Over the last few years, Nick Cannon has been catching a lot of flack due to him having babies with multiple women but it appears that there’s only one woman that still has his heart. The comedian was a guest on The Hot Tee Talk Show podcast on Wednesday and he opened up about love and his ex-wife Mariah Carey.
"I'm a true romantic. I'm a true believer in love," Nick said. "I will never have a love like I did with Mariah." He continued, “I’m a true believer in love and I allow the capsules of love to be where they lie. I’m not a timeline dude.”
Nick and Mariah got married in 2008 and welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe in 2011. They would get re-married every year but ended up calling it quits in 2014. Their divorce was finalized two years later.
The Wild ‘N Out creator then went on to explain how his life with the “Fantasy” singer was an actual fantasy. “It was literally like a fairytale with Mariah so I would rather it just be that way,” he said. “I appreciate that fantasy because if I tried to go back and it wasn’t the same, I’d be like, ‘Damn, I messed it up. If I had the opportunity, if it could be the way it was, I’m there.”
Since his divorce from the icon, Nick has had seven more children. He shares Golden and Powerful Queen Cannon with former pageant queen Brittany Bell. He also shares another set of twins, Zion and Zillion Cannon, and a baby on the way with DJ Abby De La Rosa, and a son named Zen, who unfortunately passed away at 5 months old due to brain cancer, with model Alyssa Scott. And the last few months he had social media in a frenzy when he confirmed that he was having his ninth child, a boy with model Brie Tiesi.
Nick has said nothing but good things about the mothers of his children, especially Mariah. In 2017, he shared how he and the Grammy award-winner co-parent. “It’s all about love,” he said in an interview with Amazon’s Style Code Live. “You put the kids first, but then when you understand that you have unconditional love for these human beings and you want the best existence for them, then you put whatever differences you may have had aside.”
