Surprise! Nick Cannon has had baby number NINE, holy crap.
This is Cannon’s 9th child, a baby girl born to his wife LaNisha Nicole. They named the baby Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.
Cannon wrote a statement in his Instagram post, obviously a little over the jokes about his large family. Critics online have questioned Cannon’s untraditional views on monogamy, which he addressed.
“As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children.”
Here’s his post’s text in full:
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. In this moment of celebration and jubilee, I wish to mute any low vibrational frequencies and only rejoice with the Highest Class of Civilization who are truly aligned with our purpose here in this dimension.
We all learn so much from these Angels we call children. I am learning that it is not the limited amount of time we have on this planet but it’s the limited amount of love that is the issue. And 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.
As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children.
@MissLanishaCole 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. As for me, if you are truly concerned during this time of Spiritual Warfare, my inner struggles with self, mental wellness and physical health concerns… Just continue to pray for me and my entire family that God will grant us Peace that surpasses all Understanding.
Nicole and Cannon were linked publicly in early 2021 but broke up not long after. The model did not hide her pregnancy but she did not reveal that Nick was the father.
“The joy that I feel as a mother is something that has forever opened up my heart in a huge new way. She’s surrounded by so much love and I’m already obsessed with her!” wrote Nicole in an Instagram story.
Nick is thrilled with the baby and said, “I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities.”
Brittany Bell, meanwhile, is expecting their third child together; she and Nick did a pregnancy photo shoot together last month. AND Abby De La Rosa is also due next month; this will be her third child with Nick as well. And in July? Nick had a baby with Bre Tiesi. Cannon also has 11-year-old twins with Mariah Carey and a son with Alyssa Scott, who passed away from brain cancer in 2021.
Quite the gaggle.
