Nick Cannon has confessed that he doesn't provide any 'monthly allowance' to any of the mothers of his 12 children.
Radio presenters Shorty Da Prince, Brittish Williams, and Andrew Caldwell posed a delicate question to him on the Home Morning Show.
The 42-year-old TV presenter was interrogated by Shorty Da Prince, Brittish Williams, and Andrew Caldwell on how much he has contributed in child support, having fathered 12 children with different women.
Apart from being a father to 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, whom he shares with Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon also has three other children - Rise (six months old), Powerful Queen (two), and Golden (six) - with Brittany Bell.
The list further includes Beautiful (four months old), Zion (one year old), and Zillion (one year old), whom he shares with Abby De La Rosa.
In addition, he has a three-month-old daughter named Halo and a late son named Zen (who passed away tragically in December 2021) with Alyssa Scott. Furthermore, Nick Cannon has an eight-month-old son named Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi, as well as a six-month-old son named Onyx with LaNisha Cole.
When asked about his financial responsibilities as a parent, he jokingly quipped with the radio show presenters, saying: "I'm not on the government."
In response, one of the co-hosts retorted: "That's how you know he really got it together!"
Nick replied that although he doesn't provide a monthly salary to any of the mothers to assist in taking care of his children, he fulfills any requests they may have.
He made a playful remark that the mothers of his children have given him the moniker 'the provider.'
"But to your point, to answer it in a very serious way, it ain't even about a monthly allowance or amount of money, because I don't give myself that," he said.
"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."
Nick discussed the high regard he holds for the six mothers of his children, stating: "Everybody has their challenges - but when you really understand this woman has given the greatest sacrifice, and sacrificed her body to bring a child into this world, that's the best gift any man could ask for."
"Regardless of what goes on in any scenario, I'm gonna always show love and respect. I'll never say anything disrespectful or bad about any of the mothers of my children."
Recently, the enthusiastic father expressed his remorse about not having a child with his former partner, singer and actress Christina Milian.
He revealed that even though they had talked about having kids when they were together, they were still "young and in love" at that time.
The 42-year-old father of 12 also acknowledged that he may not be finished with expanding his family, as he stated that he would never entirely rule out having more children.
In addition, this spring, Nick will participate in a game show that is being touted as "the mother of all game shows."
Entertainment Tonight has reported that in the upcoming show Who's Having My Baby? hosted by Kevin Hart, Cannon will choose from a group of women who will compete to become the mother of his next child.
