Outspoken actor Nick Cannon believes that he has his ‘super sperm’ to thank for getting ‘people pregnant’ despite them using birth control.
Cannon, 42, has a staggering 12 children to six different women.
He shares 11-year-old fraternal twins Monroe and Moroccan with Mariah Carey, whom he was married to between 2008 and 2016.
He also has Golden, six, daughter Powerful Queen, 2 and Rise, six months with model Brittany Bell.
With Abby De la Rosa, he shares Zion and Zillion, both one-year-old, as well as six-month-old baby Beautiful Zeppelin.
Last year, he welcomed son Legendary Love, nine months, with Selling Sunset’s Bre Tiesi, as well as Onyx Ice, six months, with LaNisha Cole
After losing their son Zen to brain cancer in 2021, he welcomed daughter Halo Marie, with Alyssa Scott in 2022, too.
However, Cannon has said that he isn’t purposefully getting women pregnant. In fact, he said that women have been getting pregnant while taking birth control.
Speaking on an episode of Howie Mandel Does Stuff, Cannon said that he believes his “super sperm” is to thank for him being a father to 12 children under 12.
“I’m gonna be honest, I’ve got some super sperm or something ‘cause I’ve practised birth control, and people still got pregnant,” he said.
When asked if he’s finished having children, Cannon responded, “I guess… yeah? I don’t wanna say yeah, and then, like, you know, it’s the reproductive system… it could happen at any time… I’m good with my dozen.
“But, to say that, I’m trying to be as responsible as I possibly can, learning lessons.”
Mandel retorted and said, “It’s hard to be responsible when you have super sperm”
The former America’s Got Talent presenter has previously discussed his reluctance to use contraception in a 2017 interview.
Regarding his autoimmune disease Lupus, he said, “I’m probably going to die sooner than most people… So let’s f**k all night! So why wear condoms? I might not be here tomorrow!”
However, despite saying he is potentially finished with having children, there’s reportedly a new game show coming where Cannon will pick one lucky woman to become his next baby mamma – yes, you did read that right.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the show will be called Who’s Having My Baby? And is set to be hosted by Kevin Hart.
If you really want to you can watch the trailer for the bizarre gameshow below:
It’s not known when Who’s Having My Baby? will air, but it’s expected to hit E! this spring.
And no, you’re not the only one that’s speechless.
