Over the weekend, Nick Cannon celebrated the birth of his eleventh child, a daughter named Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, with Abby De La Rosa.

Being that Cannon has eleven kids with six women, you can only imagine the kind of child support payments the 42-year-old has to make.

While a report from The U.S. Sun suggested that Cannon pays about $3 million every year in child support, the actor has since responded to those claims, and refuted them, saying the actual amount is “a lot more.”

Cannon told The Neighborhood Talk, “I definitely spend a lot more than that on my children annually. I don’t plan to ever have to participate in the governmental system.”

Beautiful Zeppelin is Cannon’s third child with Abby De La Rosa, already parents to 17-month-old Zion and Zillion, and shortly after her birth, he announced baby number 12 was on the way -- his second with singer Alyssa Scott. Cannon also shares twins Monroe and Morrocan, with ex-wife Mariah Carey. Nick also shares baby Onyx, with Lanisha Cole, and Legendary Love, with Brie Tiesi.
