Wendy Williams has never been the type to hold her tongue, but for some, the TV talk show host crossed the line this week when she referred to comedian Nick Cannon’s third child as an “oops baby.”
While discussing his holiday schedule on The Wendy Williams Show, Cannon shared that he’ll be visiting his twins, Monroe and Moroccan, whom he shares with ex-wife, Mariah Carey. Having an “extended family,” Cannon will also visit his youngest son, Golden, whom he shares with former girlfriend and 2010 Miss Universe Guam, Brittany Bell.
“I’m Saint Nick, for real; obviously, I have an extended family and I’ll be visiting them in many houses over the holidays,” Cannon said as seen in the clip below. Williams then asked if he will be visiting his “oops baby,” implying Golden was unplanned. Cannon quickly responded in shock and laughed it off.
The father of three has since responded to the awkward moment, sharing video via social media of Golden reading at age 1.
“Got another Genius on my hands!!! The Golden Child! No oops over here @wendyshow LOL🙌🏾❤️ My guy is brilliant! Reading at the age of 1!! #Genius”
