Nick Cannon and Girlfriend Brie Tiesi Are Expecting Their First Child Together

Nick Cannon is expecting his eighth child! On Jan. 31, the 41-year-old TV host confirmed on his talk show that he and his girlfriend, Brie Tisei, are expecting their first baby together. Over the weekend, Cannon was seen cradling Tiesi's baby bump at what appeared to be a gender reveal party in Malibu, California. Cannon confirmed that they're expecting a boy. "I have a lot of children and I love them all dearly sincerely and every single one of my children are just as special as the other . . . it's never a competition," he said on the show. The pregnancy news comes nearly two months after Cannon announced that his five-month-old son, Zen, died from brain cancer.

Shortly after announcing the baby news, Cannon opened up about simultaneously dealing with the loss of his youngest son and learning he was expecting another boy. "This whole process is extremely difficult for me because I've known about Brie's pregnancy for a while now, even before my youngest son, Zen, passed in December," he said. "And so even going through all that, this was always in the back of my mind like, 'When is the right time? How do I share this?' . . . it kept me up at night."

Cannon ended the segment on a positive note, saying: "At the end of the day, when a life comes into this world, it's a celebration and I'm excited, I'm happy, and y'all gonna go with me on this entire journey." Congrats to the happy couple and watch Cannon confirm the exciting news below!
