Cannon and Carey divorced in 2016, and he has been busy procreating since then, mostly with models. Cannon now has more children than Elon Musk. He had two children with model Brittany Bell — Golden “Sagon” Cannon, born February 21, 2017, and Powerful Queen Cannon, born December 2020.

Twins must run in Cannon’s gene pool because he had twin sons Zion and Zillion Cannon with DJ Abby De La Rosa. A few days after the twins were born on June 14, 2021, model Alyssa Scott gave birth to another of Cannon’s sons, Zen Cannon, on June 23, 2021. Zen tragically died from a brain tumor about five months later.

Cannon’s eighth child, Legendary Love Cannon, was born in June 2022 to mother Bre Tiesi, who also happens to be a model. When announcing the birth of his child with Tiesi, Cannon expressed his love for all of his children.

"That sounds weird saying 'the next mother' because as everybody knows, I have a lot of children, and I love them all dearly, sincerely,” Newsweek reports Cannon said. “Every single one of my children are just as special as the other. It's never a competition. Parents know what I mean when I talk about just the love that you have for a child, whether it's a child that's here, whether it's a child that's no longer here, whether it's a child that's grown, whether it's a child that's about to be here. It doesn't matter how many you have. It's this unconditional love, this godly-like love that comes over the process."

Cannon has two more babies on the way.

Believe it or not, Cannon isn't done having children. Both Bell and De La Rosa are expecting their third child from the actor. The babies will be Cannon’s 11th and 12th children.
