Nick Cannon has claimed that having 12 children was a calling from God while discussing his ‘miracle’ sperm and also admitting that he’s open to more kids.
Speaking with Dr. Laura Berman on her The Language of Love podcast, the 42-year-old Wild ‘N Out host discussed how having a dozen kids — whom he shares with six different women was a calling from God.
After Berman stated that several of the women were on ‘full on birth control and gotten pregnant’ and joked that he has ‘magic sperm’ Nick replied, ‘I lend that type of stuff to God. Those are miracles.’
Cannon and Berman also joked about his story resembling that of Abraham in the Bible, with Cannon adding, ‘I’ve never heard that clarity, but I’ve heard “Yo, you’re going to be a father of many. You’re a great influence, your lineage, your offspring are going to do great things.”‘
The actor also shared that he’s open to having more children, telling Berman, ‘The more the merrier!’
At one point Berman asked, ‘Did God tell you to have all these babies?’ Canon said that he’s gotten in trouble for saying that before and shared that when people will ask him if he’s done having children, his response is, ‘Only God can let me know when I’m done.’
‘As much as I was open to every single child that I have, I can’t say the majority of them were planned,’ he went on.
‘If you would have told me in 2012 when I was still married and just diagnosed with Lupus that 10 years from now… that I would have 12 children, I would be like f**k out of here!’
