**UPDATED DECEMBER 14, 2022**

Well, another day, another dollar… and another kid for Nick Cannon!

It seems as if every time the entertainer trends in the press, it’s because he has another child on the way. Once again, this was the case. In 2022 alone, he has welcomed 5 kids. In case you lost count (which is becoming easier and easier to do), Nick will soon be the father of 12 kids in total!

Yes, you read that right. TWELVE!

Regardless of the situation (because we are NOT here to judge), babies are a blessing, and we have to admit, the kids are adorable!

So, without further ado, here is a look at Nick’s growing clan of children!

This is a developing story… obviously.

1. Moroccan & Monroe (age 11)

Of course, we have to start with the OGs! Twins Moroccan and Monroe (born on April 30, 2011) are Nick’s oldest children from his one and only marriage to music icon Mariah Carey. 

2. Golden Sagon (age 5), Powerful Queen (age 1), and Rise Messiah (3 months)

On Feb. 21, 2017, Nick welcomed his third child, son Golden Sagon, with model and former Miss Arizona USA Brittany Bell. Four years later, on Dec. 23, 2020, they welcomed their second child, Powerful Queen. They added to their family once again on September 23, 2022, as Nick confirmed the birth of their third child together (and his 10th overall), son Rise Messiah. 

3. Twins Zion Mixolydian & Zillion Heir (age 1) and Beautiful Zeppelin (1 month)

On June 14, 2021, Nick welcomed a second set of twins! He shares sons Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with model and DJ Abby De La Rosa. Their third child, daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, was born on November 11, 2022. 

4. Zen (Passed Away at 5 Months) & Halo Marie (newborn)

Less than two weeks after Zion and Zillion’s births, Nick welcomed son Zen on June 23, 2021 with model Alyssa Scott. Sadly, Zen was soon diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. He passed away that December at just 5 months old. 

In November of 2022, it was confirmed that Alyssa was pregnant with her and Nick’s second child together, his 12th child. On December 14, they welcomed a daughter, Halo Marie Cannon. 

5. Legendary Love (5 months)

Back in January, Nick revealed that he was expecting a son with model Bre Tiesi, the ex-wife of football player Johnny Manziel. They welcomed son Legendary Love just this past July. 

6. Onyx Ice (3 months)

On Sept. 14, 2022, Nick welcomed his 9th child, daughter Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, with model/photographer Lanisha Cole.

On his Instagram, he posted “Once again, today I am in awe of the Devine Feminine! God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an Angel here on earth. I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities.”
