Nick Cannon says he’s an ‘engaged’ father of 8 ‘contrary to popular belief’

Nick Cannon has earned the title of octo-dad as he talks about being a father of eight with five different women in a new interview wit Men's Health.

"Contrary to popular belief, I’m probably engaged throughout my children’s day, more often than the average adult can be," the 41-year-old told the publication. "If I’m not physically in the same city with my kids, I’m talking to them before they go to school via FaceTime and stuff. And then when I am [in the same city, I’m] driving my kids to school, like making sure I pick ’em up. All of those things, making sure [I’m there for] all extracurricular activities. I’m involved in everything from coaching to having guitar lessons with my daughter every week."
