Nick Cannon made himself the butt of his jokes during a surprise comedy set this week.
The 41-year-old is an open book when it comes to his large family — which is getting bigger since he's expecting his eighth child with model Bre Tiesi — with him often quipping about his several babies with multiple baby mamas.
According to Page Six, Cannon did a surprise set at Stand Up NY on Wednesday, February 23, where he spoke about his children and their baby mamas.
"He asked the audience what they wanted him to talk about, and an old guy yelled out 'Dream Weaver!'" seemingly referring to Gary Wright's 1975 song of the same name, as the attendee explained. "'Dream Weaver?' This ain’t the '70s. I think you mean 'Dreamlover,' by my ex-wife Mariah [Carey],'" Cannon reportedly replied.
According to a source, the Wild 'n Out alum joked "he loves his kids so much he gave them each a baby mama." He shares his seven children with four different women.
"He said he’s [an] open book, and wants to be more vulnerable on upcoming projects," the source noted of why Cannon dived into his nontraditional family.
Cannon and the "Touch My Body" singer share 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. He welcomed a second set of twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, in June 2021 with Abby De La Rosa. He also has a four-year-old son, Golden, and a one-year-old daughter, Powerful Queen, with Brittany Bell.
Cannon's seventh child, Zen, whom he shared with Alyssa Scott, tragically passed away in November 2021 after battling a brain tumor.
Earlier this month, he appeared on the "The Language of Love" podcast with Dr. Laura Berman. The All That alum revealed none of his children were unplanned. "I feel like every woman I have a child with are amazing mothers," he said. "And there was a thought process going into like, 'Man, she would be an amazing mother, she's desired children, I can't wait to see what type of mother she would be.'"
During the appearance, he admitted he is not a fan of monogamy, as he feels it creates an unhealthy dynamic. "I feel like that gets into the space of selfishness and ownership," he explained.
