It looks as though radio host and television personality Nick Cannon is looking to take a personal step in an effort to nip his ever-growing family in the bud… well, you get the drift. Speaking with E! News ahead of the arrival of his eighth child, Cannon says he’s currently considering getting a vasectomy.

"I already went and got my vasectomy consultation," Cannon, now 41-years-old told the Daily Pop. "I ain’t looking to populate the Earth completely, but I’m definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have." While he and model Bre Tiesi currently have a baby on the way, Nick also shares his 11-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; 5-year-old son Golden and 1-year-old daughter Powerful with Brittany Bell; and another set of 11-month-old twins, Zion and Zillion, with Abby De La Rosa. Cannon and Alyssa Scott lost their 5-month-old son, Zen, to brain cancer in December of last year.

Cannon tells E! News, "when you’re blessed with the gifts of children — and as we all know, I’ve been through so much. I find solace, I find peace in my children, and I find purpose." However, he does understand how his own busy schedule has kept him from being around as much as he would like. "I take my kids to school every morning," he says... "I FaceTime [them]."
Eventually, he believes the investment will show promising returns. "I’m going to have to recoup some of this," Cannon jokes. "You definitely gonna see some Cannons on the screen and hear their music."
