When the hosts of ‘The Morning Show’ asked him in the podcast about his family and whether he had any plans to expand more, Cannon replied, “Is that a challenge?... I really don’t know – I tried to say I wasn’t having anymore kids after two, after six, after eight… I don’t know, to be honest.”

He also expressed his admiration for the six women of his life, “I have so much respect and admiration for the individual. Everybody has their challenges – but when you really understand this woman has given the greatest sacrifice, and sacrificed her body to bring a child into this world, that’s the best gift any man could ask for. Regardless of what goes on in any scenario, I’m gonna always show love and respect. I’ll never say anything disrespectful or bad about any of the mothers of my children.”
