The Wild ‘n Out star replied: ‘Why do people question it? That’s a eurocentric concept when you think about the ideas… that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life.

‘The idea that a man should have one woman…we shouldn’t have anything. I have no ownership over this person. It’s about what exchange we can create together. So, I’ve never really subscribed to that mentality. I understand the institution of marriage but if we go back to what that’s about, that was to classify property. 

‘One father gave another man his daughter for land. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers. We created a beautiful entity.’

The Masked Singer host went more in-depth in to his feelings about monogamy.

Cannon explained: ‘I don’t subscribe to that. Those women, all women, are the ones that open themselves up and say ‘I would like to allow this man in my world. And I will birth this child. It ain’t my decision. I’m following suit.

‘Every woman that I deal with or dealt with, they know how I feel.’

He went on to say that every romantic relationship is different and he isn’t actively just looking for women to father a child with.

‘Nah. It’s usually scenarios. When you look at a family structure, the woman is always the one who leads and makes decisions.’

Last month, Nick  used the recent arrival of his youngest child, son Zen, as an excuse to show off his expansive family on social media as he shared sweet photos of five of his seven children to Instagram

Nick looked like a proud father as he held his seven-month-old daughter Powerful Queen Cannon in a carrier on his chest.

He wore a neon green hoodie and a ‘South East’ baseball cap as he gazed down into her eyes, while she looked up and gave him a cute smile in return. 

The little tot had her head covered up with a pale pink bow.

Nick welcomed the little girl with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell in December of last year.

Another snap highlighted ‘The Gang!!!’ which was composed of his 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom he shares with his ex-wife Mariah Carey, as well as Powerful and his four-year-old son Golden, whom he also shares with Bell.

Nick and Monroe sat on the bed as he introduced his older daughter to her younger sister, while Moroccan and Golden stood on the other side of the bed.

Golden looked antsy and seemed to be trying to climb up the headboard.

The Drumline star followed it up with another lovely photo of Monroe closeup as she gently touched Powerful’s forehead while the little girl clasped her hand.

Nick gave a closeup view of his youngest boy, Zen, who was born on June 23 to his presumed current girlfriend Alyssa Scott.

‘Introducing,’ he captioned a closeup photo of the baby boy snoozing peacefully with his arms resting behind his head.

‘Zen Scott Cannon,’ Nick wrote, joking that his son was nicknamed ‘Z Chillin.’

Seemingly missing from Nick’s posts were photo of his twins Zillion Heir and Zion Mixolydian, who didn’t seem to be part of the gathering.

But last week, the Wild ‘N Out host post for a lovely photo session with the baby boys and their mother Abby De La Rosa, whose relationship to Nick is unclear. 

While spending time with his children, Nick visited a park. He beamed ear-to-ear while holding powerful mussing Golden’s hair as someone flew a kite in the background.

His mother Beth Gardner got a chance to meet up with most of her grandchildren, and she took a ride on a swing set with her sun and Powerful.

‘Momma about to turn 80 and she still out here playing on swings!’ Nick captioned the photo. ‘True happiness!!’ 

Another photo seemingly taken at another time showed Nick trying to pass on music to Powerful as he helped her hammer on a piano.

He and Golden bonded in another playful snap stood close to each other so that they could fit inside of a giant soap bubble.

Despite fathering four children with three mothers in the past six months, Nick insisted that none of the pregnancies were accidents while on his Power 106 radio show in July. 

‘I don’t have no accident,’ he said, adding, ‘there’s a lot of people that I could’ve gotten pregnant that I didn’t.’

He continued: ‘The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant.’

Earlier in the broadcast, the former America’s Got Talent host joked to his cohost that he was ‘like a seahorse out here. That’s just the way I’m procreating.’
