Nick Cannon, father of 12, announced on March 7 that he is expecting again. This time it’s a game show…sort of.
In a post shared on Instagram, Cannon, 42, revealed he would be starring in “Who’s Having My Baby,” hosted by comedian Kevin Hart.
“You’re going to have some contestants who want your baby,” Hart says in the brief promo, suggesting the show will focus on women interested in procreating with Cannon.
But according to a release from E! is the “competition” actually part of an upcoming celebrity prank show, “Celebrity Prank Wars,” premiering Thursday, April 6 at 10 p.m. ET.
“Celebrities are always trying to up the ante as each prank is more elaborate than the next — each with unexpected twists, embarrassing situations and shocking revelations,” the release said, adding that the show will host both Cannon and Hart.
Contributors including: Anthony Anderson, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Lil Duval, Big E, Fantasia, Tiffany Haddish, Taraji P. Henson, Lil Jon, Kofi Kingston, Ludacris, Joel McHale, Killer Mike, Chance the Rapper, T-Pain , Robin Thicke, T.I. and Xavier Woods.
The “Wild ‘n Out” host teased fans on social media on March 6 with a cryptic Instagram story featuring a baby bottle emoji.
“Expect some big news tomorrow,” Cannon wrote, along with a curious eyes emoji and a baby bottle emoji, prompting fans to speculate about an announcement of baby No. 13.
And on March 7, he shared what looked like a teaser for a game show called “Who’s Having My Baby?” hosted by Kevin Hart.
Cannon is notoriously the father of 12 children, whom he shares with six women, including twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 11, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; Golden Sagon, 6, Powerful Queen, 2, and Rise Messiah, 5 months, with model and former Miss Arizona USA Brittany Bell; Onyx Ice Cole, 5 months, with LaNisha Cole; twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 1, and Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, 3 months, with DJ Abby De La Rosa; Zen, who died of brain cancer in December 2021, and Halo Marie, 2 months, with Alyssa Scott; and Legendary Love, 7 months, with model Bre Tiesi.
In 2021, Hart gave Cannon a condom machine as part of their “prank wars” saga.
“Looks like someone just sent me an early Valentine’s Day gift!! Vending machine full of Magnums,” Cannon captioned while posing next to the gift at the time.
In February, Cannon opened up about parenthood in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
When asked if he was done having children, he replied: “Yes, yes, yes,” before saying it wasn’t up to him.
“God will decide when we’re done, but I definitely think I’ve got my hands full and I’m so focused. I’m locked in. But when I’m 85, you never know. I can do that,” he said .
