American all-around entertainer Nick Cannon has been busy sowing his seeds everywhere he can find fertile ground, making him a proud father to seven children and a baby daddy to four women including ex-wife Mariah Carey.
Nick Cannon was a guest on The Breakfast Club and was questioned about his indiscriminate breeding. He explained that monogamy is a Eurocentric concept imposed on us, something he clearly does not subscribe to.
“That’s a Eurocentric concept … the idea that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life… The idea that a man should have one woman… We shouldn’t have anything. I have no ownership over this person”, he explained.
One would think fathering four children in the span of a year would be burdensome for the “Wild N Out” host but he says he is very present in all of his children’s lives.
“Anybody who knows me … I’m at every basketball game, every martial arts practice, and people don’t understand how I do it, but my children are my priority. It’s all about being present.”
“The beauty of fatherhood, and when you really talk about like the essence of living as a father to me, I have learnt so much just from my children and it is so amazing. And I really just love being around my kids, and there’s just that youthful energy. It feels like you get to re-live every time.
” And I think it is because I have been through so much in my life physically, mentally and spiritually. Like the best place that I find is the time I spend with my kids and their energy, and to get as much of that as possible.”
According to Nick Cannon, he does not go around looking for women to impregnate. “Those women, and all women, are the ones that open themselves up and say, ‘I would like to allow this man into my world and I will birth this child…It ain’t my decision. I’m just following suit.”
