Nick Cannon and radio personality Abby De La Rosa welcomed twin boys on Monday (June 14), making the multi-hyphenate artist a father of two sets of twins.
Cannon already shares 9-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey. He’s also father to a 3-year-old son named Golden and daughter Powerful Queen who arrived in December 2020 (yes, Powerful Queen).
De La Rosa revealed the twins’ names in an Instagram post with the caption, “JUNE 14TH, 2021. Welcome to the world Zion Mixolydian Cannon & Zillion Heir Cannon.”

That’s right. Zillion Heir. As the news made its way across social media, Nick Cannon soon became a trending Twitter topic for the names he chooses for his children (Moroccan, Monroe, Powerful Queen, Zillion Heir, Zion Mixolydian and Golden Cannon). He’s reportedly expecting a seventh child as well — his fourth in six months — but the baby’s name has yet to be revealed.
Cannon and De La Rosa announced they were having twins in April with a since-deleted Instagram post.
“Our dearest sons — my miracle babies, Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy,” she wrote alongside photos of her and Cannon. “I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy. That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose.
“Your Dad & I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you — is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both.”
Now that little Zillion Heir and Zion Mixolydian are here, Twitter couldn’t be more excited to tear Cannon apart.
