Nick Cannon has officially moved on from his ex-wife Mariah Carey and now has a baby on the way with actress Brittany Bell. While many have expressed their opinions on the pregnancy, the America's Got Talent host made one thing clear about his upcoming new addition.
During an interview with Power 106, Nick wanted everyone to know that by no means is his baby with Brittany a "mistake."
"Never an 'oops baby,'" he said. "I'm so calculated with my moves. I've always wanted five kids. Just because my marriage was over didn't mean I couldn't continue my family."
He even went on to say that he consciously sought to have a child with Brittany because of their history together.
"I wanted to make sure it was someone who was solid, spiritual and had the same views," he said. "She's been in my life. Our families grew up in the same projects together in San Diego. So there's a lot of substance there."
In terms of how he revealed the news of his third baby to Mimi, he said he didn't have to do much because she actually initiated the conversation.
"She came at me first about it, so it was actually easier," he said. "I don't know how she heard about it, but she called me, and she was funny with it. She was like, 'Mhmmm, I heard about you out here in these streets.'"
