Nick Cannon’s single life journey took a turn following the death of his son Zen in December 2021.
“I was depressed by the loss of my son,” the 41-year-old ‘Masked Singer’ host said on Tuesday’s episode of the ‘Lip Service’ podcast.
“The thing is, everyone saw that I was so depressed,” he continued. “So everyone was like, ‘Let’s just give her a little vagina, and it’ll cure everything.’ I fell victim to it because I was in a state of weakness.
The ‘All That’ alum admitted that he ‘started fucking like crazy…just before Christmas’ despite his intentions to abstain from sex until the ‘top of the year’.
Cannon, who began pursuing celibacy in October 2021, said: “I was probably single for a month and a half. …I was trying to do it. … I was dealing with a lot of things.
In addition to Zen, the former Nickelodeon star is father to twins Moroccan and Monroe, 11, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, son Golden, 5, and daughter Powerful, 1, with Brittany Bell and her twins Zion and Zillion, 11 months. , starring Abby De La Rosa.
Cannon’s timeline has led podcast co-hosts Angela Yee, Stephanie Santiago and Gigi Maguire to predict he’ll be welcoming babies in September and October this year.
The actor is currently expecting baby number 8, his first with model Bre Tiesi. On Friday, De La Rosa revealed she has another baby on the way – but has yet to share paternity on her next arrival.
“I AM PREGNANT,” the DJ, 31, captioned her Friday announcement on Instagram. “Another set of twins?” »
When asked Tuesday if he was expecting more than Tiesi’s baby boy, Cannon played coy and neither confirmed nor denied the paternity of De La Rosa’s future baby.
“Let’s just say the stork is on its way,” the ‘Drumline’ star said, hinting at her plans to break her own record for babies born in a year.
“If you thought there were a lot of kids last year…” he said before stopping.
Cannon’s comments come a month after he went for a vasectomy consultation.
“I’m not looking to completely populate the Earth,” the “Wild ‘N Out” host told E! News in May, joking that he wasn’t “looking” for more kids. “I’m really looking forward to taking care of and loving all the kids I have right now.”
