Nick Cannon, who has 4 baby mamas, says his favourite is "the next one"

"I don't think that was a good answer."

Nick Cannon has been making headlines all year since welcoming four babies in the space of seven months.

It doesn't look like talk about his fathering of seven kids by four different women is going to die down anytime soon, either.

In a clip from Wednesday's episode of his self-titled daytime TV show, the 41-year-old sat down for a game of 'Plead the Fifth' with Andy Cohen.

Now, if you've seen a single episode of a Real Housewives reunion – or the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion, for that matter – you'll know Andy isn't one to shy away from asking his interviewees questions they might not want to answer.

You'd think, then, that someone being asked about the four mothers of their children would jump at the chance to plead the fifth and avoid the question, right?

Wrong, it turns out, if that someone is Nick Cannon.


"Who is your favourite baby mama?" Andy asked the dad-of-seven on his turn.

As Nick appeared to debate answering, the studio audience began to chant "plead the fifth."

If only he'd have listened.

"I got this. I ain't scared of you, Andy," Nick joked. "I ain't scared of you, Andy!"

The audience oohed and ahhed as Andy pressed, "We know there are a few..."

"My favourite baby mama is the next one," Nick answered as Andy looked shocked.

"I don't think that was a good answer," Andy replied.

Nick previously opened up about not "subscribing" to the idea of monogamy, saying that it wasn't his idea to have seven kids by four different women.

"Those women and all women are the ones that open themselves up to say, 'I would like to allow this man in my world and I will birth this child,'" he told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. "So it ain't my decision, I'm just following suit."

Nick's seven children are as follows: 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan (who he shares with Mariah Carey), 4-year-old Golden and 11-month-old Powerful Queen (who he shares with model Brittany Bell), five-month-old Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir (who he shares with DJ Abby De La Rosa), and four-month-old Zen (who he shares with model Alyssa Scott).
