Nick Cannon enjoys being an entertainer for more reasons than one. In addition to being able to fulfill his dream of spreading joy through acting, the father of two gets to spend more time with his kids than the average parent does in a day.
The ‘America’s Got Talent’ host tells media, “There are so many other occupations that take the parents away from the home for a long period of time. The beauty of being an entertainer is I probably get to spend more time with my kids than the average person because I’m not on a 9 to 5 schedule. We are lucky because we get the ability to bring our kids with us a lot of the times and we get to control a lot of our hours.”
Cannon previously told the press that he wouldn’t want his kids to work in show business. He further discusses his desire for Monroe and Moroccan to choose a different career path with PEOPLE saying, “I want them to have a sense of accomplishment. When your parents are entertainers that is the easiest thing — that’s a given. I would rather them strive for something like sports or education, something that is technically outside their wheelhouse.”
Nick and wife Mariah Carey welcomed their children into the world on April 30, 2011. The loving couple wed five years ago.
