In addition to his new baby boy, Cannon shares 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex Mariah Carey. He shares 5-year-old Golden “Sagon” and 19-month-old Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell, and 13-month-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa. His son Zen, whom he shares with Alyssa Scott, died in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
In June, during an appearance on the Lip Service podcast, the radio host revealed that he is expecting more children this year. Responding to speculation that he has “three babies on the way,” Cannon first joked, “When you say ‘on the way… ‘ What count are you at? Let’s just put it this way … the stork is on the way.”
Asked if he’s currently expecting three children, he said, “I don’t know, it could be…”
The actor, who welcomed three children in 2021, then suggested he plans on breaking his personal record, stating, “If you thought it was a lot of kids last year…”

In the May/June issue of Men’s Health, Cannon opened up about being a father of eight and how he stays involved in each of his kids’ lives.
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m probably engaged throughout my children’s day, more often than the average adult can be,” he said.
“If I’m not physically in the same city with my kids, I’m talking to them before they go to school via FaceTime and stuff. And then when I am [in the same city, I’m] driving my kids to school, like making sure I pick ’em up.”
