Nick Cannon Reveals He Is No Longer Celibate

On his talk show, the comedian shared that he stuck with his “celibacy journey” after he was expecting his eighth child but also admitted that he is no longer celibate in 2022.

Nick Cannon wants to let all of his fans know that his “celibacy journey” started after it was confirmed that he was expecting his eighth child but he is now also no longer celibate.

In case you missed it, the actor and comedian shared back in Oct. 2021 that he was going to become celibate and vow to try and “be the best father” and “best businessman” he can be.

On Monday (Jan. 31), Cannon confirmed that he and model Bre Tiesi are expecting a baby on his eponymous talk show. He then set the record straight on his “Rumor Report” segment with Angela Yee that he did not break his celibacy journey but in fact, started it after receiving the news last year that he would be a father again.

“My therapist was one of the [people] who said I should probably be celibate and the reason why is because I had shared that news about Bre being pregnant,” he said on the show. “That was the reason why I started my celibacy journey back then. So for anyone who's thinking, 'Oh he wasn't celibate,' I was!”

Cannon also shared that after learning about the baby news he “didn’t know what to do” and was trying to “get a grasp” on his life.

“I felt like I was out of control and honestly, celibacy did help me through the journey of getting one with myself and being able to deal with this,” he added.

When Yee asked Cannon if he was still celibate he responded that he was not.

“No, I’m not celibate no more,” he admitted. Adding that he “almost made it to the new year” like originally planned to do.

BET previously reported that Cannon and Tiesi hosted a gender reveal party at the end of Jan. 2022 where they learned that they will be welcoming a baby boy.

This will be Cannon’s eighth child and Tiesi first.

The talk show host shares twins Moroccan and Monroe,10, with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. He is also the father of son Golden, 4, daughter Powerful Queen, 10 months with Brittany Bell. And in June 2021, the actor welcomed twins Zion and Zillion 4 months with Abby De La Rosa.

Cannon welcomed his youngest son Zen with Alyssa Scott in June 2021. In a segment on his show in early Dec. 2021, the actor and comedian shared that his 4-month-old son had passed away from a brain tumor.
