Nick Cannon Admits Not Spending Enough Time With His Kids: I’m Spread Too Thin

Having multiple kids makes it hard for Nick Cannon to spend time with them and he knows it.

During a recent interview, the 42-year-old spoke candidly about where he falls short as a father to his 11 children. He revealed that making adequate time for the brood has been a challenge for him.

Nick Cannon stated,

“Being a father of multiple kids, it’s always the biggest guilt on me is that I don’t get to spend enough time with all my children.”

He then went on to explain the reason why he was having so much trouble being there for his children,

“One ’cause I’m constantly working and two because I’m just spread thin.”

This is a shortcoming that Nick Cannon’s ex-wife has reportedly noticed. According to an insider, Mariah Carey requested that “The Masked Singer” make sure their 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe see him as often as possible.

Is this a similar story with the other four women he shares children with?

As of now, Nick is coparenting with Brittney Bell, mother of Golden Sagon, 5, Powerful Queen, 1, and Rise, 3 months. There is also Abby De La Rosa, mother of twins Zion and Zillionaire and Beautiful Zeppelin, a 1-week-old infant. Bre Tiesi is the mother of 5-month-old Legendary Love. The mother of 2-month-old Onyx Ice Cole is model Lanisha Cole. Pretty soon, a 12th baby will be welcomed into the fold when Alyssa Scott gives birth.

While spending enough time with each child has been difficult, losing one has probably been painful. In 2021, he and Alyssa Scott’s son Zen succumbed to high-grade glioma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer.

In the interview, Nick explained the reason he did not want his infant son to go through chemotherapy.

He said,

“Seeing your son hooked up to all of those machines – and he had to go for a shunt two or three times, and that was heartbreaking every time – even in that short amount of time, I couldn’t imagine him having to go through chemo.”

As a patient with lupus, Cannon said he experienced chemo himself as an adult and “knew what it did to me.”
