Nick Cannon is in with the family!

The entertainer was spotted at ROKU in Los Angeles Thursday night on a date with TLC’s Chilli – and her mom.

Arriving around 8 p.m., the singer, 45, and her mom, Ava, requested a “relatively exclusive” table before Cannon, 35, joined them 15 minutes later.

“Nick was super engaged with Chilli and her mom and very animated,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE exclusively. “They were laughing and giggling and seemed to be telling lots of jokes.”

Last month, Cannon demurred when asked about rumors he was dating the TLC singer, saying, “I would be so lucky to be able to be called ‘dating’ her. This is all new to me. I’m not ready for titles and all that stuff.”

According to the onlooker, the budding couple were “very warm” towards each other and dined on yellowtail sashimi, spicy tuna on crispy rice and baked crab hand rolls.

While Chilli did not drink any alcohol, Cannon sipped on a few cocktails. “They all departed the restaurant together around 9:30 p.m.,” says the onlooker.

Cannon and ex-wife Mariah Carey filed for divorce last January after six years of marriage. They share two children – 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan – and Carey is now engaged to Australian billionaire business James Packer.
