Eddie Murphy Supports Nick Cannon With his 12 Kids
The Golden Globe Awards held its yearly ceremony on January 10, 2023 at Beverly Hills, California. The actor put on the spotlight on that day was Eddie Murphy, who received the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
While the actor received the award, he gave a speech about the honoree and the many achievements of his long career. At one point during his speech, Murphy mentioned that one of the hardest jobs is being a father to your kids. This prompted stand-up comedian, and actor Tracey Morgan to poke fun at Murphy’s ten children.
When asked what he thought about Nick Cannon having 12 children, Murphy just gave an enthusiastic thumb up. Signaling that he approved of him having a big family, and has no plans to stop adding more members to support.
Cannon and Alyssa Scott had their most recent kid, a baby girl called Halo Marie, in December 2022. The couple also had a son called Zen in April 2021, but he died five months later from brain cancer. Aside from Alyssa Scott, Cannon has children with Bre Tiesi, Lanisha Cole, and Brittany Bell, among others.
Why Eddie Murphy Approves of Cannon Having 12 Kids
Murphy is someone who shares almost the same number of kids as Cannon. As someone older than the host, he understands the hardships of having multiple kids from different women. Murphy also recently became a grandfather as his son Miles welcomed his first daughter.
As to why he approves of Cannon’s 12 children, Murphy stated that he’s at a point in his life where he realizes that there’s no other blessing than having a child. He also stated that there’s no sweeter blessing in life than seeing your grandchild for the first time.
Meanwhile, Cannon may not have any plans as to how far he wants to take in expanding his brood, but expressed that fatherhood is his number one priority. Maybe Murphy’s sign of approval may give Cannon his firm decision after remaining undecided for a while about growing his family.
