Nick Cannon, who just turned 31 last month, is not a little boy any more. He has his grown and sexy on display for the upcoming issue of Men’s Health Magazine. His new feature shows his shirtless and buff bod none of us really knew was there.
From the Mag:
He’s blossomed into a full-fledged entrepreneur in his early 30s as the chairman of TeenNick and head honcho of his own record label, in addition to other entertainment ventures.
And somehow, the host of America’s Got Talent and cast member of the new sitcom Up All Night found time to wed one of the world’s biggest stars. After getting hitched to Mariah Carey in 2008, he became a father to twins Moroccan and Monroe earlier this year. Here, Cannon shares his secrets for juggling a jam-packed schedule with dad duties, explains why he hasn’t lost his mojo after becoming a family man, and reveals what it’s like being married to a diva.
Men’s Health: You’re about 6 months into your new gig as a first-time dad. Can anything truly prepare guys for that role?
Nick Cannon: You know what? You talk to your parents. That’s probably what I did the most. It gives me even greater respect for my parents, just because I never thought about what they were going through when I was a youngster. I feel like everyone who raised me did a great job, so why not get the best advice for them?
MH: Is it fun, in a sense, that you and Mariah sometimes have no clue what you’re doing as parents?
NC: I think I’m actually built for fatherhood. I love to have a good time and play, but at the same time I’ve got a really serious side to me, and I think that’s the balance you have to have. Get on your kids’ level, but at any point in time, let them know who the parent is. You have to understand balance, and be willing to grow and learn from them daily.
