“In your fantasy world, whether you’re emotionally engaged or not with the moms, all of your children will know one other. “Will all of your children get together, go on trips or outings together?” Dr. Berman asked Cannon, 42.
“Yes,” he said. “All of them are Cannons.” They’ll most likely attend the same schools and so forth.”
Cannon stated that he has yet to gather all of his children because “as much as that may be a wish of mine, I’ve got to respect that that’s not a wish of everyone’s.”
“I believe we’ll make it. “One of the things I’ve seen from some of my elders in the game is that once the children reach the age where they can make their own decisions, it will happen,” the Wild N’ Out presenter added.
“I’m trying to play by the moms’ rules because they’re currently under their mothers’ jurisdiction.” But once kids can make their own decisions, I hope and pray that we’ll have built a strong enough bond that they’ll want to spend out with me.”
Noting that he’s already had some difficult chats with 12-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, he prefers to keep the lines of communication “very open” between himself and the tweens.
Cannon also disclosed that he is in talks with Brittany Bell, with whom he shares daughter Powerful Queen, 212, and boys Rise Messiah, 9 months, and Golden Sagon, 6, about filling in their oldest about Cannon’s family history.
“I think right now is the time to start having, and this has been a family debate, about when to have the full and honest discussion with the six-year-old because he’s a genius,” he added.
“I think he’s already figured it out.” He is aware of his other siblings. “Even within his own home, he is not an only child,” Cannon added. “He is aware of his elder siblings. He’s been around the younger kids. He’s been around them, but no one speaks about it. It’s not like, ‘This is your brother or sister.'”
“And I believe he’s on the internet at his school.” “He knows his father is known for having a lot of kids,” he says, adding that the second grader has never inquired.
“The time is now before another kid at school says [something],” he urged. “However, I don’t think it’ll be a difficult conversation.”
When asked what he would say to him that is age-appropriate, Cannon said, “You know daddy already has a lot of kids.” And while I value our closeness, I also have other partnerships that have resulted in other children that I adore.”
“And I’d ask him how he feels about it,” the father added. “I had to have that conversation with my 12-year-olds.” It was part ‘yeah,’ part ‘what about me?'”
“You love me the most, right?” Monroe asked Cannon.
He admitted, “You are my firstborn, and you are unique.”
“You find something that is only theirs that you can have.” “I believe every child desires that,” he stated. “However, I believe there will be some feelings they don’t even share with me right away.” ‘I wish I could have had a different situation or upbringing.’ And when such issues arise, we deal with them.”
Cannon’s children include 2-year-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, as well as daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, 7 months, with Abby De La Rosa; son Legendary Love, 11 months, with BreTiesi; and daughter Onyx Ice Cole, 9 months, with LaNisha Cole.
He also has two children with Alyssa Scott: son Zen, who died at the age of 5 months in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer, and daughter Halo Marie, who is 6 months.
