Nick Cannon attends The Recording Academy's Black Music Collective, MusiCares And Universal Hip Hop Museum Host Hip Hop & Mental Health: Facing The Stigma Together at The GRAMMY Museum on June 25, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

Nick Cannon famously has twelve children with six different women. For the most part, the actor and television host has stated on numerous occasions that he splits his time up evenly to ensure that all of his kids get to spend time with him. However, Cannon, 42, revealed there is one child in particular whom he sees the most.

The Celebrity Prank Wars host shares children Rise, 5 months, Powerful, 2, and Golden, 6, with Brittany Bell; Beautiful, 3 months, and Zion and Zillion, both 1-year-old, with Abby De La Rosa; Halo, 2 months, and the late Zen with Alyssa Scott; Legendary Love, 10 months, with Bre Tiesi; Onyx, 8 months, with LaNisha Cole; 12-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, with Mariah Carey.

In a recent interview, Nick revealed his “beautiful daughter Onyx” is the child he spends most time with. He said, “I’m with her at least three times a week for the full day.” He added that he and LaNisha have a “super strong understanding, and our co-parenting operation is so solid. If you see me on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays, my daughter’s right next to me.”

Despite spending most of his time with Onyx, Cannon wanted to make it clear that it doesn’t interfere with the amount of time he spends with his other kids. “Not against all my other kids because all my other kids, they’re in school, they’re babies, as well as Onyx,” Cannon said. “But the fact that I appreciate that LaNisha gives me the respect enough to allow me to have her really, an equal amount of time as she does.”

As we previously reported, Cannon said he spends more than $3 million a year on his 12 kids. Back in November, the Wild N’ Out host said, “I don’t plan to ever have to participate in the governmental system of child.” While he doesn’t give any of his baby’s mothers a “monthly allowance,” he never denies them finances when they need it.

“What they need, they get it,” he explained in March. “There’s never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn’t receive. That’s why they call me the provider.” The comedian also expressed the “respect and admiration” he has for the six mothers individually. He said, “When you really understand this woman has given the greatest sacrifice and sacrificed her body to bring a child into [this world], that’s the best gift any man could ask for.”

Nick Cannon's Latest Child Born; Here's A Timeline of His Kids

Nick Cannon has expanded his family yet again. Now, we knew he was expecting his ninth and tenth children with Abby De La Rosa and Brittany Bell, respectively. Apparently, he also had one on the way with model Lanisha Cole. It was speculated that Lanisha was pregnant with Nick’s child but the news was never confirmed by either parent.

Nick announced the news on his IG with the comment: “Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON. Once again Today I am in Awe of the Devine Feminine! God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an Angel here on earth. I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities. I promise to love this little girl with all my heart, regardless what anyone says…I’ve given up on attempting to define myself for the world or society but instead I’m doing the work to heal and grow into the infinite Being God ordained me to be. Hopefully I can teach Onyx the same, to not let others shame or ridicule her with their outside opinions, because when they do they are only projecting their own harsh experiences, pain and social programming onto her unblemished beauty.” Nick even went on to defend Lanisha, saying “[Lanisha] is one of the most guileless, peaceful and nonconfrontational kind souls I’ve ever witnessed, and only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood. Please give her that. She is so loving and pure hearted.”

Onyx Ice Cole Cannon is now Nick’s ninth child. As mentioned, he is still expecting two more children (that we know of). Are you having a hard time keeping up with all of his kids, and who he had them with? No problem: we’re here to help. Check out our timeline below.
