Mariah Carey has revealed that she can't keep up with how many children her ex-husband Nick Cannon has.

Mariah Carey has opened up about her opinion on ex-husband Nick Cannon's growing family, and has said that she doesn't "keep up" with his children and baby mamas.

The 53-year-old singer shares 11-year-old twins with Cannon, and he has welcomed seven more since, with two baby mama's currently pregnant.

A source close to the singer shared to US Weekly the status of her relationship with Cannon and his other children.

“Mariah doesn’t keep up with Nick’s babies and baby mamas,” the insider revealed.

“There’s too many to keep up with! She’s happy for him and wishes him the best.”

This comes after Cannon welcomed his ninth child earlier this month with baby mama LaNisha Cole, who they named Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.
