Nick Cannon is revealing how he splits his time with his many children.

On a recent episode of The Jason Lee Podcast, The Masked Singer host, 42, the dad of 12 said that his 8-month-old daughter Onyx is "probably the child that I spend the most time with."

He added, "I'm with her at least three times a week, for the full day. But I don't put that out there in the media, social media [because] it's not for them. But you know, LaNisha [Cole] and I have a super strong understanding and our co-parenting operation is so solid."

Cannon also said, "If you see me on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, my daughter [Onyx] is right next to me, whether I'm on set."

In addition to being dad to baby Onyx, Cannon shares twins Moroccan and Monroe, 12, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 54; son Rise, 7 months, daughter Powerful, 2, and son Golden, 6, with former Phoenix Suns dancer Brittany Bell; twin boys Zion and Zillion, 23 months, and daughter Beautiful, 5 months, with Abby De La Rosa; son Legendary, 9 months, with Selling Sunset cast member Bre Tiesi; daughter Halo, 5 months, and son Zen, who died at 5 months from brain cancer, with model Alyssa Scott.

Cannon recently confessed that he mixed up his Mother's Day cards for his "baby mammas."

"I tried my best, I really did," he added. "But I thought it would be really, really good to — you know, I could buy, whatever you know — to show people how you really feel, write it down."

Cannon continued, "So then as I'm writing the handwritten message, I get the cards mixed up. And then so when one baby mama reads the card about how I feel about the other baby mama…"
