Nick Cannon welcomes 9th child while expecting his 10th

Nick Cannon welcomes 9th child while expecting his 10th

Nick Cannon has shared the name and first picture of his daughter Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.

Nick Cannon has confirmed the arrival of his ninth child, with his tenth already on the way. Watch the video below:

The television host and musician shared a picture of his most recent bundle of joy on Instagram, with a lengthy caption in which declared he will 'mute any low vibrational frequencies' following backlash against his ever-growing family.

Confirming the unique moniker for his newborn daughter, the post begins: "Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON… Once again Today I am in Awe of the Devine Feminine! [sic] 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".

The 41-year-old then hits out at 'any criticism and cynicism' directed towards him.

The post continues: "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.

The Wild ’N Out creator has been consistently criticised and teased online due to his number of children and mothers.

He addresses the backlash in the caption, adding: "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."

Nick also gave a special shout-out to LaNisha Cole, a model and Onyx's mum.

"@MissLanishaCole is one of the most guileless, peaceful and non-confrontational kind souls I’ve ever witnessed, and only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood," he wrote.

"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."

Last month, Nick announced his 10th child is on the way, with Brittany Bell.

The father-of-nine has 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-wife Mariah Carey. He is father to Golden, five and Powerful, one, with Brittany Bell, twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, one, with Abby De La Rosa, late son Zen - who passed away last December from brain cancer – with Alyssa Scott, and Legendary Love Cannon with Bre Tiesi, two months.
