Nick Cannon is going to be a father again. Acknowledging that speculation broke out over the weekend when photos surfaced of him and Bre Tiesi at what appeared to be the model's baby shower, Nick formally confirmed this morning they're expecting a child.
The comedian and television presenter shared the news while delivering the opening segment of his eponymous daytime talk series, The Nick Cannon Show. He began by reading a handful of tweets where people joked about his large family before verifying what recent reports suggested.
Nick and Bre are due to welcome a son some time later this year, he said, noting that he's in a "great space" as they prepare for the baby's arrival. The little one is Bre's first and Nick's eighth child.
Questions about another possible addition to Nick's family started to circulate on Saturday, following an initial article published by TMZ that included photos of him and Bre at a "gender reveal" celebration in Malibu.
Nick spoke extensively about fatherhood during episodes of The Nick Cannon Show that aired near the end of last year. His 5-month-old son, Zen, whose mother is Alyssa Scott, died in December after battling a form of brain cancer.
Congratulations to Nick and Bre. We're wishing them all the best.
