Nick Cannon has received notable accomplishments in his multi-faceted career as an actor, comedian, rapper, and television presenter. Born on October 8, 1980, in San Diego, California, Cannon ventured into rapping as a teenager. A laudable success in music led him to into other ventures.

During a radio interview earlier this year, the actor shared his philosophy on building his family. The actor says he finds fatherhood the most rewarding part of his life, and one has got to believe the actor when he says he loves being a father as Cannon is a doting father of seven. Nick welcomed his first two kids with his ex-wife Mariah Carrey.

Cannon and Bell's son, Golden Sagon Cannon, turned four earlier this year, and their daughter, Powerful Queen Cannon, turned 1 this December. Nick doesn't subscribe to monogamy, and the actor made his stance loud and clear when he welcomed another twin with DJ Abby De La Rosa. Their twin sons, Zion Mixolydian Cannon and Zillion Heir Cannon, were born on June 14, 2021. Cannon welcomed his seventh child, Zen S. Cannon, on June 23, with model Alyssa Scott.

While the comedian loves being a father and his children with different women are merely the products of the fleeting romance, Nick says he doesn't go around wondering who to impregnate next, in case people hold such presumptions. "I don't have ownership of any of the mothers. We create families in the sense of we created a beautiful entity," Cannon said.
