As much as Nick Cannon loves all of his children, and as much as he respects their mothers, even he has admitted it might be time to revisit the ole birth control. “I don’t have the bandwidth for it anymore,” he said on “The Language of Love” podcast, according to People. “Because I feel like I do owe the women that are currently in my life, I owe them as much energy, time, and effort as I possibly [can] — especially my kids.”
Before Bre Tiesi became pregnant with Cannon’s eighth child, however, Cannon was singing a slightly different tune. In a “Breakfast Club” interview with Charlamagne Tha God, via Billboard, Cannon said he ultimately wanted 10 or 12 children. “The beauty of fatherhood, man, when you really talk about the essence of living as a father, I’ve learned so much just from my children,” he said in the interview. He also explained why he thinks he shouldn’t restrict his baby-making to just one woman. “That’s just to classify property when you think you about it … just the idea that ‘a man should have one woman,’ we shouldn’t have anything. I have no ownership over this person.”
We’ve yet to hear from the mothers in question what their thoughts on this take are, but we’ll just go ahead and assume the best.
