La celebrità di Nick Cannon è stata quasi superata dalla sua famigerata virilità. L’11 novembre, il conduttore di « Masked Singer » e Abby De La Rosa hanno avuto il loro terzo figlio insieme, Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, che ha fatto pendere la bilancia per Cannon al bambino n. 11. Il giorno successivo, ha pubblicato una foto intima su Instagram di lui e De La Rosa che tiene in braccio il loro neonato, e ha elogiato la madre nella didascalia. « La tua resilienza e forza non passano inosservate. Guardarti sorridere attraverso la follia del mondo e la mia costante follia è così impressionante », ha scritto Nick.
A day before the Beautiful's birth, a report was released that estimated that Nick spends around $3 million a year on child support. "If he is taking home somewhere upward of $5 million a year, you have to look at what it would take to have the children kept in the lifestyle of both parents," Goldie Schon, a family law attorney, told The U.S. Sun on November 10. The "Drumline" star addressed those claims the next day. "I definitely spend a lot more than that on my children annually," Nick said while speaking to The Neighborhood Talk.
Earlier in the year, when he was only a father of eight, Nick spoke about juggling co-parenting responsibilities. "Contrary to popular belief, I'm probably engaged throughout my children's day, more often than the average adult can be," he told Men's Health in June. Nick had since sired several more children, and spoke about the possibility of more.
Is this Nick Cannon's last kid?
Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed baby girl Halo Marie Cannon into the world on December 14. Scott shared a touching video to Instagram on December 29 to commemorate the birth which featured footage of the delivery. She also added a moving caption that touched on the tragic death of their infant son, and how it added even more emotional heft to Halo's birth, as the loss of one child made the arrival of another that much sweeter. "I will remember the sound of Nick's voice saying 'it's a girl' and the look of everything we've been through flash across his face," the model wrote. The Instagram clip featured raw footage of Scott snuggling the newborn fresh out of the womb, along with Nick snapping a selfie with the pair. "I will remember the sound of her crying out with her first breath and feeling her heartbeat against mine," Scott added.
After the birth of baby No. 11 for Nick, and just before he was set to have a full dozen, the former "Wild N' Out" host was asked if he planned on having more children. "I don't know, man. I have no idea. I think I'm good right now!" he told Billboard on November 18.
Although earlier in the year, Nick hinted that he was nearing the finish line on fathering more kids. "I already went and got my vasectomy consultation," he told E! News's "Daily Pop" in May. "I ain't looking to populate the Earth completely," Nick jokingly added.
