AceShowbiz - Nick Cannon has addressed his rapidly growing offspring. Having welcomed four children within just a year, the multi-hypenated star has defended his high frequency to procreate.
"I'm having these kids on purpose," Nick explained on his Power 106 Los Angeles radio show on Wednesday, July 7, finally fighting back against the internet's narrative that he's just getting anybody and everybody pregnant. "I don't have no accident!"
He also fought back the narrative that he got everyone pregnant. "Trust me there's a lot of people that I could've gotten pregnant that I didn't," so the 40-year-old father of seven insisted. "The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant."
Nick's comments were a response to JT's playful jest, in which the rapper urged him to put a break on procreating. "Just stay true to yourself and... wrap it up," the City Girls star said with a laugh. She added, "Wrap it up and protect yourself."
Earlier on the show, Nick compared his pattern of welcoming offspring to that of a seahorse, saying, "I'm like a seahorse out here. That's just the way I'm procreating."
Nick most recently welcomed a baby boy, his seventh child, with model Alyssa Scott. In June, he welcomed twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with DJ Abby De La Rosa. He is also a father to twins Monroe and Moroccan, whom he shares with ex-wife Mariah Carey, and son Sagon as well as daughter Powerful Queen, who he shares with ex Brittany Bell.
Nick's father James Cannon previously also defended him for the back-to-back pregnancies. "I believe children are blessings. And I teach my son, 'Make as much money as you can, and have as many children as you can,' " he shared his advice to his son in an interview with The Sun. "I told Nick, 'I'd rather you have as many kids [as possible] and send those kids to college, pour into those kids, love those kids, teach those kids about God.' "
James believes that Nick's decision to keep expanding his offspring is related to his anti-abortion stance. "You look at the video and you tell me … [Nick] wrote it, produced it and directed it," the proud grandfather said of his son's song titled "Can I Live?", released in 2005, which tells the story of his mother ultimately deciding not to go through with aborting him.
