Nick Cannon is expanding his family by having a new child.
The Wild N’ Out host, 41, made the announcement that he is expecting his ninth child, his third with model Brittany Bell, on Instagram on Wednesday August 24.
A video montage of Cannon and Bell from a maternity photo-shoot, in which Bell displays her bare baby bump, was included with the announcement. Along with shooting pictures of their two kids—son Golden Sagon, 5, and daughter Powerful Queen, 19 months—he and Bell were also seen in the clip.
Nick Cannon captioned his instagram post “Time Stopped and This Happened… @missbbell ❤️😍🥰🌞 #Sunshine #SonRISE.”
Along with the Golden and Powerful, Cannon also has a newborn boy named Legendary Love and 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-Mariah Carey. He is also the father of 13-month-old twins Zion and Zillion, who he shares with Abby De La Rosa, who is carrying her third child.
With Alyssa Scott, Nick Cannon had a baby named Zen, who passed away in December 2021 at the age of five months after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
The comedian has previously declared that he will have more children this year.
When questioned if rumors that he had children during the Lip Service podcast “He said, “When you say ‘on the way…’ What count are you at?” in agreement with their accuracy. Just to put it simply, the stork is on its way.”
In a May interview with PEOPLE, Cannon was candid about the happiness he experiences as a father. As a father, he said, “I just wake up excited every day.” “I’m giddy about each of my children. continually, from every angle. from when they were in first grade and received Citizen of the Month awards until when new ones were born.”
