“It’s my first time having 12-year-olds, and I have a set of them! And we’re having real conversations,” he said of his kids, who he shares with ex Mariah Carey. “Because, you know, their lives are far from normal. Their mom is one of the biggest entertainers to ever live and their dad is me.”
“They’re so intelligent, they’re so in tune with their own values,” he continued, noting that because of the twins’ inquisitive minds, they’ve started “having challenging conversations sometimes.”
Those challenging conversations include touching on times when their dad had made headlines.
“One thing they do know is that dad f—- up,” Cannon admitted. “[They know] Dad makes mistakes.”
When asked about possibly adding to his brood in the future, Cannon explained that he thinks his family life is working now because he’s a “man of abundance.”
“Everything is challenging, but the fact that I get to see all my children in one day, and get to see them each and every day when I’m in town, even when I’m not in town, I take them with me,” he said. “I love the challenge.”
That said, he noted, “I’m good with my dozen.”
He also shares twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 21 months, and daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, 4 months, with Abby De La Rosa; son Legendary Love, 8 months, with Bre Tiesi; daughter Onyx Ice Cole, 5 months, with LaNisha Cole. He’s also dad to two children with Alyssa Scott, son Zen, who died at 5 months old in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer, and daughter Halo Marie, 3 months.
