Cannon made the announcement on Instagram with a video showing Brittany Bell’s pregnancy. In the caption, Cannon said: “Another Blessing!!! As my journey on this planet becomes more remarkable and unfathomable, all I can do is thank God and continue to ask the Most High to order my steps.”
Cannon’s oldest children are twins, 11-year-old Monroe and Moroccan, who were born to mother Mariah Carey in 2011. Cannon also has twin sons Zion and Zillion with DJ Abby De La Rosa, who is pregnant with Cannon’s 11th child.
Cannon’s son, Zen died on Dec. 5 at just 5 months old after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
When asked about Cannon as a parent, De La Rosa told CNN that while Cannon is “very spread thin,” he “does his best to be a present co-parent, a present parent, a present father.”
