Nick Cannon’s brother, Gabriel Cannon, has hilariously revealed that he struggles so much to remember all 12 of the children in his sibling’s ever-growing brood that he has to turn to Google for help.
TV host Nick, 42, has had his personal life splashed across headlines the world over in recent years after welcoming ten children with five different women – all in the space of five years, having already fathered two kids with his ex-wife Mariah Carey.
And like the rest of the world, Gabriel – who was just crowned the winner of Claim to Fame season two – revealed that he simply cannot keep up with his brother’s ever-expanding brood and in in fact still is yet to meet them all.
‘I haven’t met them, but did y’all see what happened with him?’ the 33-year-old told Entertainment Weekly, before seemingly throwing shade at his brother’s choice of very unique names.
‘He messed up [naming] all his kids, so I’m not even gonna attempt. I’m just uncle. It’s easy,’ he continued.

As for whether he’s had to create a note on his phone to remember all the names, Gabriel quipped: ‘That or Google. They’re all on the internet.’
Nick has children with the pop superstar Mariah Carey, DJ Abby De La Rosa, and four models: Alyssa Scott, Brittany Bell, Bre Tiesi, and Lanisha Cole.
He shares 12-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Carey, and a six-year-old son Golden, two-year-old daughter Powerful Queen, and 11-month old son Rise Messiah with Bell.
He is also a father to two-year-old twins Zion and Zillion and nine-month-old daughter Beautiful Zeppelin with De La Rosa, as well as one-year-old son Legendary Love with Tiesi.
Additionally, he shares 11-month-old daughter Onyx Ice with Cole and eight-month-old daughter Halo Marie with Scott.
Cannon and Scott’s five-month-old son, Zen, died in December 2021 from a brain tumor.
Back in June, Nick dished about his modern family and revealed he is open to adding more children to his brood of 12 while appearing on a podcast.
The 42-year-old Wild ‘N Out host spoke with Dr. Laura Berman on her The Language of Love podcast, where he discussed how having a dozen kids — whom he shares with six different women — was a calling from God.

After Berman stated that several of the women were on ‘full on birth control and gotten pregnant’ and joked that he has ‘magic sperm’ Nick replied, ‘I lend that type of stuff to God. Those are miracles.’
Cannon and Berman also joked about his story resembling that of Abraham in the Bible, with Cannon adding, ‘I’ve never heard that clarity, but I’ve heard “Yo, you’re going to be a father of many. You’re a great influence, your lineage, your offspring are going to do great things.”‘
The entertainer also shared he’s not opposed to having even more children, telling Berman, ‘The more the merrier!’
At one point Berman asked, ‘Did God tell you to have all these babies?’
Canon said that he’s gotten in trouble for saying that before and shared that when people will ask him if he’s done having children, his response is, ‘Only God can let me know when I’m done.’
‘As much as I was open to every single child that I have, I can’t say the majority of them were planned,’ he went on.

‘If you would have told me in 2012 when I was still married and just diagnosed with Lupus that 10 years from now… that I would have 12 children, I would be like f**k out of here!’
He added, ‘There’s no way in the world that I would ever plan that.’
Elsewhere, Monday night saw Gabriel win Claim To Fame after keeping his celebrity connection secret for the whole season of the ABC show.
He walked away with the $100,000 prize during the season two finale after being in the final two with Monay.
‘Enjoy that new claim to fame,’ Nick said in a video message. ‘Loan me some money.’
