Nick Cannon, has quietly welcomed his 9th newborn with Lanisha cole this week while two more unborn babies the 10th and 11th are on the way.
On Thursday in the early evening hours, 41 year old cannon and model 40 year old Lanisha Cole, both announced the birth of their first child together on Instagram. In the past, Cannon has used artistic photoshoots with the mothers of the babies to announce his pregnancies before they are born; however, this time, he withheld information about his pregnancy from Lanisha Cole until after she gave birth, at which point he revealed the baby’s name is Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.
Cannon shared a picture of himself with Onyx, and Cole, with his song “I Do” playing in the background on IG.
“Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON… 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.”
With his lengthy post announcing the birth of Onyx, Nick Cannon got ahead of the online discussion. He requested that people who were in awe of the fact that he had fathered nine children and was expecting another two to refrain from criticizing him. Abby De La Rosa and Brittney Bell, with whom Cannon already has two children in common, are both expecting babies.
“As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children.”
