Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon may be exes, but that won’t stop them from spending time together as a family this holiday season! And although Nick’s about to become a father with another woman, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned from Nick’s dad James Cannon, that Mariah is completely ‘cool’ with the baby news!
Nick Cannon, 36, is officially going to be a dad again! Revealing in an explosive interview on Nov. 17 that he’s expecting a baby with ex-girlfriend and former Miss Arizona USA, Brittany Bell, the star seems to have a lot on his plate lately. But luckily Mariah Carey, 46, his ex-wife, and mother of his two kids Monroe Cannon and Moroccan, 5, totally understands! And according to Nick’s own father, James Cannon, she’s apparently fine with the shocking baby news. In fact, their family-of-four even plan on spending Thanksgiving together — aw!
“Nick will be seeing Mariah and their kids over Thanksgiving and the holiday season,” James revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I’m trying to get my family all together as well. I’m happy for my son, a new child is always a blessing.” And while we certainly cannot argue with that, the news did come as quite a shock — especially considering how close Nick and Mariah remain despite their split in 2014.
Apparently though, there is no bad blood between the two of them, and they want to keep it that way for the sake of their twins. “It’s all good,” James added. “Nick wants a boy and I would like a grandson. Nick decided to go public and there are no bad feelings between him and Mariah, everything is ‘cool.’ Everyone is trying to move on with love and positivity.”
Sounds like the holiday spirit is definitely alive and well in this fam! Nick’s ex is reportedly already six months along in her pregnancy, and Nick confirmed that the child is his during a radio interview with The Breakfast Club. “Who said it wasn’t mine?” the America’s Got Talent host joked when addressing Brittany’s baby bump. “I got a baby on the way.” So exciting!
