Nick Cannon Says He Will 'Take a Break from Having Kids,' Therapist Suggested He 'Should Be Celibate'
Nick Cannon says he is "blessed" to have a big family.
The actor, who will be launching his talk show of the same name for the day, spoke to Entertainment Tonight about recently welcoming new babies into his family last year, and mentioned that his therapist had suggested living celibacy in the face of the news.
“I'm not sitting out here planning it. My therapist says I should be celibate, "Cannon, 40, told the point of sale, and jokingly added," Okay, give me a break bus. I'm going to take a break from having children. "
Cannon continued, “I come from a large family, I have several siblings, [and] since I was sometimes raised in an unorthodox family by my grandparents, I have had such a broad upbringing that I have such love and passion for Children and family. I also want a big family. The Lord has blessed me with what I asked. Ask and you will be received. "
The star added that he wants to be "transparent" about his personal life on his syndicated talk show: "[I've] never been a person to shy away from talking about my life, but I want to focus it on others. I "I'm going to talk for an hour every day, hopefully people get to know me in a very intimate way. If I'm in the headlines the night before, I'll definitely talk about it the next morning. "

Cannon welcomed twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir to Abby De La Rosa on June 14th. His son Zen, whom he shares with model Alyssa Scott, was born nine days after Zion and Zillion.
Additionally, last December, Cannon welcomed daughter Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell, with whom he also shares 4-year-old son Golden. Cannon is also the father of 10-year-old twins (son Moroccan and daughter Monroe) with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
On his Los Angeles radio show Power 106 in July, Cannon said he "had these kids on purpose" after City Girls rapper JT advised him to "wrap it up," a nod to using a condom for sex.
"I have no accident," he said at the time. "Trust me, there are many people I could have gotten pregnant with that I didn't ... those who got pregnant are the ones who should get pregnant."
