Nick Cannon says that he is taking a break from baby-making per his therapist’s advice.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cannon spoke about the big family he’s created over the years. Cannon, 40, has been the topic of conversation recently, as he continues to announce the birth of a new child with a new woman. While people online have condemned his decisions, Cannon has openly said that none of his children were “accidents.”
However, he’s changing his tune and taking a break from procreating and may take up celibacy after receiving some advice from his therapist. “I’m not sitting out here planning it. My therapist says I should be celibate,” said Cannon. “Okay, give me a break bus. I’m [gonna] take a break from having kids.”
He went on: “I come from a big family, I have several siblings, [and] being raised in an unorthodox family by my grandparents at times, I’ve experienced such a wide range of upbringing that I have such a love and passion for kids and family. I want a big family too. The Lord has blessed me with what I asked. Ask and you shall receive.”
He added that at this time, he wants to be “transparent” and refocus his attention on others.
“[I’ve] never been a person that’s shied away from talking about my life. But I want to refocus it on others. I’m gonna be talking for an hour each and every day, hopefully, people get to know me in a very intimate way. If I’m in the headlines the night before, I’m definitely talking about it the next morning,” said Cannon.
