Nick Cannon introduces his newest baby, a girl whose mother is former The Price Is Right model Lanisha Cole.
The child’s name is Onyx Ice Cole Cannon, her proud dad wrote on Instagram late Wednesday. She is Cannon’s first child with Cole and his ninth overall.
“Once again today I am in awe of the Divine Feminine! God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an angel here on earth,” the Masked Singer host wrote, captioning a black and white selfie of mom, dad and baby hanging together around mom’s hospital bed. “I pledge to do my best to protect, provide for, guide and love this child.”
Then Cannon said he basically wouldn’t listen to any negativity while celebrating his new daughter. Rather, the 41-year-old wrote, “I wish to mute all low vibrational frequencies and rejoice only with the highest class of civilization that is truly connected to our purpose here in this dimension.”
He added: “We all learn so much from these angels we call children. I’m learning that it’s not the limited time we have on this planet, but the limited amount of love that is the problem. And I promise to love this little girl with all my heart no matter what anyone says…
“Hopefully I can teach Onyx the same, not to let others shame or ridicule you with your outward opinions, because when you do, you’re only projecting your own harsh experiences, pain, and social programming onto your flawless beauty.”
He urged people to direct criticism or cynicism at him and not at his children’s mothers — especially Cole. Onyx’s mother “deserves only to revel in the blissful joy of motherhood in this moment. Please give her this,” Cannon wrote. “She’s so loving and pure-hearted.”
When a podcaster asked Cannon in June about rumors that he had three babies on the way, Cannon revealed that he broke his vow to abstain from sex amid grief over the death of his infant son Zen late last year. “Let’s put it this way,” 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. Cannon and Bell are expecting another child, one who just won the title of Baby #9.
Last June, he welcomed another set of twins, Zion and Zillion, with DJ Abby De La Rosa, and son Zen with model Alyssa Scott. His eighth child, son Legendary, was born in July as a model for Bre Tiesi.
Last December he lost Zen to brain cancer. The child was 5 months old.
De La Rosa told the Lovers and Friends podcast this week that she’s enjoying being in a “polyamorous, if you absolutely need a label, relationship” with Cannon, saying that “it doesn’t mean that you low self-esteem or low self-esteem have self-worth.” Rather, the relationship has brought a “liberating vibe” to their lives.
“I also think it’s funny when everyone always comes up and says, ‘He’s playing you, he’s playing you,'” she said. “Technically, we all know about each other. It’s all about how much you want to know, how much you want to know. And I trust the connection I have with Nick.”
Meanwhile, Cannon continued on Instagram, “As for me, if you are really concerned at this time of spiritual warfare, my inner struggles with myself, spiritual wellbeing and physical health issues…just keep praying for me and all my family, that God will grant us peace that surpasses all understanding.”
