NICK Cannon joked that he “doesn’t know” how many kids he has and guessed “eight or nine.”
The 40-year-old made the jokes after welcoming his seventh child with his fourth baby mama.
While appearing on Kevin Hart’s talk show Hart to Heart, Nick poked fun at his growing family after Kevin asked who Nick is “as a dad.”
He responded while laughing: “I’m a dad to a whole bunch of mother***ers.”
When Kevin, 42, asked how many kids Nick has, the TV star jokingly replied: “I don’t know that.
“You’re gonna put me on the spot? It’s like Spades, I got eight and a possible nine. I like children, damn it!”
FOUR BABY MAMAS
The Masked Singer host shares twins Moroccan and Monroe, 10, with ex-wife, Mariah Carey who he split from in 2012.
The TV star also has son Golden, five, and daughter, Powerful, eight months, with Brittany Bell.
Back in June, he welcomed twins Zillion and Zion with Abby De La Rosa and a son Zen with Alyssa Scott.
PROUD FATHER OF SEVEN
Nick previously opened up to Charlamagne tha God about the backlash he has been getting after he recently welcomed his fourth child with his third baby mama in under a year.
Speaking of sharing multiple children with different women while appearing on the Breakfast Club, Nick said:” Why do people question it?”
He added: “That’s a Eurocentric concept when you think about the ideas… that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life. The idea that a man should have one woman? We shouldn’t have anything. I have no ownership over this person.”
Sharing his thoughts on monogamy, Nick said that he’s “never really subscribed to that mentality.”
He continued: “I understand the institution of marriage but if we go back to what that’s about, that was to classify property. One father gave another man his daughter for land. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers. We created a beautiful entity.”
Despite creating close bonds with all of his children, the actor added that having so many children wasn’t his “decision.”
‘AIN’T MY DECISION’
The comedian said: “Those women, all women, are the ones that open themselves up and say ‘I would like to allow this man in my world. And I will birth this child.’ It ain’t my decision. I’m following suit.”
Nick added that all the women in his life know how he feels about monogamy.
“I’m not going around like, ‘Who am I gonna impregnate next?'” the rapper joked, adding, “Nah. It’s usually scenarios. When you look at a family structure, the woman is always the one who leads and makes decisions.”
