“I did it. An all-natural, drug-free home birth. It was the most humbling / boundary-breaking experience, but also enlightening and empowering. I can’t thank my team enough for delivering my son safely,” she wrote. “This experience changed me forever and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing and supportive partner.”

She added of Cannon, “Dad showed the f for us. Couldn’t have done it without you. 💙 Can’t believe he’s here 🤗”

The comedian responded in the post’s comments, “You never cease to amaze me!! Full of passion, drive, focus, sparkle and above all love!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️”

“Honored and privileged to experience this magnificent miracle with you! Thank you for the greatest gift that one human being can give to another. For this my love is eternally indebted,” he continued.

In addition to her new baby boy, Cannon shares 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex Mariah Carey. He shares Golden “Sagon”, 5, and Powerful Queen, 19 months, with Brittany Bell, and twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 13 months, with Abby De La Rosa. His son Zen, whom he shares with Alyssa Scott, died in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer.

In June, during an appearance on the lip service podcast, the radio host revealed that he is expecting more children this year. Responding to speculation that he has “three babies on the way,” Cannon first joked, “When you say ‘on the way…’ What account are you on? Let’s just say the stork is on the way. “

When asked if he’s currently expecting three kids, he said, “I don’t know, it could be…”

The actor, who welcomed three children in 2021, went on to suggest he plans to break his personal best, saying, “If you thought there were a lot of kids last year…”

In the May/June issue of men’s healthCannon explained that he is a father of eight children and how he remains involved in the lives of each of his children.

“Contrary to popular belief, I’m probably engaged throughout my children’s day, more often than the average adult can be,” he said.

“If I’m not physically in the same city as my kids, I talk to them before they go to school via FaceTime and stuff. And then when I’m [in the same city, I’m] driving my kids to school, like making sure I pick them up.”
