Nick Cannon has said the unthinkable. After getting multiple women pregnant at the same time, having multiple kids with multiple women (12 to be exact) it looks like Nick Cannon may be takin’ a little break. In an interview on the red carpet at Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players event at Academy L.A, Nick said “[My kids] are my No. 1 priority, obviously.  I wake up being a father and thinking about my kids and everything else comes after that.” He was then asked if he was having anymore kids. He responded “I don’t know, man. I have no idea.  I think I’m good for now, though.”

Now that doesn’t exactly say he’s done for good. It sounds like he may be taking a little break. You can see for yourself and check out a timeline of Nick’s kids below:

Nick Cannon Welcomes ANOTHER Baby, Here's a Timeline of All of His Kids SO FAR

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.

**UPDATE** In the past week, Nick has announced he is having another child with Alyssa Scott and just yesterday, Abby De La Rosa announced she’s having a third child with Nick. This will bring Nick’s total to 12 (NOT including his son Zen who passed away). We are updating the timeline below.
