Nick Cannon Reveals Which Child He Spends The Most Time With

Nick Cannon says that he spends the "most time" with his 8-month-old daughter, Onyx, whom he shares with LaNisha Cole. Cannon discussed his relationship with Cole and their daughter during an appearance on The Jason Lee Podcast last week. In total, Cannon has fathered 12 kids with six different women.

“I’m with her, at least, three times a week, for the full day,” Cannon revealed. “But I don’t put that out there in the media, social media [because] it’s not for them.” He added that he and LaNisha Cole “have a super strong understanding” and their “co-parenting operation is so solid.”

Cannon also mentioned that he has a nursery set up in his office so he can work with his kids around. “If you see me on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, my daughter [Onyx] is right next to me –whether I’m on set,” Cannon continued. "I’m literally gonna leave here to make sure that I can spend the most time with her."

The comments come after Cannon recently forgot Onyx while naming all 12 of his kids during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show in April. He joked during the show that his slip up was going to get him in trouble. After the incident went viral on social media, Cole posted a tribute to Onyx on Instagram, sharing several pictures. “My whole world … the most beautiful little girl,” she captioned the pics. “I will do everything I can every single day to make sure she knows how special she is and how much I love and adore her. I pray every day for strength, guidance, and peace. Regardless of where I’m at on my path, I know that God’s got me. And I’ve got Onyx.”

All-in-all, Cannon has kids with his ex-wife, Mariah Carey, as well as DJ Abby De La Rosa, Brittany Bell, Bre Tiesi, Alyssa Scott, and LaNisha Cole. He recently went viral for mixing up his mother's day cards for all the ladies in his life.
