“I wouldn’t be here right now if it wasn’t for my relationship and getting married. I wouldn’t have the same attitude towards everything else if I wouldn’t have gone through the divorce and stuff, too, if I wouldn’t have gone through that with Bre. 100% there’s no chance."

However, in March 2019, Tiesi had deleted all pictures of Manziel from her Instagram page, replying to comments about the current status of her relationship.

'The Nick Cannon Show' host is already a father to 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom he shares with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 4-year-old Golden and 1-year-old Powerful Queen, whom he shares with Brittany Bell, and 7-month-old twins Zion Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, whom he shares with Abby De La Rosa.

Nick Cannon knew about Bre Tiesi's pregnancy before he lost his 7th child late last year.

Back in December 2021, Cannon revealed that his 5-month-old son Zen, whom he shares with Alyssa Scott, had died after being diagnosed with brain cancer.

On his talk show earlier this morning, Cannon shared that he knew about Tiesi's pregnancy before Zen's death last month.

"So even going through all of that, this was always in the back of my mind, like, 'What is the right time? How do I share this?'" he said. "No one, we didn't expect Zen to pass away ... All of the news was so unexpected."

Cannon continued, saying he wanted to be respectful to Scott, who was going through her own grieving process.

"Bre was respectful enough — she held off making our announcements and speaking on social media," he added. 

"We wanted to, you know, hold on as long as we can, but it happened. We here and I'm with my family I get to discuss it, I get to be open."
