Congratulations are in order! After weeks of speculation, Nick Cannon finally confirmed he is, in fact, expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.
Cannon confirmed the happy news Thursday morning (Nov. 16, 2016), during an interview on the NYC radio show The Breakfast Club. Cannon attempted to avoid confirming the news when first asked, initially denying Bell was his ex, saying he doesn’t consider anyone after Mariah Carey an ex, but happily confirmed the news later in the interview.
“Who said it wasn’t mine?” Cannon said when asked about Bell’s bundle of joy. “I’ve got a baby on the way … absolutely … God said be fruitful and multiply,” he said, jokingly adding: “I’m doing the Lord’s work … everybody get a baby! I’m passing them out.”
Cannon and Bell have been on and off since he split from Carey in 2014 but did their best to keep their relationship out of the public eye. Bell, who was crowned Miss USA in 2010, recently celebrated her baby shower with her Miss USA/Miss Universe pageant friends.
