The father of 12 was asked to name his children and, well, he forgot...

With names like Powerful Queen and Legendary Love, you would think it would be easy for Nick Cannon to remember the unique names he gave his children. 

The actor and TV host made headlines over the past few years after welcoming four children in six months between 2020 and 2021. He then welcomed five children from five different women in 2022.

Nick has a total of 12 children - including his son Zen who sadly passed away in late 2021

Despite spending the Easter weekend with several of his children, Nick struggled to name all of his children during a recent interview on 'The Howard Stern Show'. 

"I can name all of them, of course. Can't you name all of your kids?" the 42-year-old asked.

He successfully named 11 of his children including Moroccan and Monroe whom he shares with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. But he accidentally left out his daughter Onyx Ice.

Nick Cannon and LaNisha Cole

Onyx is Nick's ninth child. She was born in September 2022. 

"Today I am in Awe of the Devine Feminine! God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an Angel here on earth. I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities," he captioned a picture from the delivery. 

LaNisha Cole is one of Nick's newest baby mamas. She is also the only mother of his children who has seemingly thrown shade at him. 

She shared an Instagram post in December that appeared to be directed at 'The Masked Singer' host. 

“It’s not easy but I have to do it for my daughter. She is incredibly blessed and is surrounded by so much love – and it’s not fake IG photo op love – it’s real day in and day out love," LaNisha wrote on her Instagram Story after Nick was spotted taking Christmas pictures with some of his children.

Fans questioned why she did not feature in some of his posts like some of his other baby mamas. 


One day later, LaNisha took to Instagram again to praise her partner Brian Paul Kuba.

“He’s been there every single day since the beginning. Good days and hard days plus everything in between.” 

Shortly after the drama, Nick paid LaNisha and Onyx a visit. They were spotted with their daughter at a baby class. 

"Coparenting is a breeze when you see eye to eye. It's all about this little one, our Onyx."

Nick Cannon Child Support

Nick recently revealed that he pays over R50-million for child support a year for all his children. He reportedly has a net worth of around $20-million (R362m).

The 'Love Don't Cost A Thing' actor can clearly support all 12 of his children but many have questioned how much quality time he gets to spend with them all. 

Here's a look at what social media users had to say about Nick forgetting to mention his daughter Onyx Ice: 

"Howard Stern asked Nick Cannon to name [all] his kids and Nick forgot one...the name of the only baby he had by a Black (on both sides) woman. Interesting..." one Twitter user wrote.

Another tweep added: "If Nick Cannon can’t even remember all his kids names he can hang up remembering all them d**n birthdays."

"I follow all of Nick Cannon's baby mamas because I’m so fascinated by the dynamics of their harem and Apparently he didn’t visit Lanisha Cole and the baby in his bunny outfit. Is it because she has a new man and refuses to be sister wives with the other baby mamas?" a third user asked.
