Born in San Diego, California, on October 8th, 1980, Nick Cannon has become a widely successful actor, rapper, and television presenter over his twenty-year career in Hollywood. Nick Cannon, who got his start in the late 1990s on the hit Nickelodeon sketch comedy program All That, first took on the world of feature films, taking the lead role in movies such as Drumline, Love Don’t Cost a Thing, and Underclassmen.
However, Nick would later go on to explore the music realm, carving out a nice little rap career in the early 2000s and producing hit songs such as “Gigolo”, a true 2000 banger that we all cranked up in our high school parking lot if you were lucky enough to experience that era. That being said, we all know where Nick Cannon truly found his footing, and that was in your living room on your parents’ favorite weekday shows.
After a few small television appearances in comedy sketch shows, like The Chappelle Show, Nick Cannon eventually launched his own improv series on MTV, called Wild’n Out, which ran in the late 2000s and was eventually revived in the 2010s. Cannon also had nearly a ten-year stint hosting the popular competition series America’s Got Talent, and is currently hosting the mystery celebrity singing competition, The Masked Singer.
During its time, the union between Nick Cannon and singer Mariah Carey created one of Hollywood’s most powerhouse couples, as the pair tied the knot in 2008 and lasted for nearly six years before filing for divorce in 2014, finalizing their separation by 2016. In 2011, Carey gave birth to fraternal twins Monroe & Moroccan Scott, making Cannon a very proud father and potentially a very rich man so long as he avoided the prenup.
In 2017, Nick Cannon became a father once more, serving as the dad to baby Golden “Sagon”, whose mother was famous model Brittany Bell. In 2020, the pair had yet another child, daughter Powerful Queen Cannon. Now, with officially a new set of babies, Cannon is the proud father of six different children. However, babies are like a well-crafted dessert . . . there’s always room for more!
Cannon would go on to learn that he’d be a father once more with a fourth woman. Lucky seven! But how much is Nick Cannon worth?
