Nick Cannon has declared that a higher power will ultimately decide his fate when it comes to fatherhood.

The 42-year-old comedian is staying busy as he recently welcomed his 12th child - a baby girl named Halo Marie - with model Alyssa Scott. The pair also shared a son named Zen, who tragically passed away from brain cancer five months after his birth.

While the Wild n Out host has been on a consistent baby-making streak over the past few years, it looks like he's planning to pump the brakes... if God allows it.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight that was published recently, Cannon revealed: "God decides when we’re done, but I believe I definitely got my hands full."

"And I’m so focused. I’m locked in. But when I’m 85, you never know. I might [have more]," the actor added - indicating that he still may be open to expanding his family in the future.

The Masked Singer host also shared with the publication that there is a misconception surrounding him when it comes to spending time with his large brood.

He set the record straight, saying: "Everybody thinks it's time management. It's energy management. [Because] once we're all aligned, the flow is a lot easier. If there's any kind of low frequencies or dissension in there that’s what messes up the scheduling."

"As long as we're all on the same page and we all got the same goal - to be the best parents we could possibly be - that works and then the scheduling is the scheduling," he added.

Cannon also proudly spoke about the future he is setting up for all his kids, stating: "It's a blessing, man, like, hopefully, because of what I am able to do, my kids can do whatever they want to do, to be able to be in a position that if they want to be a nuclear physicist, I know somebody at an Ivy League school that I could [hit up]."

"If they want to go into the military, if they want to be artists, if they want to be actors, it's a thing where we have the capability. Let's start talking about it now so we can help your dreams come true," he added.

The Love Don't Cost A Thing actor first became a dad in 2011 when he and then-wife Mariah Carey welcomed now-11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. The pair separated in 2014 and eventually divorced in 2016.

Cannon welcomed one-year-old twins Zion and Zillion, and daughter Beautiful Zeppelin, three months, with Abby De La Rosa. He is also a father to sons Golden, six, and Rise, five months, and daughter Powerful, two, with Brittany Bell.

The 'Gigolo' rapper also shares a baby boy named Legendary, seven months, with Bre Tiesi, and a baby girl named Onyx, five months, with LaNisha Cole.

During New Year's celebrations, the 42-year-old appeared on CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live broadcast where he was quizzed on whether he'd be getting a vasectomy after having so many children.

"This is my body, my choice," he jokingly told hosts Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper.
