In an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106, Cannon, 36, recounted the phone conversation the exes had about the unexpected pregnancy news.
"She came at me first about it, so it was actually easier," Cannon told the hosts. "I don't know how she heard about it, but she called me, and she was funny with it. She was like, 'Mhm, I heard about you out here in these streets.'"
In November, Cannon went public with the news that he is expecting his third child with his now ex-girlfriend Miss Arizona U.S.A. Brittany Bell, during an appearance on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. The America's Got Talent host shares his other two children—5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan—with Carey. The pair was married for eight years before finalizing their divorce this year.
