Nick Cannon is one busy man.
Nick and Mariah’s babies have quite a huge following on social media, thanks to all the photos that he and wife Mariah Carey like to post up. But he also explained, during a visit to E! News Monday, that it’s one thing to share pics on Instagram and Facebook.
“I actually don’t want them to be in the business, but I understand that people have fallen in love with them and [they have] fans and stuff,” Nick told cohost Terrence Jenkins and guest host Jordin Sparks.
Hence the upcoming Roc and Roe’s 12 Days of Christmas, the proud dad’s first children’s book with Scholastic, featuring his and Mariah’s son, Moroccan, and daughter, Monroe, as the main characters.
“They’re like the new Raggedy Ann and Andy,” the Wild ‘N Out and America’s Got Talent host joked, ‘the adventures of Roc ‘n’ Roe,’ to see my kids come to life in a story book and all this other stuff.”
Where does he get all his energy from? Juggling work and family? Nick says that since he suffers from the autoimmune disease lupus, he fights chronic fatigue by staying healthy—and busy!
“So my concept is, the more that I go and the more that I push and I stay on that regimen [in the gym, eating right, etc.], it kinda keeps me going so my body doesn’t get the opportunity to kinda be like,” he slumped, “‘Oh, I’m tired.'”
