“I already went and got my vasectomy consultation,” the 41-year-old said during the Tuesday, May 17, episode of E! News’ Daily Pop. “I ain’t looking to populate the Earth completely, but I’m definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have.”

Cannon is currently expecting baby No. 8. His first child with a pregnant model Bre Tiesi. “I don’t know if I would’ve designed it this way,” the Drumline star said of his unconventional brood. “But it’s one of those things when you’re blessed with the gifts of children — and as we all know, I’ve been through so much — I find solace. I find peace in my children and I find purpose.”

However, he still tries to be a parent when he can.

“We was doing little league with my 5-year-old this weekend,” Cannon gushed. “We got swim practice this week. Every morning, I take my children to school. I FaceTime. Two weeks ago [Moroccan and Monroe]They had their birthday party. We shut down Six Flags.”

When it comes to his kids following in his footsteps, the entertainer teased that there are “definitely” a few future stars in the family. “They gonna be some talented babies,” he added.

But he admitted in January that he started a celibacy path after Tiesi, aged 30, became pregnant. “I felt like my life was out of control. And honestly, the celibacy did help me through the journey of getting one with myself and dealing with this,” he said on The Nick Cannon ShowAt the time.

Last month, the mom of the future gave birth Use Weekly an exclusive glimpse inside her relationship with Cannon, adding that she doesn’t “really care” about outsiders’ opinions.

“I have a beautiful relationship,” she told Us. “We’re very open, we’re very honest, we’re very supportive. All of my needs are met, and I’m very happy in our situation.”

Tiesi explained that she wasn’t “nervous” to tell the actor she was expecting. “Nick and I have been talking about going down this road for a long time,” she said. “And when we were finally ready, we were trying. There was no, ‘Oops, I got pregnant.’”
