Nick Cannon opened up about being a dad of 12 as he revealed which of his children he spends the most time with.

According to an E! Online report, the TV host revealed on the Jason Lee Podcast that he spends the most time with his 8-month-old Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, whose mom is LaNisha Cole. 

"My beautiful daughter Onyx, that's probably the child that I spend the most time with, really," he said. "I'm with her at least three times a week, for the full day." 

"LaNisha and I have a super strong understanding and our co-parenting operation is so solid. If you see me on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, my daughter's right next to me,” he explained, adding that he has also set up a nursery for Onyx in his office, where they usually hang out and get to know each other. 

"I appreciate that LaNisha gives me the respect enough to allow me to have her, really, as equal amount of time that she does,” he continued. 

The host introduced his 12th child to the world in December 2022. 

He’s currently in a relationship with model Alyssa Scott, with whom he has welcomed three kids. One of them unfortunately died from brain cancer in 2021. 

He also shares twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey as well as three kids Zion, Zillion, and Zeppelin with Abby De La Rosa. Aside from Onyx, he is also dad to Golden Sagon, Powerful Queen, and Rise Messiah, whom he shares with Brittany Bell; and Legendary Love, whose mom is Bre Tiesi.
