AceShowbiz - Abby De La Rosa seemed to be in on Nick Cannon's recent joke. After "The Masked Singer" host shared proposal photos, the DJ jokingly congratulated her "newly engaged baby daddy" on social media.
Making use of Instagram on Friday, July 15, Abby shared a video of herself and the rapper/comedian during a vacation. "Enjoying the Bahamas with my newly engaged baby daddy! And NO, it's not with me! Lmaoooo Congratulations Nick!" she captioned the clip.
Just one day earlier, Nick sparked engagement rumors after posting a photo of him hugging a mystery woman. He also shared a close-up picture of him opening a box with a massive diamond ring inside.
In the caption of the post, the "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" host wrote, I said I would never do it again." He added, "But...Finally doing what the world wants me to do," along with a ring emoji.
However, Nick has clarified that he used the images to promote his new single "Eyes Closed". Asked about the inspiration behind the visuals, he told Entertainment Tonight, "I love the idea of marriage, especially the ceremony, the proposing, the idea of just falling in love." He added, "Who cares what the rest of the world thinks? You never know."
"I'm doing what the world wants me to do, I'm dropping an amazing music video," he continued. "... I'm really excited about it. The topic is about just going in with your eyes closed and being a hopeless romantic that everyone knows that I am... It's a wedding anthem."
Nick claimed that filming the music video "was scary." He further explained, "That's a big step, especially [with] all that I got going on in my life, just the hint of it shocked the world... If imma do that, I got to be really ready and prepared."
Nick was previously married to Mariah Carey, with whom he shares twins Moroccan and Monroe. The pair split in 2014 and their divorce was finalized in 2016. He has since fathered five other children with three different women.
Nick himself is currently expecting a baby boy with model Bre Tiesi and a ninth child with Abby, who also gave birth to his fifth and sixth kids, twins Zion and Zillion.
