Nick Cannon isn’t the only one who knows a thing or two about making babies. And he’s okay with that. The ‘Wild ‘N Out’ star took to social media to express his support for Elon Musk, who recently increased his own child count.
On Wednesday, Insider reported that the Tesla boss quietly welcomed twins with Neuralink manager Shivon Zilis in November 2021. With the twins now in tow, Musk has nine children in total.
A day after the report, Musk cheekily tweeted that he was “doing his best to help the underpopulation crisis.”
“A collapsing birth rate is by far the greatest threat facing civilization,” Musk wrote.
Cannon, who fathered seven children, lost one to brain cancer and is expecting at least one more child soon, had some words of reassurance for the tech billionaire.
“Right there, my brother,” Cannon tweeted. He followed his words with a fist emoji and apparently showed solidarity.
In June, the rapper said he broke his vow of abstinence and addressed rumors that he had “three babies on the way.” While he neither confirms nor denies the number of his future children, he said, “The stork is on its way.”
Cannon shares twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-wife Mariah Carey, as well as son Golden and daughter Powerful Queen with model Brittany Bell.
Last June, he welcomed another set of twins, Zion and Zillion, with DJ Abby De La Rosa, as well as a son, Zen, with model Alyssa Scott. Zen died of brain cancer last December. Cannon announced in January that he was expecting a boy with model Bre Tiesi.
Musk, on the other hand, shares children Exa Dark Sideræl and X Æ A-Xii with singer Grimes. He shares twins and triplets with his first wife, writer Justine Musk.
As if his support for large families wasn’t obvious enough, Musk encouraged his followers to procreate in a similar bond.
“I hope you have big families and congratulations to those who already do!” he tweeted.
