LaNisha Cole, the mother of Nick Cannon's ninth child Onyx, just shut down rumors that she's expecting another baby. Moreover, the model and actress criticized fans for jumping down her throat for not posting weight fast enough. She posted to her Instagram story: “No I’m not pregnant again,” on Thursday (February 2). Furthermore, she continued to air out her frustrations. “You guys are so used to SnapBack culture that you can’t let a woman be at peace with not losing her baby weight in a week.” Also, the 40-year-old said her “body is bigger," but isn't "in any rush to lose the weight.” She believes “it’ll come off in due time.”

“Until then there’s just more of me to love lol,” she stated cheekily. In addition, she posted a selfie-style video where she’s “thicker in the face” and “thicker in the waist. I haven’t been working out like I used to just because I’ve been busy taking care of the empress and working,” she continued. "As a new mom I have so many other things that are more of a priority for me. Empress Onyx has been ruling my life and I'm ok with it.

"She's the boss of me," she concluded. "I'll work out again when she allows me to." Furthermore, Cole and Cannon shocked (or mildly surprised) the world when they welcomed Onyx in September of 2022. Upon her birth, the TV host called Cole "one of the most guileless, peaceful and nonconfrontational kind souls.” However, she hasn't posted anything regarding Cannon since Onyx's church dedication last October.

Meanwhile, she actually aimed some comments at her baby daddy, apparently. “[Onyx] is incredibly blessed and is surrounded by so much love," Cole posted. It’s not fake IG photo op love." Moreover, the media star posted holiday snaps with his other children, co-parented with five other women, just moments before. "Calling me baby mama #538 every time I say the sky is blue is uncalled for and it’s getting old,” she shared days later. Regardless of their status, log back into HNHH for the latest on Nick Cannon's love life.
