Nick Cannon is expecting an 8th child soon and has decided it might be time to get a vasectomy. On an interview with E News’ Daily Pop, Cannon admitted to already getting a consultation for one.
When asked how many children he was going to have, Cannon speaks about the blessings and solace he finds in his kids. He never meant to have so many, but he cherishes each of them.
He told Daily Pop, “I love all my children. I love children. I don’t know if I would have designed it this way. But it’s one of those things, when you are blessed with the gifts of children. I find solace, I find peace in my children. And I find purpose… I already went and got my vasectomy consultation. I’m not here looking to populate the Earth completely. But I’m definitely looking forward to taking care of and loving all the children that I currently have.”
Cannon is expecting his eighth child, a boy, with model Bre Tiesi. Tiesi recently posted a sexy photo of Cannon embracing her bare belly on Instagram. It was captioned, “My Twin [flame emoji]. Thankful for you everyday. Can’t believe after all these years we are finally here. I hope my son is everything like his father. We Love you.”
Cannon’s other children include the late Zen, who sadly passed away at 5-months due to a brain cancer. Zen’s mother was Alyssa Scott. There are also 9-month-old twins, Zion and Zillion, with Abby De La Rosa. He has a 1-year-old daughter, Powerful Queen, and a 5-year-old son, Golden, with Brittany Bell. And of course, Cannon shares 10-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with Mariah Carey.
When asked how he manages dedicating time to all of his children, Cannon admits that he often feels guilty.
“It truly is probably one of the most challenging things in my life,” he says. Work is the primary culprit, which Cannon reminds is a reality for most parents.
“Especially right now when they’re younger… little league… swim practice… I take my kids to school every morning… we Facetime… so, extracurricular activities, arts, music. I want to be in every aspect of their life.”
Cannon doesn’t mention the vasectomy again in the interview, but it’s interesting, nonetheless.
After all, birth control is often left to women to be responsible for. But this may change in the near future. Apart from condoms and vasectomies, there could soon be another option for men to take control of their reproduction. Researchers are currently about to start human trials for male birth control pills.
