Cannon apparently has nothing but love for his ex-wife, Carey, and her soon-to-be new husband James Packer, though he isn’t against seeing some good old-fashioned humor in the situation.

Cannon shared a fan-created meme that shows him in a hospital bed with comedian Kevin Hart by his side. The image, which was taken from their BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood, reads “It’s just a ring Nick…..”
Cannon captioned the photo, “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.”

In case you missed the reference in the meme here, Carey’s engagement ring is a whopping 35-carat diamond, one of the biggest in the world. It takes over almost half of her finger and is absolutely insane.

Carey and Cannon split in December 2014 after six years of marriage. It seemed like the couple was headed toward a rocky divorce, but the two were eventually able to put aside their differences for the sake of their twins, Monroe and Moroccan. Since then, it seems like they really do have nothing but love for each other. They even spent the holidays together.

Meanwhile, Carey and Packer have been dating since last summer, after meeting at the Hercules premiere in Aspen and hitting it off.

Packer proposed on Thursday in New York City, with the giant ring in tow, which Carey promptly flaunted at Eleven Madison Park restaurant that same night.

While everyone — including Cannon — is rooting for the happy couple, it appears both Carey and Packer have yet to actually be divorced from their previous respective spouses. The two have been dating less than a year, after all. But both of the couples’ paperwork has been filed; they’re just waiting on the final approval to go through, so all should be right shortly.

No word as of yet as to when Carey and Packer plan to officially tie the knot.
