From rapping to hosting shows like Wild'N Out and The Masked Singer, TV host, comedian, and entertainer Nick Cannon's resume is packed and applause-worthy. But these days, fans and followers might just be the most impressed by his role as a dad of six. Here's everything you need to know about the multi-hyphenate's growing family.

How Many Kids Does Nick Cannon Have?

Nick Cannon, 41, is a dad of six with two on the way. He's the father of 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, son Golden, 5, daughter Powerful, 1, and 1-year-old twin sons Zion and Zillion.

He and model Alyssa Scott welcomed a child named Zen who tragically died at just 5 months old last December after a battle with brain cancer caused by the condition Hydrocephalus.

Who Is Nick Cannon Co-parenting With?

Cannon became a dad for the first time with then-wife Mariah Carey, to whom he was married from 2008 to 2016. Since the couple split, Cannon has called Carey one of his "best friends," for whom he has "so much respect."

Brittany Bell, a model and former pageant titleholder, is the mom of 5-year-old Golden and 1-year-old Powerful.

And Cannon is raising 1-year-old twins Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa, a broadcast professional and DJ, who is currently expecting their third baby together, due on October 25.

While celebrating the twin boys' birthday this month, Cannon praised De La Rosa on Instagram, writing, "@hiabbydelarosa you are Super Woman!! I will make it my mission to let the boys know how honored and privileged they are to have such an amazing, loving, strong, resilient and magnificent Mother!" he wrote. "It's their birthday today but you're the one that should be celebrated!!"

Cannon is also expecting a son with real estate agent and model Bre Tiesi. Tiesi shared photos of the couple babymooning last month.

Nick Cannon's Family: What the Star Has Said About His Growing Brood

Last month, Cannon appeared on the It's Tricky with Raquel Harper podcast, noting that he's a fan of family and fatherhood, but a second marriage isn't in the cards. "I love my family, and I love all of my children and every woman that's given me the blessing to experience that, but marriage and all that goes into that, it's a lot," shared the entertainer. "I mean, everybody who's married knows that it is. You're literally entering a partnership that says, 'We're two become one.' I'm not built for that."

He addressed his open relationships, sharing that he doesn't subscribe to "the traditional sense of monogamy."

"I let [the women I have children with] know from the gate [about my views towards marriage]. It's not out of disrespect, it's more respect," he explained. "I'm going to come to you as honest as I possibly can. This is who I am, this is what I struggle with, this is where I feel like I excel. If we can coexist, you're responsible for your happiness. If I can add to it, I'm here. If I don't add to it, I shouldn't be here."

Looking toward the future, it seems Cannon is ready to call his family complete. Speaking to E! News' Daily Pop in May, Cannon shared, "I already went and got my vasectomy consultation. I ain't looking to populate the Earth completely, but I'm definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have."
