“I just want them to strive for something greater than entertainment. I’m one of those believers in teachers, professors, heart surgeons. That’s what I’m rooting for. If I could get a scientist, that’d be amazing.”
Even though Cannon wants his kids to strive for something outside of the entertainment industry, he’s grateful for the career he and his wife have.
“My wife is so understanding because she’s just as busy and just as focused as I am, so it’s kind of like the perfect match. I love my career and I love being in entertainment, so it never really feels like an occupation.”
Even though “being a father and being a husband comes first,” he makes sure his wife knows how much he loves her. He explained:
“Everybody knows I’m obsessed with my wife. I’m married to Mariah Carey. It doesn’t get better than that. I’d be an idiot to do anything wrong. I worship my wife. Have you seen my back? My back says ‘Mariah Forever.’ “
Awwww isn’t that cute!
