Nick Cannon might have 11 children – six sons and five daughters – with six women, but that doesn’t stop him from being a good father to each and every one of them. He thoroughly enjoys being a father and has a deep appreciation for the mothers of his children. He has a lot of kids, but he makes it work.
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m probably engaged throughout my children’s day, more often than the average adult can be,” he said in an interview with Men’s Health back in June 2022. “If I’m not physically in the same city with my kids, I’m talking to them before they go to school via FaceTime and stuff.”
And while holidays might be a little hectic with 11 children, Nick Cannon finds a way to be present and engaged. That’s why it was no surprise to see the 42-year-old spend time with every last one of his kids on Easter Sunday – not only that, but he dressed up as the Easter Bunny and shared pictures of it all!

He took to his Instagram Story to share most of those photos, but he also shared the moment he revealed he was the Easter Bunny to Legendary Love Cannon – his 9-month-old son that he shares with Bre Tiesi.
“It was in this moment that Legendary was throughly confused! ????????Easter 2023 ????????” the caption read.
If you look closely, you’ll see the adorable shirt Legendary was wearing in the photo – it reads “I love it when you call me Big Hoppa.” You can tell Legendary was a little befuddled when he saw it was his daddy behind the costume. Of course, it was just one of the many moments he shared with his children.
In addition to his son with Tiesi, Cannon also shares twins with Mariah Carey, three children with Brittany Bell, two children with Alyssa Scott (one passed away), three children (including twins) with Abby De La Rosa, and a daughter with LaNisha Cole. Who knows, maybe he’ll have more next year!
In an interview with Audacy’s 104.1 – The Home Team Morning Show – Cannon was asked if he plans on adding more children to his growing family. He said that he doesn’t really have an answer because he originally never planned on having more than two kids. Now that he has 11 kids, anything can happen!
Why Do They Call Nick Cannon the Provider?
In his interview with Audacy’s 104.1 two weeks ago, Nick Cannon talked about his financial situation with the six mothers of his children. He explained he doesn’t give them a monthly allowance or spending limit each month and, instead, makes sure they have access to whatever they need, whenever they need it.
“It ain’t even about a monthly allowance or amount of money because I don’t give myself that. What they need, they get it… That’s why they call me the provider,” he said – adding that there has never been anything that the mothers of his children have needed that they haven’t gotten. That’s a true provider!
He also talked about the love and respect he shows for each of the mothers of his children. He’s not one to have a baby with anyone he comes across – he has a deep appreciation and admiration for them. While he doesn’t consider himself good at relationships, he considers himself a good friend and father.

“I have so much respect and admiration for the individual. Everybody has their challenges – but when you really understand this woman has given the greatest sacrifice and sacrificed her body to bring a child into this world, that’s the best gift any man could ask for,” he said in his recent interview.
