Nick Cannon Makes BIG Mistake on Mother’s Day

Nick Cannon admits he dropped the ball in a big way on Mother’s Day.

Now, it’s no secret that Cannon has six different women in his life who are the mothers of his 12 children. And as a result, it’s no surprise things can get a bit confusing for him.

And on the latest episode of his radio show, Cannon admits he accidentally became confused while attempting to celebrate Mother’s Day with all six of his children’s mothers. 

“I tried my best, I really did,” Cannon admitted before sharing the mistake he made.

“I thought it would be really, really good to — you know, I could buy, whatever you know — to show people how you really feel, write it down,” Cannon continued, adding that he made the decision to do “handwritten messages from the heart” to the six women.

“So then as I’m writing the handwritten message, I get the cards mixed up. And then so when one baby mama reads the card about how I feel about the other baby mama …” Whoops…

Cannon continued adding, “See if I would just got some generic sh** that everybody else got, that wouldn’t have happened.” It’s unclear how the women reacted when they received the wrong handwritten letter.

As Mamas Uncut previously reported, while talking with the Los Angeles Times, Cannon admitted that he’s “been villainized. I hear all the time, ‘You can’t be present for all those children.’ So therefore I get this deadbeat dad title.”

But as Cannon continued, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, he admits he “keeps a schedule for each kid,” and in order to get one-on-one time with all of them, he takes pride in being the one that “drives them to their extracurricular activities.”

His only goal is to make sure his 12 children know he will always be there for them no matter what. “It’s not about what I do for you or what I say to you, it’s about how you feel when I’m with you,” Cannon explained when describing his parenting style. 

“If you feel loved when you see your dad, that’s what’s gonna resonate.”

In a previous interview, Cannon admitted his goal is to be a provider for his kids and their mothers. “It ain’t even about a monthly allowance or amount of money because I don’t give myself that,” he said a few days ago. “What they need, they get it… That’s why they call me the provider.”

But at the same time, caring for his large family costs him about $3 million a year. As a result, Cannon’s work schedule will always remain busy. 

“When you think about my lifestyle, I have to generate at least $100 million a year,” Nick told the LA Times. “Everybody thinks Ryan Seacrest has tons of money. I do everything that he does times 10. Well, not times 10—times three. Because he does a lot.”

Now, Cannon says he’s in a place where he ignores what the public thinks about him, and letting his actions speak for themselves. “I’m really at a place now where I don’t care what people know. I’d rather just operate. It’s more about really being a good person instead of telling people you’re a good person.”

Cannon also finally answered why he decided to have so many kids. He told the LA Times that his big family became a reality because he wanted to make his many partners happy “after they expressed their desires to have kids soon.”

“A lot of them are in the same age group,” he said. “And I just wanted to give them what they desired. I kept saying, ‘I can handle it.'”

Currently, Cannon is father to 12-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom he shared with ex-wife Mariah Carey. He shares 6-year-old son Golden “Sagon,” 2-year-old Powerful Queen, and 7-month-old son Rise Messiah with Brittany Bell. He and Abby De La Rosa share 22-month-old twins Zion and Zillion and 5-month-old daughter Beautiful Zeppelin. He also shares his 10-month-old son Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi and his 7-month-old daughter Onyx Ice with LaNisha Cole. Cannon and Alyssa Scott just welcomed a daughter into the world 4 months ago, Halo Marie. He and Scott also shared a 5-month-old son, Zen, who passed away in December 2021 from a brain tumor.

And as for how he manages to keep the peace in a family with so many moving parts, Cannon admits he follows the lead of his partners. “I go along with it. I know that every mother is making decisions based on love and what they believe is best for the child.”
