Television personality Nick Cannon, the father of nearly a dozen kids, admits he’s “failed miserably so many times at monogamy” — and believes that the idea of marriage could still be in his future following his divorce from pop star Mariah Carey after eight years of marriage in 2016.

During the 41-year-old television host’s appearance with Shelley Wade on her new podcast “All The Way with Shelly Wade,” Cannon joked about his multiple “mid-life crises” of late. It comes following a baby boom from the superstar — who has dated several women and fathered multiple children since his divorce. It starts at the 34:53 minute mark here.

“I’ve failed miserably so many times at monogamy and relationships,” the “Masked Singer” host shared when Wade asked if he would ever get married again.


“But God ain’t done with me,” he added. “We’re gonna figure it out.”

The host pressed Cannon on what it would take for him to walk down the aisle again, noting that the rapper doesn’t “have a problem getting women, for sure.”

“I’ve probably had a few mid-life crises,” Cannon laughed. “As I’m liking the man that I’m growing into. And I feel like [I’d marry] someone who will understand me and can stand by me … where you’re weak, they’re strong.”

“And if I can ever find somebody that knows how to hold me down through all my madness, through all my chaos and toxicity, that’s probably somebody I could rock with for life,” the actor continued.

Nick and Carey welcomed twins to the world in 2011. Since then, he’s welcomed a son and daughter with model Brittany Bell and has 9-month-old twins with DJ Abby De La Rosa. He also welcomed a son Zen with singer Alyssa Scott, 28, though the little boy died of brain cancer in December of 2021 at 5 months old.

In January, the TV host announced that model Bre Tiesi is expecting his child. Reports have also surfaced that Cannon is the father of another baby with De La Rosa. She recently shared she’s expecting and teased she could be welcoming twins again, but did not share who the father was.

When asked recently by radio host Angela Yee just how many children the rapper was expecting, he gave a vague answer and said the “stork is on the way.”

Yee inquired, “When you say ‘on the way … ‘ What count are you at?” Cannon replied, “Let’s just put it this way … the stork is on the way.”
