  • Nick Cannon announced Friday that he'd welcomed his tenth child, Rise Messiah Cannon, on September 23.
  • Rise Messiah is Cannon's third child with model Brittany Bell.

Nick Cannon announced the birth of his tenth child, his third with model Brittany Bell, on Friday.

The actor and producer shared the news about their new addition on his Instagram story. "WELCOME RISE MESSIAH CANNON 9/23/2022," he wrote.

Cannon and Bell welcomed a son, Golden "Sagon" Cannon, in February 2017. Their daughter, Powerful Queen Cannon, was born in December 2020.

On Friday, Cannon also posted a video of the "blessingway" he and Bell hosted to celebrate their impending arrival on his Instagram feed. He revealed that she introduced him to the concept of the event where "powerful prayer warriors" speak to God on behalf of the family.

According to The Birth Hour, a "blessingway" is a celebration of pregnancy and motherhood that is distinct from a baby shower because it focuses more on the mother than the baby.


"Another Blessing!!! As my journey on this planet becomes more and more remarkable and unfathomable, all I can do is thank God," he wrote in the caption.

In addition to his three kids with Bell, Cannon also has six other living children with four other women. He shares 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with his ex-wife Mariah Carey; 1-year-old twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with DJ Abby De La Rosa; a 6-week-old son, Legendary Love, with "Selling Sunset" star Bre Tiesi; and Onyx Ice Cole Cannon with Lanisha Cole, who was born on September 14.

Cannon also had a son, Zen, with Alyssa Scott. Zen died in 2021 from brain cancer at the age of five months, and the child's death inspired Cannon to start a pediatric healthcare foundation.

In his Friday Instagram post, Cannon went on to acknowledge critics of his blended family who might deem their set-up unfathomable.

"He has given me stewardship and dominion over a family dynamic that to some is unimaginable. But more importantly, he has blessed me with loving individuals to guide me with care through this purposeful life," he continued.


Cannon praised Bell's contribution to his life, calling her :the rock and foundation of my Fatherhood journey."

"She has taught me so much about parenting, psychology, spirituality, love and just life in general," he wrote of Bell.
