If you've already started your weekend Netflix binge, you know that Selling Sunset season 6 introduces a new agent to The Oppenheim Group: Breanna Tiesi. Bre doesn't just bring the spice to the LA real estate world, she also has a pretty interesting personal life. She started modeling at 16, loves fitness, and is even the mother to one of Nick Cannon's 12 children.
To be clear, Bre is the mother of just one of those kiddos—her son, Legendary Love. Nick shares his other 11 children with five different women: Mariah Carey, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, LaNisha Cole, and Alyssa Scott. The rapper has said that he has a consensual, non-monogamous relationship with some of the mothers, while he simply co-parents with othres.
"One of my therapists coined what I do as consensual non-monogamy. Because to even pretend like I’m in a monogamous relationship, that would be misleading," The Masked Singer host explained during a YouTube Live interview in July 2022.
But one thing is for sure: Nick, 42, as a proud dad. He really loves being a parent, and has said each of his children were planned. He also takes on a lot of gigs to support his kids, and makes about $100 million a year. So, without further ado, here is everything to know about Nick Cannon's kids and their mothers.
Moroccan and Monroe Cannon, 12 years old.
Nick Cannon's shares his first children with his then-wife and queen of pop/Christmas, Mariah Carey. Moroccan and Monroe Cannon—who the former America's Got Talent host adorably calls "Roc" and "Roe"—were born on April 30, 2011.
The twins actually just turned 12, and Nick posted a sweet tribute to them and their super cool birthday party at Six Flags. The family rented out the entire park for the occasion.
Nick and Mariah's relationship started in 2008, but the pair separated in 2014, and officially divorced in 2016. Ultimately, the couple decided their children would be better off if they went their separate ways. They remain on good terms, though. Earlier this month, Nick said that he and Mariah are "the best of friends now" on The Jason Lee Show.
The rapper is extremely close with his oldest children. He told PEOPLE that his daughter is his "best therapist." And that "she's so in tune and in line and wise beyond her years."
While The Masked Singer host has open relationships with some of his children's mothers, Nick and Mariah are strictly friends, it seems.
Golden Sagon Cannon, 6 years old.
Nick had his third child, Golden, with model Brittany Bell on February 21, 2017. Nick and Brittany met in 2015, and dated on and off until 2017, when they had their son, per The Sun. On top of being a model and a pageant queen, Brittany also completed her master's degree in psychology at Pepperdine University last year. She is currently pursuing a doctorate.
Golden is Nick and Brittany's eldest child (the couple shares three children) and he turned six this year. He also recently got into running track, and it looks like he's really enjoying it!
It seems like Brittany and Nick have an open relationship.
Powerful Queen Cannon, 2 years old.
Powerful Queen, or Pow, is Brittany and Nick's second child. She was born on December 23, 2020. Fun fact: Brittany delivered Pow in a natural water birth, per PEOPLE.
"All I can say is that Nick was my rock through the most intense yet empowering natural water birth," Brittany wrote on Instagram announcing Pow's birth. "It was nothing but POWERFUL ♥️♥️♥️♥️ Merry Christmas!!!! THANK YOU GOD ♥️."
Pow also got to pick her family's Halloween costumes last year (you can bet this fam always goes all out for holidays) and settled on an excellent choice: characters from Disney's Encanto.
Zion Mixolydian & Zillion Heir Cannon, 1 year.
On June 14, 2021, Nick welcomed his second set of twins—Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir—with DJ Abby De La Rosa. Abby met Nick through work—and said that she's close to some of Nick's other kids' mothers.
"We've had so much fun going out to dinners and coffee," she told PEOPLE, of being friends with one of the other moms, although she didn't share a name. "The rest of the woman[sic] I don't know and never met but I wish them all the best as well."
Abby currently works on The Daily Cannon, Nick's radio show. "When I started my new show, I was like, 'The only DJ I want is the woman who [had my] children.' I love her energy," Nick said on The Howard Stern Show in April 2023.
While they are in an open relationship, Abby doesn't consider Nick her life partner. "I was very self-aware and well aware of what I was getting involved in," she said on the Lovers and Friends Podcast in September 2022. "I've always known the type of lifestyle he lived."
Zen Cannon, 5 months.
Nick shares his seventh child, Zen, with model Alyssa Scott. Unfortunately, Zen suffered a brain tumor, and only lived for a few months. He was born on June 21, 2021, and died in December of the same year.
