Nick Cannon is a father once again! Abby De La Rosa gave birth to their twin sons, named Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir. According to De La Rosa’s Instagram, they were born on Monday, June 14.

De La Rosa posted a video holding the babies, although past photos with Cannon announcing the pregnancy have been deleted. The Masked Singer host, meanwhile, hasn’t mentioned the twins’ birth at all on his own social media.

Nick Cannon, Abby De La Rosa Welcome Twins

In a video posted on De La Rosa’s Instagram account, the new mom holds the twin boys in her arms while resting in a hospital bed. In the caption, she wrote, “Welcome to the world.” De La Rosa also confirmed that the boys’ last name is Cannon.


In an Instagram story, De La Rosa shared a photo of the babies’ hands, calling them Zion and Zilly. Fans of the pair are noticeably confused at the name selection, quickly pointing out Zillion Heir is a possible play on words for the term Zillionaire. Memes and gifs have flooded the internet since De La Rosa shared the news.

Cannon hasn’t mentioned the news on his own Instagram. After De La Rosa posted her announcement, Cannon posted a photo of himself lifting weights on his own story.

Making things even more awkward, De La Rosa has removed footage from her maternity shoot on Instagram. According to Page Six, she had written, “I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy.” The posts were then deleted following the news that Cannon is also expecting a baby with model Alyssa Scott.

Cannon Will Soon Have Seven Children

This isn’t Cannon’s first time becoming a dad. He and ex-wife Mariah Carey have 10-year-old twins together named Monroe and Moroccan. He and Brittany Bell also have two children together — 6-month-old daughter Powerful Queen Cannon and 4-year-old son Golden Cannon.

As you might expect, Cannon’s relationship status isn’t exactly clear-cut. His daughter with Bell was allegedly conceived while he and ex-girlfriend Jessica White were on a break from dating. It was previously reported that Cannon might have been dating three women at once this past Valentine’s Day.

Cannon and De La Rosa previously suffered a pregnancy loss in June 2020. The current state of their relationship is unclear, as Cannon hasn’t publicly acknowledged the twins’ birth, and De La Rosa didn’t mentioned Cannon in the announcement, other than her sons’ last name.
