The 36-year-oldAmerica's Got Talent host confirmed he's expecting a child with Bell, his pregnant ex-girlfriend, during a Thursday interview with the Breakfast Club.
"I've got a baby on the way," Cannon said.
When one of the radio hosts clarified whether Cannon was referring to Bell's pregnancy, Cannon replied, "Absolutely.... Who said it wasn't mine?"
Cannon seemed nonchalant and very happy about the situation despite already being dad to five-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with his ex-wife Mariah Carey.
"God said be fruitful and multiply," Cannon noted on the radio show, jokingly adding: "I'm doing the Lord's work... everybody get a baby! I'm passing them out."
Bell, a 28-year-old Guamanian-American actress and former Miss Arizona USA, is reportedly about six months along in her pregnancy. She and Cannon dated on and off following his high-profile split from Carey in late 2014.
Bell's Miss USA and Universe pals apparently threw her a baby shower this week.
"A sweet moment of #celebration with a few of the many incredible women in my life. Missing the rest of you," Bell captioned a sweet Instagram photo on Wednesday of her friends touching her baby bump.
"Miss USA /Miss Universe not only puts you in a rare sisterhood no money can buy.. but your child ends up with some of the most naturally beautiful, sweetest, and strongest women from around the country/world to call Aunties!!"
Bell is thrilled about motherhood, as she captioned a photo of herself wearing a white dress last week, "<3 'Children are a gift from God...' Psalm 127:3."
