The multi-talented 36-year-old admitted he's always wanted more children, and that this new child was definitely not an accident.

'The new baby, was it an "oops baby?"' prodded the morning show's host, J Cruz.

'Never an "oops baby!" I'm so calculated with my moves,' the rapper clarified, 'I've always wanted five kids. 

'Just because my marriage was over didn't mean I couldn't continue my family.'

The Wild 'n Out star - wearing a black turban with yellow gold diamonds - spilled the details about his new baby mama Bell, 29.

Co-host Krystal Bee then asked how Mariah took the surprising news.

'She came at me first about it, so it was actually easier,' the Baby On the Way singer recalled.

'She called me and she was funny with it, she was like, "Mhmmm I heard about you out here in these streets."'

And when it comes to his twins, it seems revealing the news to them was even easier.

All about the kids: Cannon reveals that his twins, Monroe and Moroccan, are excited about their new baby brother 

'The kids are super excited,' the proud father shared, explaining he spoke to them after the two had watched the movie Sporks, which is an animated film about delivering babies.

According to Nick, his sweet daughter Monroe said as long as she stays the oldest, she's good with having another baby  brother.

When asked whether having a child with a new baby mama means he's officially moved on [from Mariah], the actor answered:

'Mariah, Moroccan and Monroe will always be my family, but we always can have other aspects of our family.'
