Nick Cannon welcomes eighth child, his first with model Bre Tiesi
- Nick Cannon had another child, this time with model Bre Tiesi.
- Tiesi announced the birth Monday in a YouTube video and Instagram post.
- Cannon had eight children with five different women.
Nick Cannon’s partner Bre Tiesi announced on Monday the birth of the TV personality’s eighth child – a son.
Tiesi took to Instagram on Monday evening announcing the birth, writing, “I did it. An all-natural, drug-free home birth.”
She added that she couldn’t have “ask for a more amazing and supportive partner.”
“I couldn’t have done it without you,” Tiesi wrote.
She also posted a video diary of the birth on YouTube, which she said documented her “pregnancy, natural induction, labor and delivery.”
In the 11-minute video, Tiesi appeared to reveal her son’s name. The footage shows Cannon calling the baby “Legendary” while changing his diaper under a neon sign that reads “Legendary Love.”
Tiesi also spoke to Entertainment Tonight before she was born, during which she explained why she chose to have a child with Cannon – who has already had seven children with four other women.
“I don’t really have an opinion on other people’s business. It’s not really my thing,” she told the outlet.
“When it started to happen, I was like, ‘I don’t understand why everyone is so worried. Like, why are you upset about what’s going on in my house?'” she added, according to ET. “For me, it doesn’t really affect me. I understand people’s side and they are used to their conventional relationships. That’s what we’re taught.”
In March, Tiese said she and the “Masked Singer” host had a “really long history” that dates back “almost a decade.”
Cannon has 11-year-old twins named Monroe and Moroccan with his ex-wife, R&B superstar Mariah Carey. He also has a 5-year-old named Golden “Sagon” and a 1-year-old named Powerful Queen with model and former Miss Guam Brittany Bell.
Cannon also has one-year-old twins Zillion and Zion with DJ Abby De La Rosa. His 5-month-old son with model Alyssa Scott has died of brain cancer.
He confirmed he was expecting his eighth child with Tiesi in January, just weeks after Zen’s death.
In October 2021, Cannon said he would try to be single until 2022 after receiving advice from his therapist to take a break before having children. He also said in May that he was considering having a vasectomy after his eighth child, joking that he was “not looking to fully populate the Earth”.
In May, during an interview on “The Big Tigger Morning Show,” Cannon was asked if all the women he fathered children with got along.
“They don’t have to. They all get along with me,” he replied.
Cannon also said in June that he had tried and “failed miserably so many times at monogamy.”
Representatives for Cannon and Tiesi did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
