Who Is Lanisha Cole? Meet The Mother Of Nick Cannon’s Ninth Child

Nick Cannon surprised fans earlier this month when he announced that he and LaNisha Cole were welcoming their first child together, making for his ninth overall.

The couple named the baby girl Onyx, with the “Wild ‘N Out” host simultaneously asked his followers not to criticize Cole during his daughter’s birth announcement.

“I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children,” wrote Cannon.


The other mothers in question are Mariah Carey, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Alyssa Scott, and Are Tiesi.

But who is Cole? The Shade Room takes a deeper look into the new mother to Nick Cannon’s ninth child.
