Nick Cannon has sparked speculation that he is expecting his eighth child.

The "Wild 'N Out" star, 40, and pregnant model Bre Tiesi hosted what appeared to be a gender reveal party in Malibu, California, on Sunday afternoon.

In the photos obtained by TMZ, Cannon and Tiesi were surrounded by friends and family at the party, which was decorated with blue and pink balloons.

Tiesi, who divorced ex-NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel in November 2021, proudly showed off her growing baby bump in a body-hugging white strapless dress. The "Masked Singer" host also sported an all-white ensemble consisting of a hoodie, sweatpants, sneakers and a beanie.

The two were photographed hugging and holding hands at the event. Cannon was also snapped cradling Tiesi's bump while flashing a big smile.

In another photo, guests shot off party poppers filled with blue confetti, revealing that the baby is a boy.

The baby shower came months after Cannon revealed he was trying to remain celibate until 2022 on the advice of his therapist after welcoming four children with three different women in under a year. He made the revelation when he appeared on Revolt TV's "Drink Champs" in October 2021.

"I told you, man, I'm celibate right now," Cannon told DJ EFN and N.O.R.E. during the interview. "I'm going to see if I could make it to 2022."

He continued, "I'm trying to chill out though. I'm chillin', I'm kind of stepping away, getting focused, going within, getting my celibacy on. I have enough children, enough frolicking, I'm good right now."

Cannon shares 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey, as well as 4-year-old son Golden "Sagon" and 1-year-old daughter Powerful Queen with ex Brittany Bell. He also welcomed 6-month-old twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion "Zilly" Heir, with Abby De La Rosa in June 2021.

He tragically lost his 5-month-old son Zen, whom he shared with ex Alyssa Scott, to brain cancer in December last year.

Cannon previously said that the cancer was detected when they took Zen for a health checkup.

"We thought it would be a routine process," he said in an episode of "The Nick Cannon Show" last month, E! News reported. "We went in just to check his sinuses, and they actually said his sinuses were pretty cool."

"But by the time we found out that he had another condition. And I think it was called, if I'm not mistaken, fluid that was building up in his head, and that was the cause," Cannon added, referring to the condition hydrocephalus. "His head was starting to get big. When we found out it was more, they called it a malignant tumor in his head."

Last week, Cannon shared on Instagram photos of his three youngest children with his twins Monroe and Moroccan as he paid tribute to his late son.

"Still missing my little dude… His spirit and brightness were soo strong #ZensLight. 'To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.' 2 Corinthians 5:8," he wrote in the caption. "The whole family, we ALL miss you, young king! Forever our angel."

Meanwhile, Tiesi got engaged to NFL star Manziel in 2017 and quietly married him in 2018 at a California courthouse.

Six months later, she filed for divorce and scrubbed Manziel, 29, from her Instagram page, alleging that "vows were broken."
