Despite the divorce of the former couple, Nick revealed in an interview with People magazine in January 2018 that he has ‘unconditional love’ for Mariah.
He emphasized the importance of showing their cute twins that he and his former partner respect each other after they gave up in 2016.
The host of Wild ‘n Out pointed out that his positive relationship with Mariah allows them to grow older together as a united front, as opposed to just’ co-parenting ‘.
He said, “It’s funny when they say” co-parenting “- that sentence is a little superfluous. You cannot be a parent, you must be older, and that is what we do well, because when it comes to our children, we are selfless individuals – they are the first.
‘You are reminded that it is all about unconditional love and they have to understand that to the core.
“When we can prove that – even when we are not together, [that] we love each other unconditionally – and become that good example for our children, they will hopefully become good people. “

‘The holidays were fun to watch him crawl and try to take his first steps and watch his brothers and sisters try to help him walk around. It was very fun.’
Meanwhile, Cannon previously admitted to the hosts of the American chat show The Talk that he is not yet ‘ready’ to get married.
He told co-host Paula Abdul: “I have a theory, if I’m not good at something, I’m not going to keep screwing it up.”

‘So relationships, my theory about that is that I much prefer to improve myself and have a friend, as opposed to trying to jump in and be responsible for someone else’s happiness.
‘I’m not done yet. I still have the feeling that I still have a lot to do and my children are my main concern, so I can’t really sign up for it now. “
Mariah and Nick tied the knot during a restrained ceremony in the Bahamas on April 30, 2008. They announced their divorce in 2014, with their divorce in 2016.
