Nick Cannon Responds After Saweetie Tweets That She Wants 'Babies'
Nick Cannon is thinking about fatherhood.
Cannon, 41, soon responded to the 28-year-old rapper's message with several emojis, including a hand-raising icon. Though the Masked Singer host wrote back without words, many fans interpreted the tweet as Cannon saying he'd step forward.
The father of seven's public flirtation arrives after he announced he's committed to celibacy, at least until the new year.
"I'm chilling out. I'm kinda stepping away, getting focused, going within, getting my celibacy on," Cannon said in October on the Drink Champs podcast. "I have enough children, enough frolicking. I'm good right now. ... I'm trying. I didn't say I'm perfect."
"I love all my kids," he continued.
Cannon welcomed twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa on June 14. His son Zen, whom he shares with model Alyssa Scott, was born nine days after Zion and Zillion. Additionally, Cannon welcomed daughter Powerful Queen last December with Brittany Bell, with whom he also shares 4-year-old son Golden. Cannon is also dad to 10-year-old twins (son Moroccan and daughter Monroe) with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
"I'm celibate right now. ... I'm trying to go— I'm gonna see if I can make it to 2022," the star said on the podcast. "... I'm trying to be the best father I can be, the best businessman I can be."
"I'm not sitting out here planning it. My therapist says I should be celibate," the comedian said. "I come from a big family, I have several siblings, [and] being raised in an unorthodox family by my grandparents at times, I've experienced such a wide range of upbringing that I have such a love and passion for kids and family. I want a big family too. The Lord has blessed me with what I asked. Ask and you shall receive."
"I don't have no accident," he said at the time. "Trust me, there's a lot of people that I could've gotten pregnant that I didn't. ... The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant."
