While the world looks on in confusion at Nick Cannon’s strange relationship with the mothers of his children, the women he’s having kids with think their situation is nothing to gawk at.

Bre Tiesi, who is currently pregnant with Cannon’s eighth child, opened up about their relationship in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
During her conversation with ET’s Kevin Frazier, Tiesi talked about why she chose to have her first child with a man who shares so many other children already.
“I’m not really opinionated in other’s people business. That’s not really my thing,” she said. “When it first started happening I was just like, ‘I don’t understand why everyone is so concerned. Like, why are you upset about what happens in my household?’ For me, it doesn’t actually genuinely affect me. I understand people’s side and they’re used to their conventional relationships. That’s what’s instilled in us. Whatever you want to call this has been going on for years.”
While she doesn’t mind the fact that Cannon has overlapping relationships, that doesn’t mean she’s communicating with the mothers of his other children.
“No, I respect everyone’s space,” Tiesi said. “At some point, we will. We just don’t necessarily need to at the moment. I think no matter what, the kids are going to be super close.”
During another conversation on B. Simone and Meagan Brooks’ podcast, Bre was asked what kind of relationship she and Nick have, whether monogamous, polygamous, or open. In response, the former Wild N’ Out girl explained that they don’t have a name for their relationship.
“It’s not necessarily anything. This is just us,” she explained. “This is our relationship and what you do outside of that is what you do outside of that. What I do outside of that is what I do outside of that. Everything is respectful; everything is honest.”
Nick Cannon is currently expecting another child with Abby De La Rosa, which will be his ninth. The Masked Singer host is a father to 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 5-year-old Golden “Sagon” and 1-year-old Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell, and 1-year-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa. Last year, Cannon welcomed his seventh child, Zen, with Alyssa Scott, who tragically died at 5 months old after a battle with brain cancer.
While Nick talked about his celibacy journey last year, he went on to admit he broke it following Zen’s passing, which led to the children he’s currently expecting with Tiesi and De La Rosa.
