Nick Cannon has revealed is taking a break from having more kids after his therapist suggested he tried celibacy following the birth of his 7th child.
The American actor, who is set to launch his eponymous daytime talk show, spoke to Entertainment Tonight about recently welcoming new babies to his family over the past year, mentioning that his therapist suggested he be celibate.
“I’m not sitting out here planning it. My therapist says I should be celibate,” Cannon, 40, told the outlet, adding in jest, “Okay, give me a break bus. I’m [gonna] take a break from having kids.”
Cannon continued, “I come from a big family, I have several siblings, [and] being raised in an unorthodox family by my grandparents at times, I’ve experienced such a wide range of upbringing that I have such a love and passion for kids and family. I want a big family too. The Lord has blessed me with what I asked. Ask and you shall receive.”
The star added that he wants to be “transparent” about his personal life on his syndicated talk show: “[I’ve] never been a person that’s shied away from talking about my life. But I want to refocus it on others. I’m gonna be talking for an hour each and every day, hopefully, people get to know me in a very intimate way. If I’m in the headlines the night before, I’m definitely talking about it the next morning.”
Nick’s seven children include his first set of twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, with his former wife, singer Mariah Carey. He has a daughter, Powerful Queen, and a son, Golden, with model Brittany Bell. He also has twin boys born in June, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with professional DJ, Abby De La Rosa. Most recently, his youngest son, Zen, was born in July with model Alyssa Scott.