"We had a short time with a true angel," Cannon told PEOPLE. "My heart is shattered. I wish I could have done more, spent more time with him, taken more pictures. I wish I could have hugged him longer."
After Zen's diagnosis, Nick and Alyssa decided to forego chemotherapy to allow their son to peacefully live out his life. (Nick said he'd undergone chemo for lupus, and did not want to subject his newborn to the treatment.)
"We could have had that existence where he would've had to live in the hospital, hooked up to machines, for the rest of the time. From someone who's had to deal with chemotherapy before, I know that pain. To see that happen to a 2-month-old, I didn't want that. I didn't want him to suffer," the rapper told PEOPLE.
Alyssa and Nick continued their relationship.
Legendary Love Cannon, 10 months.
If you are currently streaming Selling Sunset season 6, you're going to want to know more about Nick Cannon's baby with the newest Oppenheim Group real estate agent, Bre Tiesi. Legendary Love, Nick's eighth child, is just under a year old, and totally adorable.
Bre and Nick have dated on-and-off for years, she told E! News last year. They're currently in an open relationship, and Bre seems very happy sharing a child with him.
"I just respect and love who he is so much as a person, that when I thought about, 'Do I want my son to be this person? Look at your characteristics, look at your personality, look at how you treat people...'" She told E! News last year. "That's what is so much more important to me than anything. And he treats me amazing, so that's all I look at."
The Selling Sunset star had a natural water birth, and said Nick was very supportive. "Daddy showed the f up for us.. I couldn't of done it without you. 💙 I can't believe he's here 🤗," she wrote on Instagram.
As for Bre's relationship with the other mothers, she seems to keep to herself.
"I feel like everybody is focused on their own family and their own situation, and we're all very supportive and just respect that. Like, 'That's your family, this is ours and [if] you need anything, we're here," she told E! News.
Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, 8 months.
Onyx Ice Cole Cannon was born on September 14, 2022. Nick shares his ninth child with LaNisha Cole, a model on The Price Is Right. The former America's Got Talent host announced Onyx's birth on Instagram, but never commented on LaNisha's pregnancy.
Nick notably excluded Onyx's name during a recent appearance on the Howard Stern Show, when the host asked him to list all of his children. LaNisha responded by posting a story of her daughter on her Instagram story shortly after the interview went live. "I will do everything I can every single day to make sure she knows how special she is and how much I love and adore her," she wrote, per PEOPLE.
It doesn't seem like Nick and LaNisha have much of a relationship. The model is currently dating producer and filmmaker Brian Paul Kuba, based on her Instagram. LaNisha has also responded several times to criticism she's received for mothering one of Nick's children.
"Calling me baby mama #538 every time I say the sky is blue is uncalled for and it's getting old," the star wrote on Instagram in December 2022. "I get it. My life plays out publicly but there's a lot you don't see."
Rise Messiah Cannon, 8 months.
Rise is Nick's tenth child(and third child with Brittany Bell). Rise was born in September 2022. Both parents shared their own announcements on Instagram.
"Another blessing!" Nick wrote on Instagram. "Probably the most difficult labor and delivery I have ever witnessed! 48 hours of excruciating pain and life risking danger to welcome 10 pounds of Love and joy named RISE MESSIAH CANNON.❤️🙏🏾"
Brittany also shared that Rise was born through an emergency C-section. She also had to balance taking care of her newborn, and two other kiddos, through midterms and finals for her doctorate program. What a strong mama!
Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, 6 months.
Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon is the rapper's third child with Abby De La Rosa. She was born on November 11, 2022. Nick calls his eleventh child "Bizzy B." Adorable.
Abby has posted plenty of sweet updates about Beautiful on Instagram (she really is her mini me!). Nick also welcomed his daughter into the world over social media, and gave a lovely shoutout to her mom.
"Beautiful is privileged to have such a Loving and Spiritually inclined Mother. Your resilience and strength doesn’t go unnoticed. Watching you smile through the world’s madness and my constant craziness is so impressive," the rapper wrote on Instagram.
Halo Scott Cannon, 5 months.
Halo was born on December 14, 2022. Her birth was a particular blessing to her parents after Zen's death in 2021. Although she has since made her account private, Alyssa shared lots of adorable pics of Halo on Instagram when she was first born.
"Zen is in every breath I take," Alyssa wrote in an Instagram post announcing Halo's birth, per PEOPLE. "I know his spirit was with us in the room that morning. I know he is watching down on us. He shows me signs every day. I will hold onto this memory forever."
