Before Nick Cannon wed Mariah Carey, he was engaged to Victoria’s Secret supermodel Selita Ebanks.

He popped the question on a JumboTron in Times Square in 2007, but the couple called it quits five months later.

Still, Selita has nothing but love for the man she could’ve called her husband, as he awaits the arrival of twins. The beauty, 28, shares her own family plans.

“I think he’s going to be phenomenal,” she tells me during the Fool’s Fete Spring Dance hosted by New Yorkers For Children to benefit youth in foster care held Tuesday at Mandarin Oriental in NYC. “He has such a great energy and spirit. He’s a really great guy.”

For Selita, who grew up in foster care, the greatest gift would be to give birth to children of her own.

“Oh, one day,” she tells me. “If God blesses me, I’ll have 100. If it can hold it in this little belly, I’ll have them.”
