Who is Lanisha Cole? Meet Mom of Nick Cannon’s Ninth Baby

Nick Cannon surprised his fans by announcing in September 2022 that he and Lanisha Cole welcomed their first baby together – his ninth.

The duo named their daughter Onyx. In the baby’s Instagram debut, the ‘Wild ‘N Out’ presenter asked his followers not to criticize Cole.

“I pray and ask others to please direct all criticism and cynicism at ME and not at the loving and precious mothers of my children,” wrote Cannon, who previously welcomed children with Mariah Carey, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Alyssa Scott and Bre Tiesi.

So who is the “guiltless, peaceful and non-confrontational” woman helping the actor expand his large brood? Here’s everything you need to know about Cole.
