Nick Cannon reveals he regrets not having a baby with Christina Milian – NBC Chicago
Nick Cannon mourns the one who got away.
The famous father of 12 (with six different wives) opened up to Thembi Mawema in a new episode of ‘Stepping Into The Shade Room’ about his love life.
Mawema cuts to the chase, asking Cannon, 42, if there are any women he regrets not having fathered with from his past.
“Has there been anyone you’ve dated in the past who’s been like, ‘You know what, I wish we had a baby’?” she asks Cannon.
Cannon didn’t hold back, even admitting, “I know (this) is going to go viral.”
“When Christina Milian and I were doing ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’…I remember when I found out she was pregnant. Did I still have kids? I don’t know, but I was like, fuck man,” Canon replied.
Mawema interjects, “Could it have been me?”
“Yeah yeah yeah,” Cannon replied. “I was so happy for her. I remember we were love kids at first, and so we talked about it, but each to their own. Life plans it. The universe gives it how it’s supposed to be given. “
Cannon and Milian, 41, co-starred in 2003’s ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’ and the couple dated after the film debuted, but separated when Milian discovered Cannon had been unfaithful.
Milian used music to mend her broken heart and announced in 2009 that she was expecting her first child with then-husband The-Dream. Today, the singer and actress is a mother of three children.
Cannon is the proud father of 12 children with six different women: twins Monroe and Moroccan, 11, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; Golden Sagon, 6, Powerful Queen, 2, and Rise Messiah, 6 months, with model and former Miss Arizona USA Brittany Bell; Onyx Ice Cole, 6 months, with LaNisha Cole; twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 1, and Beautiful Zeppelin, 4 months, with DJ Abby De La Rosa; Zen, who died of brain cancer in December 2021, and Halo Marie, nearly 3 months old, with Alyssa Scott; and Legendary Love, 8 months, with model Bre Tiesi.
“I have a tribe of bright, impressionable young minds that I can help nurture to be whatever they want to be. That’s the blessing I’ve been given,” Cannon told Mawema of his children. “There’s nothing in this world that they can’t do or don’t have access to, because I can make it happen.”
