Nick Cannon, the former host of America’s Got Talent, has amassed a lot of fame over the course of his career. Even though he has made a name for himself, there are other factors at play that bring him into the limelight. He is renowned for having a large family, specifically his 12 children. 

Six different women were the mothers of Cannon’s whopping twelve children. The Masked Singer host has been expanding his family for a large portion of the last few years. Well, only five of those twelve children were actually born in 2022. The rapid growth actually began in 2017 when he had a child with the baby’s mom, Brittany Bell. Since then, it appears that Cannon has refused to take any action to prevent pregnancy.

But is it just that he dislikes the thought of taking any safety measures or something else?

Nick Cannon Hates Condom Use

Nick Cannon was still married to singer Mariah Carey when he received the autoimmune disease lupus diagnosis. He gained a reputation as a ‘baby machine’ shortly after divorcing her in 2014. Many fans believed that these kids were born accidentally, but it later turned out that Cannon has a strong aversion to using condoms.

But why?

His autoimmune disease, for which he was given a diagnosis in 2012, is the primary cause of his avoidance of condoms. Cannon confessed to Howard Stern in an interview:

“I’m probably gonna die sooner than most people. So let’s f**k all night! So why wear condoms? I might not be here tomorrow.”

Although it is a bold statement, he clarified that he does not simply gamble by not wearing a condom on his radio show, The Daily Cannon, in July 2021.  

I’m having these kids on purpose. I don’t have no accident.”

Cannon chooses his children’s mothers very carefully and adheres to consensual non-monogamy. He had a happy six-year marriage to American singer-songwriter, Mariah Carey. They got divorced in 2016 after getting married in 2008.

However, after being diagnosed with lupus and divorcing Carey, Cannon realized how short life is and that he should make the most of it. By this, he meant having a lot more kids.
