Ladies and gentlemen, Nick Cannon is back at it again.
The 42-year-old TV personality and father-of-12 has opened up about his apparent “super sperm”. He made the stunning revelation on Howie Mandel Does Stuff, where he discussed how some of his six baby mamas became pregnant while on birth control.
For those who are unaware, Cannon shares sons Rise Messiah, six months, and five-year-old Golden Sagon, as well as two-year-old daughter Powerful Queen with model Brittany Bell. Model Brie Tiesi has nine-month-old Legendary Love with Cannon, and model LaNisha Cole has a six-month-old daughter named Onyx Ice Cole with him.
Despite having so many children, Cannon insisted that he tries to be “responsible” in the bedroom, but revealed that some of his children were conceived despite using birth control.
He confessed: “I’m gonna be honest, some of the… I got some super sperm or something, ’cause I’ve practiced birth control, and people still got pregnant. I’m trying to be as responsible as I possibly can, learning lessons…”
The Wild ‘N’ Out TV host did acknowledge that while being a father to so many can be difficult, he’s happy with his life. “I’m not a ‘can’t’ guy. I embrace challenges. It’s funny because I get when the outside is looking in and they’re like, ‘I don’t get how one person can do all that.’ But it’s the same thing when people say that about all of the multiple things that I do in my life anyways.”
He added: “I think I’m a man of abundance. Everything is challenging, but the fact that I get to see all my children in one day and get to see them each and every day when I’m in town, even when I’m not in town, I take them with me. I love the challenge.”
His eldest children – Moroccan and Monroe – are, according to Cannon, happy with being part of a larger family. “At this point, they enjoy it. They have fun and they’re the oldest. But who knows where that will go when 16 hits.
“It’s my first time having 12-year-olds and I have a set of them. And we’re having real conversations because, you know, their lives are far from normal.
“Their mom is one of the biggest entertainers to ever live and their dad is me. But they’re so intelligent, they’re so in tune with their own values, but we have challenging conversations sometimes… One thing they do know is that dad f**** up. Dad makes mistakes,” he concluded.
