NICK Cannon made headlines this week after welcoming his fifth and sixth child with his third baby mama.
The comedian – who previously praised the "polyamorous" lifestyle – has just become a dad to twins Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa.
And while Nick, 40, is now a father to six children – it looks like the comedian is showing no signs of slowing down.
The Nickelodeon alum is believed to be expecting his seventh child with his fourth baby mama – pregnant model Alyssa Scott.
Their baby would be his fourth child in a year.
As baffled fans try to make sense of Nick's growing family, we take a look inside the rapper's wild love life.
Nick married Mariah Carey in 2008 after a whirlwind romance and shares two kids with her – nine-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan Scott.
They filed for divorce in 2014, briefly reunited in 2015 and formally divorced a year later.
The Masked Singer host insisted earlier this year that the exes have an amicable co-parenting relationship and that he can never "hold a candle" to Mariah.
Reflecting on their romance, he told Variety: “I always used to say it worked so well because it was a healthy balance."
"I had no problem falling back. It was never a competition with me. It was like, ‘I’ll turn mine off so she can turn hers on.’ I was comfortable in myself and who I was.”
The Drumline star added: “My ego outside the house was grand but in the house it was healthy. I was there to be in support of whatever she wanted to do.
"I mean, it’s Mariah Carey. How am I supposed to be? She’s one of the most talented women to ever [be on] this planet. I can’t hold a candle to that woman.”
Nick began dating model and beauty pageant queen Brittany Bell during his split with Mariah in 2015.
The two were on and off for a while and she gave birth to their son Golden "Sagon" while they were supposedly “on a break” back in 2017.
The pair reportedly split for good but they were spotted on November 9, 2020, holding hands leaving a restaurant in Malibu, California, after celebrating her 33rd birthday.
In December 2020, Brittany announced on her Instagram the birth of her second child, Powerful Queen, with Nick.
Nick also dated model Jessica White for several months last summer.
The two split in August 2020 just a few days after Brittany posted a photo of her baby bump on social media.
Jessica did not explain why they split but alluded to “not being valued” in an Instagram post.
She shared a comment on her Instagram saying: “Someone who values you, wouldn’t ever put themselves in a position to lose you.
“I’m so blessed, I’m whole, and ready to embrace a single life free from all baggage, I wish nothing but the best for @nickcannon."
It's unclear when Nick started dating Abby De La Rosa, although in April 2021 they revealed they were expecting twins together.
Nick went shirtless while posing next to a then-pregnant Abby in an intimate maternity shoot.
On Wednesday, Abby announced the birth of her twin boys who arrived earlier this week.
“JUNE 14, 2021,” she wrote on Instagram. “Welcome to the world Zion Mixolydian Cannon & ZIllion Heir Cannon #Myworld #twinboys.”
She also posted a photo of each of the baby's tiny hands holding on to her fingers to her Instagram stories.
But it looks like there's already trouble in paradise for Abby and Nick as she recently deleted all traces of Nick from Instagram.
Her deleting spree comes after Nick's "baby mama", Alyssa Scott, revealed she's in her "final days" of pregnancy.
In October last year, Alyssa was photographed being taken out on a date night by the TV personality on her birthday.
Alyssa was reportedly a model on Cannon's Wild 'n Out and began trending last month after posting a pregnancy photo of herself and shared the name of her unborn child.
She had previously kept details about the father of her unborn child quiet, but appeared to confirm Cannon is the dad by sharing the full name she’s planning on giving her son.
Alyssa plans to call her unborn baby, Zen S. Cannon, the model confirmed when asked about Nick.
Nick's multiple baby mamas should come as no surprise after he revealed he 'respects a polyamorous situation'.
After he divorced Mariah in 2016, Nick vowed to "never" marry again.
In speaking to T.I. on his podcast, expediTIously, he explained: "I believe that relationships and marriage are designed to please women.
"Once I stepped away from my marriage with Mariah, I knew I would never get married again."
"I knew I’d never be in a relationship again and that I’d never want to be married again. I respect a polyamorous situation," he confessed.
"But for me, that’s too many rules. I don’t want to answer to anybody. I want to be by myself forever. I got ‘lonesome’ tattooed on my neck. I’m good.
"I got kids by different women and I want more kids but I don’t want to be responsible for no body else’s happiness.
"I’m still trying to get my s**t together," he shared.
