Nick Cannon expresses guilt over not spending time with all 11 of his children

Father-of-11 Nick Cannon is struggling to manage his time between his large brood.

The Masked Singer host, 42, currently has 11 children with a 12th on the way, since Alyssa Scott is pregnant and the couple shared Zen, who died in December 2021, aged just five months old. 

He shares Golden Sagon, five, Powerful Queen, 23 months, and Rise Messiah, 10 weeks, with model Brittany Bell.

Nick and Abby De La Rose share twins Zion and Zillion, 17 months, and Beautiful Zeppelin, three weeks. 

With model Bre Tiesi, Nick has son Legendary Love, five months, and welcomed daughter Onyx Ice Cole with model LaNisha Cole in September. 

Finally, Nick is father to 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan from his marriage to pop star Mariah Carey.

With such a big family, it’s understandable why Nick might struggle with spending equal amounts of time with them all.

‘Being a father of multiple kids, it’s always the biggest guilt on me, is that I don’t get to spend enough time with all my children,’ he shared during an episode of Paramount+’s The Checkup with Dr. David Agus.

‘One ’cause I’m constantly working, and two because I’m just spread thin.’

The festive period in particular is sure to be a hectic one for Nick but, despite his parenting having become somewhat of a meme, he’s able to laugh about it.

Wild N’ Out host Nick recently poked fun at the constant headlines targeting his family life, as he gave a cheeky glimpse into his Christmas shopping efforts.

He joked: ‘It’s almost the holidays, and thanks to me, the world now has eight billion people.

‘But my job is not done – it’s time to do some online Christmas shopping, and based off the baby mama-to-kid ratio, we’ve got a whole hell of a lot of gifts to buy!

‘To start it off, my adorable and jovial offspring gave me a list. Daddy’s got this. It’s going to be a merry motherf**kng Christmas.’

However, the comedian was left stunned by some of the gifts on his children’s wish lists, laughing that his own dad simply gave him a ‘stick’ when he was little, resulting in a nickname, ‘Stick Cannon.’

Attempting to talk one child down, he said: ‘No, I can’t afford the whole Lakers… Maybe one of them? All these damn gifts, y’all just don’t want to go to college, huh?’

‘Where are you going to put a dolphin, little girl? Huh?,’ he appeared to tell daughter Moroccan. ‘Oh yeah, your mamma do got an island, never mind! I’m gonna work on the dolphin.’

‘Happy holidays, from my big-ass family to yours,’ he concluded the video, before joking: ‘Yeah, how much can I get for this kidney?’

One thing’s for sure, Nick will be ready for a good night’s sleep after Christmas Day this year!
