Even though his ex-wife is the Queen of Christmas, Nick Cannon embraces his inner Saint Nick at his “favorite time of the year”, Christmas – which is a few weeks away just so you know!

Nick Cannon, a co-host of The Masked Singer, is not worried about providing a wonderful Christmas experience for each of his twelve children, even though he arranges some “over-the-top fun stuff” for them in the run-up to Christmas.

The father of twelve revealed that he will soon be making appearances in a red suit and white beard while speaking backstage at the 2023 Soul Train Awards on Sunday, November 26.

Making his kids happy before Christmas and beyond is the main priority, he told the outlet, adding, “Saint Nick will be in every chimney I could possibly be in.” “You’ll definitely see us doing some fun, outrageous stuff in the next 30 days—it’s all about the kids.”

Large families should take note, as Cannon is expected to have a sizable shopping list this year. With his ex-wife Mariah Carey, the former Wild N’ Out star is father to twins Monroe and Moroccan; twin sons Zion and Zillion; and a daughter named Beautiful Zeppelin with Abby De La Rosa.

He also has siblings Zen—who passed away in December 2021—and Halo Marie with Alyssa Scott; Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi; and Onyx Ice Cole with LaNisha Cole.

In a 2022 interview with Men’s Health Magazine, Nick recalled people’s criticisms of his large family. “Those are questions, to be honest, I don’t really sit down and think about. I’m just trying to live out my purpose and be the best father and provider that I can be,” the actor answered.

Even though in 2022, all Mariah Carey wanted for Christmas was for her ex-husband Nick Cannon to be a doting dad since the comedian is also a father to nine other children at the time, he had to divide up his schedule.

However, for the 43-year-old and his expanding family, dressing up as Santa Claus appears to have become a yearly ritual.

It allows the Masked Singer host to share in the joy of each of his 12 young children’s holiday seasons.
