The TV star noted he doesn't think having a 13th child would bring bad luck, sharing, "Thirteen is a good number. It's definitely a lucky number."

When asked what his favorite part of fatherhood is, he replied, "Just hearing your kids say, 'I love you, daddy.' You know what I mean?"

"The first time they say it, whether they're 1 year old or 18 months, to hearing it from your kids that are on the brink of being teenagers, there's nothing better than that," he gushed, adding he also enjoys picking up the children from school.

While some people have scolded the comedian for having so many kids, he insisted he spends time with each of them and makes sure all six of his baby mamas receive child support.

"I've been villainized. I hear all the time: ‘You can’t be present for all those children.’ So therefore I get this ‘deadbeat dad’ title," he said in a 2023 interview. "It’s not about what I do for you or what I say to you, it’s about how you feel when I’m with you. If you feel loved when you see your dad, that’s what’s gonna resonate."

Cannon also disclosed that he doesn't give his co-parents "a monthly allowance or amount of money, because I don't give myself that. What they need, they get."

"There's never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn't receive," he continued. "That’s why they call me the provider. Whatever you need."

People spoke to Cannon about having another baby.
