his eponymous TV show, Nick revealed that Zen had been diagnosed with hydrocephalus as well as a malignant brain tumor. His death occurred after his health took a turn for the worse over Thanksgiving weekend. Nick also praised Alyssa for her strength throughout the tragic experience.
5. Bre Tiesi
Nick welcomed his eighth child with Bre Tiesi in 2022.
Per TMZ, Nick and real estate agent/model Bre Tiesi appeared to host a baby shower in January 2022 to reveal that they are apparently expecting a boy together. In July, Bre officially announced that Legendary Love Cannon was born on June 28.
“It’s still so surreal to me that we MADE this angel,” she later captioned an Instagram pic of the new family. “To look at his precious face and see pieces of us both is the most indescribable feeling.”
The couple both donned shades of white and looked quite loved-up in the pictures, which were taken on a beach.
Bre and football star Johnny Manziel just recently finalized their divorce. Despite the clear photos of Bre and Nick together, neither has confirmed that they’re an item.
Nick welcomed his ninth child in September 2022 with model LaNisha Cole.
On Sept. 15, 2022, Nick took to Instagram once again to announce that LaNisha Cole gave birth to his ninth child, a daughter named Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.
“God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an angel here on earth,” Nick wrote in his lengthy message where he vowed, “to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities.”
Addressing the haters online who have joked about Nick’s willingness to have so many children, the entertainer took a firm stance in defense of his baby mommas.
“As we all know, I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin, and have always been an open book, but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards me and not the loving and precious mothers of my children,” he wrote alongside the baby reveal.
Nick is expecting his 10th child in October 2022 with Abby De La Rosa.
On June 3, 2022, Abby De La Rosa confirmed via Instagram that she was once again expecting a child with Nick after welcoming twins Zion and Zillion in 2021. Per Page Six, she revealed in an Instagram Live that her due date is Oct. 25, 2022.
When asked by fans how she feels about Nick having fathered so many kids with so many different women, Abby said she’s “not looking for anyone to understand or agree.”
“For me, my children having so many siblings is cool to me,” she added. “Children are a blessing in whatever capacity that may be.”
Well, it turns out her children are going to be adding at least one more sibling to the list.
Nick is expecting his 11th child in 2022 with Brittany Bell.
Abby De La Rosa is not the only one of Nick’s baby mamas to get pregnant again by the star in less than two years. On Aug. 24, 2022, Nick announced that he was expecting his eleventh child. The mom-to-be is Brittany Bell, with whom he already shares a son Golden and a daughter Powerful Queen.
Nick shared a behind-the-scenes video of their maternity photo shoot, in which Brittany appears to be pretty far along.
“Time stopped and this happened,” he wrote, adding the hashtags #sunshine and #sonRISE. Though neither the sex nor the due date of their baby has yet to be confirmed, based on the hashtags, many believe they’re expecting another son.
Nick Cannon confirmed he’s expecting even more babies in 2022.
On June 7, 2022, Nick teased that he was prepping for another baby boom — however, it isn’t yet clear who the baby mamas are. “The stork is on the way,” he said during an episode of the Lip Service podcast. “If you thought the numbers I put up in 2021 was…wait ’til 2022! Y’know, there were a lot of kids last year.”
Nick Cannon loves being a dad.
Before Golden’s birth some time ago, Nick said he was eager to have more kids. In an interview with ABC News in 2016, Nick said that they brought joy to his life.
“I’m not against it. I talk about that all the time. I love children. Everybody knows that” he said. “Whether it’s having more of my own, or adopting, whatever, I love that process. Kids kind of bring that vibrant side [out] of me so whenever I can be a part of that process I’m with it.”
In an interview with The Breakfast Club in August 2021, Nick addressed those who have criticized him over his parenting. “The idea that a man should have one woman … we should have anything … I have no ownership over this person,” he said. “It’s about what exchange we can create together. So I’ve never really subscribed to that mentality. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers,” adding, “Every woman that I deal with or have dealt with, they know how I feel.”
