Nick Cannon is expecting another baby with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell – their third child together and Cannon's 10th overall. Here's a look at the actor and TV host's career and net worth.

Cannon's net worth currently stands at $20 million, according to a Celebrity Net Worth estimate.

The 41-year-old earns around $5 million per year for hosting various television shows, including "The Masked Singer," according to the outlet.

He reportedly earned $70,000 per episode when he hosted "America's Got Talent" from 2009 to 2016.

In addition to the two reality competition series, Cannon also hosts his own podcast "Cannon's Class" as well as "Wild & Out," a successful television comedy sketch show on MTV that debuted in July 2005.

After 15 seasons on the air, "Wild 'N Out" came to a halt in 2020 when Cannon went viral for alleged hateful and anti-Semitic comments he made on his podcast. But though he was initially fired from the show, he was later rehired and returned as host for the 16th season in 2021.

Born in San Diego, California, Cannon began performing at the early age of 8. He started off his professional career when he was still a teenager in a rap group called Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad.

The multi-talented performer's television debut came when he landed a role on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show "All That" in the mid-'90s, while he made his film debut in "Men in Black II" in 2002.

Cannon's first starring role came when he played Devon Miles in the movie "Drumline" in the same year. He went on to star in several more films, including "Love Don't Cost A Thing," "Shall We Dance," "Roll Bounce" and "Bobby."

He was honored with the Breakthrough Actor of the Year Award at the Cannes Film Festival and received a nod from the Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance in "Bobby."

Cannon welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe, now 11, with his ex-wife Mariah Carey in 2011 as well as son Golden, 5, and daughter Powerful, 1, with Bell in 2017 and 2020, respectively.

When Bell's second pregnancy was announced, Cannon was dating model Jessica White, according to Us Weekly.

After the birth of his two children with Bell, Cannon went on to have several more kids with three other women. He welcomed his second set of twins, Zion and Zillion, now 1, with DJ Abby De La Rosa in June 2021.

In the same month, model Alyssa Scott gave birth to her and Cannon's son Zen, who died five months later after battling brain cancer.

In June, Cannon and Bre Tiesi welcomed their first baby together, a son named Legendary.

On Wednesday, Cannon announced via Instagram that Bell is pregnant with their third child together.

"Time Stopped and This Happened. #Sunshine #SonRISE," Cannon captioned a video that featured their maternity shoot.
