Nick Cannon confirms he’s expecting his third child with former Phoenix Suns dancer Brittany Bell.
As previously reported, the rumor-mill has been buzzing with claims that the “America’s Got Talent” host is readying to be a daddy, once more. Though Cannon and Bell are no longer an item, the Miss Arizona USA 2010 title holder recently took to Instagram, where she announced she’s got a baby on board.
“Children are a gift from God…” Psalm 127:3,” wrote Bell alongside a beautiful image featuring herself donning a white off-the-shoulder frock accessorized with a yellow lily tucked behind her ear, while cradling her growing baby bump.
Since then, Cannon has sounded off on the gossip, telling Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club that he and Bell are “absolutely” expecting a child together. “I’ve got a baby on the way,” the actor told the radio hosts after calling Bell a “special young lady.” The 36-year-old refused to refer to Bell as his “ex,” clarifying that “ex Mariah [Carey] is my last ‘ex.’ Everybody else is people that I’ve known, loved and cared for.” It appears the pair had an amicable split.
As fans know far too well, the new baby will be joined by Cannon and Carey’s twin children: 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. As previously reported, the duo called it quits in 2014, but it wasn’t until earlier this month that their divorce was finalized.
“It’s always been amicable, 100 percent. Despite everything, their focus has always been the kids,” a source close to Cannon recently told 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.”
Let’s hope they can keep their eye on the ball, aka the children, with the arrival of yet another bundle of love on the way. In the meantime, show Cannon and Bell some congratulatory love in the comment section below.
