Here's what Mariah Carey thinks of Nick Cannon expecting an 8th child
He confirmed the news on Monday.
With the news of Nick Cannon expecting his eighth child, many of us can't help but wonder what each of his five baby mothers think of his situation.
Most notably, what the first and most famous of the mothers, Mariah Carey, thinks of her ex-husband's endeavours in recent years.
Well, according to Us Weekly sources, Mariah is fairly unbothered as long as her kids are good.
The former spouses share 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, and they're Mariah's priority in all of this.

“Mariah and Nick are really great co-parents and have a good relationship [and] friendship now so any time Nick has exciting news to share, she’s just happy for him,” a source told the publication.
“As long as Roc and Roe are still very much a part of Nick’s life, which they are, and he gives them equal attention, that’s what she solely cares about.”
Roc and Roe are Mariah's only children. Nick, however, is also dad to 4-year-old Golden and 1-year-old Powerful Queen (who he shares with model Brittany Bell), 7-month-old Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir (who he shares with DJ Abby De La Rosa).
He and model Alyssa Scott also shared son Zen, who sadly passed away at just 5 months old in December.
He is now expecting his eighth child, another son, with model Bre Tiesi.
Despite Nick having his hands full with work and their many younger siblings, Roc and Roe still have a present dad, according to the source.
“They spend a lot of time with Nick and he seems to balance time well with all the children. It’s a lot to juggle and he has a lot on his plate, but at the end of the day, family comes first,” they continued.
On Monday's episode of his talk show, Nick acknowledged social media comments that criticised him for fathering so many children in such a short space of time, but insisted he is a committed father who loves all his children equally.
He also spoke of grappling with "guilt" in the aftermath of Zen's passing, having known he was expecting another child at the time.
Alyssa recently posted on Instagram seemingly in reaction to news of Nick becoming a soon-to-be father of eight, sharing she found it "painful" for their son to be "part of conversations that aren’t in alignment with his light and legacy".
She thanked those who sent condolences and kind messages over the past few months and assured those concerned that she is "at peace".
