Nick Cannon has shared how one of his former partners feels about him having 12 children.

Nick Cannon has shared how his former partner Mariah Carey feels about him having 12 children.

For those not in the know - and to be honest, I don't blame you with how large Cannon's offspring is - he is the dad to 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with Mariah Carey.

The Masked Singer presenter also shares Rise, six months old, Powerful Queen, two and Golden, six, with Brittany Bell.

But it certainly doesn't stop there, as he co-parents with Abby De La Rosa daughter Beautiful, five months, and Zion and Zillion, both one.

With Alyssa Scott, he is also father to Halo, four months old, and the late Zen - who tragically died in December 2021.

Completing the list is Legendary Love, ten months, with Bre Tiesi, and Onyx, seven months, with LaNisha Cole.

Despite having all those children with so many different women, Cannon says that one of his former lovers, Carey, is his number one supporter when it comes to his massive family.

In a an upcoming episode of The Jason Lee Show, Cannon opened up on his relationship with the 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' singer.

In a clip optioned by Page Six, Cannon said: "She’s high frequency. She always asks me, ‘You aight? How you doin’? You handling it all?'

"When we talk daily, she’s just checking in on my spirit."

And while Cannon gets a lot of criticism online for his large offspring, Carey does nothing but 'encourage' her ex-husband, according to Cannon.

"She’s like, ‘Yo, let’s make sure we’re on the same page every day so when some bulls**t comes up, we know that it ain’t true,'” Cannon continued.

Recently, Cannon defended himself for fathering so many children, with him seemingly having nothing but love for his unusually large family.

Speaking to People, he said: "I believe that's what we're put on this planet here to do, is to guide and usher in your offspring.

"So fatherhood is my number one and first priority when I open my eyes, when I get up every morning.

"Career and work and all of that, take second."

Cannon said there are ‘a lot of narratives out there’ about him and his life that he’s ‘actually not even a part of’.

He continued: “I understand that my lifestyle isn't typical to society and can be viewed as unorthodox in some ways. But my goal in life is just to love my kids and be there for my kids and provide for them.

"Like I always say, I just love with abundance."
