Nick Cannon has apologised for the ‘pain and confusion’ he may have caused after announcing that he is expecting his eighth child, saying he had gone into ‘too much detail’ while speaking about the news in the wake of his son’s death.
According to LAD Bible, Cannon has twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with his ex-wife Mariah Carey, along with a four-year-old named Golden Sagon and one-year-old called Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell.
He has also fathered seven-month-old twins, Zion and Zillion, with Abby De La Rosa.
But the TV host was devastated late last year when Zen, the five-month-old son he shared with Alyssa Scott, died from a brain tumour.
Now Cannon has announced that he’s got another baby on the way with model Bre Tiesi, having held a gender reveal party.
However, he has since apologised for his actions, saying he ‘probably misspoke’ and could have dealt better with such ‘delicate and sensitive’ discussions – and that it may have felt like he was making comparisons between his late son Zen and the child he is expecting.
In a YouTube video, Cannon said: “I actually would like to take a moment just to be honest and even take a moment to listen and reflect on what I was saying and what’s popping and apologise properly.
“I’d like to address some of the comments I made on Monday’s show. I wish to always protect and respect the privacy of the mothers of all my children and, you know me, I just really want to be sincere and whether that’s someone who’s new or someone who’s had my child and I have such a great relationship and great admiration for everyone in my life.
