Nick Cannon Confirms Brittany Bell Is Pregnant with His Third Child

Posted on

Baby No. 3 is on the way for Nick Cannon.

The America’s Got Talent host confirmed during an appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Thursday, that he and former Miss Arizona U.S.A. Brittany Bell are “absolutely” expecting a child together.

“I’ve got a baby on the way,” he told the radio hosts after calling Bell a “special young lady.”

While he and Bell are no longer an item, Cannon, 36, would not call her his “ex,” clarifying that “ex Mariah [Carey] is my last ‘ex.’ Everybody else is people that I’ve known, loved and cared for.”

Cannon and Carey, 46, share two children: 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. The pair split in 2014, but Cannon just confirmed earlier this month that their divorce has been finalized.

“It’s always been amicable, 100 percent. Despite everything, their focus has always been the kids,” a Cannon source tells PEOPLE of the exes. “It wouldn’t have gone down the way it has if it wasn’t amicable. What divorced stars do you know who still celebrate every holiday together? It’s all about family for them.”

She also celebrated a shower with some other former Miss U.S.A.’s on Wednesday.

Wrote Bell on Instagram of the “sweet” celebration: “Miss USA /Miss Universe not only puts you in a rare sisterhood no money can buy.. but your child ends up with some of the most naturally beautiful, sweetest, and strongest women from around the country/world to call Aunties!!”
