Nick Cannon is reportedly expecting his ninth baby.
According to TMZ, the actor and TV host is having another baby with DJ and model Abby De La Rosa, who he had twin boys with back in June 2021. It’s believed this time, the couple are expecting a baby girl.
De La Rosa also quietly confirmed the news on Instagram days ago.
“IM PREGNANT 🥰 Another set of twins?!” she teased, referring to her and Cannon’s twin boys Zion and Zillion.
Speaking on the Lip Service podcast earlier this week, Cannon, 41, responded to speculation he has “three babies on the way” and hinted the rumours were true.
“When you say ‘on the way… ‘ What count are you at? Let’s just put it this way… the stork is on the way,” Cannon told the hosts.
Cannon was also asked if he was expecting three babies, to which he responded: “I don’t know, it could be.”
The actor, who welcomed three children in 2021 alone, joked he was planning on breaking his own personal record.
“If you thought it was a lot of kids last year…” he laughed during the interview.
In June 2021, Cannon welcomed twin sons Zion and Zillion with De La Rosa.
The following month, he had son Zen with Alyssa Scott. Zen died at five months of age in December 2021 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
In May this year, Cannon told E! News’ Daily Pop he was considering a vasectomy as he awaited the birth of his eighth child with girlfriend Bre Tiesi.
“I already went and got my vasectomy consultation,” he told hosts Justin Sylvester and Loni Love.
“I ain’t looking to populate the Earth completely, but I’m definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have.”

During his conversation with Lip Service, Cannon spoke about his plans to have a vasectomy and admitted his therapist advised him to “chill out” from impregnating women.
“So I was like, ‘Yo, let’s try celibacy.’ And that was like October… I didn’t even make it to [January]. I was supposed to make it to the top of the year,” he explained.
“Then obviously I started going through some stuff … I got depressed with the loss of my son. So in December… the thing is everybody saw I was so down.”
Cannon said he only practiced celibacy for “a month and a half” but broke his own rule around Christmas last year.
Using pregnancy maths, the hosts asked Cannon if they should expect a few children to be born in September and October.
“Ya’ll are pretty good at math,” he simply responded.
Cannon is also father to 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey, as well as Golden, age five, and Powerful Queen, one, with Brittany Bell.
In January, the talk show host announced he was expecting his eighth child with his model girlfriend Bre.
