Popular American media personality, Nick Cannon has announced the birth of his ninth child.
Cannon shared a video of the mother, Lanisha Cole, and their daughter on his Instagram page on Thursday. He also accompanied the post with a lengthy caption, pledging his love and support for the baby.
“Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON. Again, 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 promise to protect, provide, guide and love this child as best I can. At this time of celebration and jubilee, I wish to mute all low vibrational frequencies and rejoice only with the Highest Class of Civilization that is truly attuned to our purpose here in this dimension.
“We all learn so much from these angels we call children. I am learning that it is not the limited amount of time we have on this planet, but it is the limited amount of love that is the problem. And I promise to love this little girl with all my heart no matter what anyone says.”
The Masked Singer host has come under public criticism for having multiple children with multiple women. Cannon recently welcomed a boy with model, Bre Tiesi, in August. His son with Alyssa Scott sadly passed away at 5 months old in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
Cannon also shares twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 11, with ex Mariah Carey. Model, Britney Bell is mother to son Golden Sagon, 5, and daughter Powerful Queen, 19 months. Bell is also currently expecting their third child together. Nick fathered another twin, Zion and Zillion, with radio personality, Abby De La Rosa in June 2021.
In his post, Cannon explains that he is no longer trying to define himself for society, but is “doing the work of healing and growing into the infinite being” that God has ordained him.
The father of nine begged the public not to criticize his children’s mothers and also asked for prayers as he struggles with “mental well-being and physical health problems”.
“As we all know, I am not easily triggered and have quite hard skin, and have always been an open book, but not everyone in my family has the same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please all criticism and project cynicism on ME and not on the loving and dear Mothers of my children.
“@MissLanishaCole is one of the most guileless, peaceful and non-confrontational kind souls I’ve ever seen, and only deserves to enjoy this moment of blissful joy of motherhood. Please give her that. She is so loving and pure of heart.
“As for me, if you are really concerned in this time of Spiritual Warfare, my inner struggle with myself, mental well-being and physical health problems. Just keep praying for me and all my family that God will grant us peace that surpasses all understanding,” he said.
