Mariah Carey's ex Nick Cannon is having a baby with his former girlfriend

Nick Cannon has revealed he is expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.

The 36-year-old America’s Got Talent and Wild ‘n Out host made the announcement on Thursday during a stint on The Breakfast Club show on New York’s WWPR-FM.

He called Brittany a “special young lady” and told the radio show hosts “I’ve got a baby on the way”.

Nick is also the father of five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe from his previous marriage to superstar singer Mariah Carey.

He also mentioned his current relationship with Mariah, saying he was unaware that her recent engagement to billionaire James Packer has reportedly been broken off.

Mariah and Nick split up in 2014 after six years of marriage.

The two are not currently in a relationship, but he told the radio show that he would not refer to Brittany as his “ex”.
