In the lengthy caption, Nick gushed: "Introducing ONYX ICE COLE CANNON… Once again today I am in awe of the divine feminine! God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an angel here on earth. I vow to protect, provide, guide and love this child to the best of my abilities.
"So, I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious mothers of my children. @MissLanishaCole is one of the most guileless, peaceful and non confrontational kind souls I've ever witnessed, and only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood."

"In my best Khalid voice ANOTHER ONE...congrats to you and your little one," wrote a third, and a fourth confused fan remarked: "This is all so weird Nick Cannon."

Nick's happy news comes after he took to Instagram in August to share another family milestone. In the post, the presenter announced that he is expecting his 11th child with model Brittany Bell. Alongside a photo of Brittany showcasing her blossoming bump, Nick penned: "Time stopped and this happened…".
Back in July, the comedian welcomed his eighth child, a baby boy named Legendary Love, with 31-year-old model Bre Tiesi. And only weeks beforehand, Nick confirmed he is expecting his tenth child with his former partner Abby De La Rosa, 31.

Nick's five-month-old son Zen, whom he shares with Alyssa Scott, sadly passed away in December 2021 after battling a rare brain tumour. At the time of his death, Nick said: "He was the most loving. We called him Z Chilling. He was always smiling. He had the most beautiful spirit."
