Nick Cannon Reveals He Is Trying To Remain Celibate Till 2022
Nick Cannon, the 40-year-old star, recently revealed that he’s practicing celibacy after welcoming his seventh child earlier this summer.
While The Masked Singer host is accustomed to being in the spotlight, he has made headlines this past year for having four children with three different women in the span of a few months.
It appears that Nick is now planning to hold off on expanding his family, at least for the time being. Speaking to DJ EFN and N.O.R.E. on Friday, Oct. 1 during an interview on Revolt’s Drink Champs, he said:
I told you, man, I’m celibate right now. I’m going to see if I could make it to 2022. I’m trying to chill out though. I’m chillin’, I’m kind of stepping away, getting focused, going within, getting my celibacy on. I have enough children, enough frolicking, I’m good right now.
When both hosts joked that Nick was “not really, kind of” celibate, he responded, “Nah, y’all said I ain’t really. I’m saying I’m going in.”
Although the Love Don’t Cost a Thing actor is temporarily changing his lifestyle, he previously discussed welcoming four kids within the same year.
In fact, Nick said he didn’t understand what all the fuss was all about while appearing on The Breakfast Club in August.
Well, why do people question that? Nick replied when asked about people’s questions surrounding his growing family:
I mean, because that’s a Eurocentric concept when you think about the ideas of, like, you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life and really that’s just a classified property when you think about it.
The actor is the father of 10-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. He welcomed 4-year-old son Golden and 10-month-old daughter Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell.
In June 2021, Nick and DJ Abby De La Rosa welcomed twins Zion and Zillion. Later that month, model Alyssa Scott confirmed that her and Nick’s baby Zen was born.
