The Cannon household is about to get a whole lot funnier: as Nick Cannon proudly revealed, he's got another mini-me on the way. That's right. Not only will he and his girlfriend be welcoming a baby boy in a matter of time, but it'll also mark baby #8 for the proud father. Here's what we know so far. Keep scrolling.

On Monday, January 31, the Wild 'n Out star first broke the big news while standing before an in-studio crowd. "This was always in the back of my mind, like, 'What is the right time? How do I share this?'" the comedian explained. Sure enough, as he continued to share, he and model Bre Tiesi are expecting a baby boy. But while the upcoming arrival marks their very first child together, this certainly isn't Cannon's first rodeo. In fact, he's actually got 7 other mini-me's running around Hollywood...

"As everyone knows, I have a lot of children and I love them all dearly, sincerely," Cannon further explained. "Every single one of my children are just as special as the other." For those who forgot, the funny guy is also proud father to 7 kids: Monroe and Moroccan (10), Golden (4), Powerful Queen (1), Zion and Zillion (7 months), and his late son Zen, who unfortunately passed away in December after battling health issues. But while he hasn't been shy about his grieving journey, Cannon's latest news serves as a much-needed ray of hope among these trying times.

In fact, as the Nick Cannon Show host put it, "I think through this journey I am in a positive space, that I'm in a great space." We love to hear it. And it seems his girlfriend is just as hopeful. "You are surrounded by so much love. Mommy and daddy can't wait to meet you," Bre later gushed on Instagram. And while we have yet to hear when, exactly, the two will be welcoming their little bundle of joy, you can bet we'll be sitting here (impatiently) waiting. Until then, be sure to stay tuned for all the latest updates. And, of course, congratulations to the happy couple!
