Nick Cannon admitted he agrees with Mariah Carey that he never expected for them to divorce but says things are “the best” they possibly could be.

The “America’s Got Talent” host admitted he agrees with his estranged wife — the mother of his 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe — after she said last week she “never thought” she’d get divorced from someone she had children with, and insisted they are doing their best with the situation.

“I think we have the same sentiments when it comes to that. We’re working it out, and it’s the best it possibly could be,” He told E! News.

Nick recently insisted he is very happy for Carey,  who is now engaged to billionaire businessman James Packer.

“My ex and I are in a great place and are diligently moving things along so we both can continue to be happy. I am happy for her and all her new endeavors, both personal ones and professional ones,” he said.

And although Cannon was recently romantically linked with TLC singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, he has vowed that Carey will “always be the love of his life.”

“It’s one of those things, I’m a hopeless romantic too. Through this learning process, you never say never. To me one thing I know, that will always be the love of my life, always be my family and that’s never going to change,” he said.

“It’s extremely disappointing when you see that people just want to perpetuate negativity when there is no negativity even involved,” he said.

The 35-year-old star won’t confirm whether or not he’s dating Chilli.

“I have no right to speak about [this] out of respect for her and everybody in the situation. You’ve got to ask her. It’s not my place as a man,” he said.
