Nick Cannon welcomed his first child with photographer LaNisha Cole on Wednesday (September 14). The proud dad took to Instagram on Thursday to announce the baby news. Keep scrolling to see their newborn baby girl, Onyx Ice Cole Cannon!
"Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON… Once 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," Cannon captioned a black-and-white photo of himself holding his newborn daughter just moments after Cole gave birth. "I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities."
During the birth announcement, Cannon also took the time to speak against the negative vibes surrounding his unconventional beliefs on monogamy.
“In this moment of celebration and jubilee, I wish to mute any low vibrational frequencies and only rejoice with the Highest Class of Civilization who are truly aligned with our purpose here in this dimension,” he wrote. “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’s the limited amount of love that is the issue. And I promise to love this little girl with all my heart, regardless what anyone says…”
He went on to ask that individuals who were critical of his life choices refrain from sending negativity to Cole and their newborn daughter.
“I’ve given up on attempting to define myself for the world or society but instead I’m doing the work to heal and grow into the infinite Being God ordained me to be. Hopefully I can teach Onyx the same, to not let others shame or ridicule her with their outside opinions, because when they do they are only projecting their own harsh experiences, pain and social programming onto her unblemished beauty. As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children.”
The recording artist continued, “@MissLanishaCole is one of the most guileless, peaceful and nonconfrontational kind souls I’ve ever witnessed, and only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood. Please give her that. She is so loving and pure hearted. As for me, if you are truly concerned during this time of Spiritual Warfare, my inner struggles with self, mental wellness and physical health concerns… Just continue to pray for me and my entire family that God will grant us Peace that surpasses all Understanding.”
Congratulations to the duo on their new addition!
