Nick Cannon is keeping the stork busy!

Ahead of the birth of his eighth child with model Bre Tiesi, The Nick Cannon Show host, 41, confirmed that he is expecting more children this year while visiting the Lip Service podcast on June 7.

"The stork is on the way," Nick said. "If you thought the numbers I put up in 2021 was…wait 'til 2022! Y'know, there was a lot of kids last year."

Nick's announcement comes less than a week after model Abby De La Rosa—with whom he shares 11-month-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir—confirmed that she is pregnant in a June 3 Instagram post.

In addition to the twins, Nick shares 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. He is also dad to son Golden "Sagon," 4, and daughter Powerful Queen, 17 months, with model Brittany Bell. Nick's 5-month-old son Zen, who he welcomed with model Alyssa Scott, tragically died of brain cancer last December.

During the interview, Nick revealed that shortly after starting The Nick Cannon Show he was encouraged by his therapist to "chill out" and decided to become celibate in October 2021.

However, after the loss of his son, the actor revealed that he "didn't even make it to January."

"I was supposed to make it to the top of the year but, obviously, I started going through some stuff. I got depressed with the loss of my son," Nick explained. "And the thing is, because everybody saw I was so down, everybody was like, 'Let me just give him a little vagina. That's gonna cure it all.'"

He continued, "I fell victim to it because I was in a weak state."

All in all, Nick shared that he was celibate for around "a month and a half strong," adding, "I was trying to do it! I had a new show, new energy, I was dealing with a lot."

When asked if he would ever put an end to his current lifestyle, Nick shut down the idea. "I feel like I'mma live this lifestyle for the rest of my life and I'm very comfortable with it," he said. "I probably have better platonic friendships with women."

Nick shared that, more than anything, he likes "being by myself" than with others, adding, "I value being alone. I like my space."

The Drumline actor also revealed that he has very different relationship dynamics with each of the women in his life. "There's nothing the same. To me, it's a spiritual connection," he shared. "You're gonna be aligned and in tune with people at certain different levels."

"I'm at a point in my life, I don't want to have pointless sex. This needs to be something. We need to reach a certain level emotionally, spiritually," he said. "And that's probably why it ends up in children because I'm not interacting with anybody that I don't really have a true love and, like, I want to build something with."
