Nick Cannon has an annual child support bill that’s absolutely eye-watering.
Considering the TV host is a father to 11 children from six different women – with baby number 12’s arrival imminent any day – it’s no wonder he’s spending north of $US3 million (approx. $4.4 million) per year supporting his brood.
“I don’t plan to ever have to participate in the governmental system of child support,” Cannon, 42, revealed earlier this week to The Neighbourhood Talk.
Here’s everything you need to know about Nick Cannon’s kids – seven sons and four daughters – and their mothers.

Zen, however, died just five months later on December 5, 2021from a rare brain tumour.
”Over the weekend I lost my youngest son to a condition called hydrocephalus that was pretty much a malignant, invasive midline brain tumor, brain cancer,” Cannon said at the time to his talk-show audience. “It’s tough.”

Cannon shared that he spent the weekend with his son in California and said “not only did we get to see the sun rise, we got to see the sun set.”
“I didn’t know how I was going to handle today,” Cannon told his audience. “But I wanted to grieve with my family.”
Cannon also praised Scott for her strengthsaying she ”was just the strongest woman I’ve ever seen. Never had an argument, never was angry.”
“Was emotional when she needed to be, but always the best mum, and continues to be the best mum,” he said.
Cannon and Scott first took Zen to a doctor when he was two months old, after they noticed he had an abnormally large head.
”He had this real interesting breathing and by the time he was two months old I noticed … he had this nice-sized head, I called it a Cannon head,” Cannon explained.
“We didn’t think anything of it, he had a normal Cannon head. But I wanted to take him to the doctor to get the breathing and the sinus thing checked out. We thought it would be a routine process.”
Zen was later diagnosed with a condition called hydrocephalus, which is an invasive midline brain tumour.
