If Nick Cannon keeps up his current trajectory, he’s going to need more than two hands to count his offspring (and, presumably, his child support) — because he’s currently expecting baby number 10!
The soon-to-be double-digit daddy announced the big news via a video montage on Instagram Wednesday, of a sultry maternity photoshoot with a very pregnant Brittany Bell, who is already the mother of two of his kids: 5-year-old son Golden and 1-year-old Powerful Queen. The montage also contains footage of the four of them having some (really adorable) family photos taken.
There’s no doubt that Cannon is a devoted dad, having dance parties and visiting butterfly gardens and theme parks and cheering his kiddos on at their sporting events. But he confessed to Entertainment Tonight in 2021 — back when he only had seven kids — that his biggest insecurity as a father is “giving too much energy elsewhere and not to my children.” With this many kids, he’s probably not going to have energy for anything!
To recap, Cannon has Golden and Powerful Queen (and one on the way!) with Brittany Bell; 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Mariah Carey; 1-year-old twins Zion and Zillion (and also one on the way, due next month!) with Abby de la Rosa; newborn Legendary Love with Bri Tiesi, who made his debut just last month; and son Zen, who tragically passed from a brain tumor at just five months old, with Alyssa Scott.
Per E’s Daily Pop, Cannon noted back in May that he had seen a doctor for a vasectomy consultation (which clearly ended there). “I ain’t looking to populate the Earth completely, but I’m definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have,” he said at the time. He kind of ate his words, though, when he responded to a tweet about that very subject put out in July by another very prolific father, Elon Musk.
Right there with you my Brother!✊🏾

In any case, as long as they’re being taken care of, more babies to love is never a bad thing. But a condom once in a while probably wouldn’t be a terrible idea either.
From Illusia to Zillion, here are a few of the most unique celebrity baby names.
