Nick Cannon says he’s taking a break from sex.
After welcoming four children in less than a year, the dad of seven revealed that he’s practicing celibacy.
“I’m celibate right now,” The Masked Singer host told DJ EFN and N.O.R.E. during an interview on Revolt’s Drink Champs that aired Friday. “I’m going to see if I could make it to 2022.
“I’m trying to chill out,” he said. “I’m kind of stepping away, getting focused, going within, getting my celibacy on. I have enough children, enough frolicking, I’m good right now.”
When the hosts joked that Cannon isn’t really celibate, he responded, “Nah, y’all said I ain’t really. I’m saying I’m going in.”
Last month, the actor told TMZ that he’s open to having more children. When asked if he wants to continue expanding his family, he said, “God willing. If God sees it that way, then that’s what I’m going to keep doing.”
Cannon welcomed his eldest children, twins Monroe and Moroccan, with ex-wife Mariah Carey in 2011. He shares 3-year-old son Golden “Sagon” with Brittany Belland and the pair welcomed a daughter, named Powerful Queen, in December. Cannon became dad to another set of twins on June 17, when Abby de la Rosa gave birth to boys Zion and Zillion. One week later, Alyssa Scott birthed his youngest child, son Zen.
