Nick Cannon Announces He Is Expecting His 8th Child With Bre Tiesi While Congratulating Pal Rihanna & A$AP Rocky On Their Pregnancy News
Nick Cannon revealed he is going to be a father again for the eighth time!
During the Monday, January 31, episode of The Nick Cannon Show, the television host, 41, confirmed he and model Bre Tiesi are expecting a child together while congratulating his friend Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky on news of their own bun in the oven.
While sharing that he has another baby on the way, Cannon joked he was "starting his own football team," before quipping: "my girl, Rihanna, is pregnant and it’s not mine," per Entertainment Tonight. (Rihanna and A$AP Rocky confirmed they have a baby on the way when they were seen taking a stroll in New York City, with the songstress showing off her growing baby bump.)
"It's a boy! We found out yesterday,” the Wild "N Out star told his viewers. “Everyone knows I have a lot of children. It's never a competition. Each one is special."
Cannon shares six-month-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa, as well as 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with superstar ex Mariah Carey. He also shares four-year-old son Golden and one-year-old daughter Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell. In addition, Cannon welcomed his seventh son, Zen, with Alyssa Scott last year; however, their baby boy sadly passed away in November at five-months-old after battling brain cancer.
While Cannon previously took a vow of celibacy late last year, he explained Tiesi was pregnant prior to his declaration. He also revealed the pair found out they were expecting before the death of his youngest son, but he wanted to respect Scott's grieving process at the time.
In regards to people criticizing him for how many children he's welcomed with different women, as he's been deemed careless and irresponsible by critics, Cannon reportedly told viewers: “I have been seeking and dealing with therapy,” to help him handle the backlash.
As OK! previously reported, fans speculated Cannon was gearing up to welcome another child after he and Tiesi threw a gender reveal party in Malibu on Sunday, January 30. In photos obtained by TMZ, the two were seen rocking matching all white ensembles while blue confetti flew into the air.
The brunette beauty, 30, recently finalized her divorce from NFL star Johnny Manziel, who she was married to from 2018-2021. "I do, I did, I'm officially done," Tiesi confirmed in a series of Instagram photos celebrating with friends in Miami at the time.
