Being a dad of 11 breaks the bank.

Nick Cannon clarified how much money he actually pays in child support each year after The US Sun estimated that he spends $3 million.

“I definitely spend a lot more than that on my children annually,” the “All That” alum, 42, told the Neighborhood Talk on Friday.

“I don’t plan to ever have to participate in the governmental system of child,” he continued.

Cannon became a dad in April 2011 when he and then-wife Mariah Carey welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe, now 11.

After their split, the “Wild ‘N Out” host welcomed three children each with Brittany Bell and Abby De La Rosa.

Bell, 35, gave birth to son Golden, 5, and daughter Powerful, 1, in February 2017 and December 2020, respectively, followed by son Rise, 1 month, in September.

As for De La Rosa, the 32-year-old DJ’s twin sons, Zion and Zillion, 1, arrived in June 2021. She gave birth to daughter Beautiful on Friday.

Cannon is also the father of son Legendary, 4 months, with Bre Tiesi, as well as daughter Onyx, 2 months, with Lanisha Cole.

While the comedian and Alyssa Scott welcomed son Zen in June 2021, the 5-month-old died that December after battling brain cancer. The duo are currently expecting their second child together, Cannon’s 12th.

The former Nickelodeon star has defended his unconventional family dynamic in the past, telling Dr. Laura Berman in February that he doesn’t think monogamy is a “healthy” option.

“I feel like that gets into the space of selfishness and ownership,” the “Drumline” star said on “The Language of Love” podcast, adding that he takes “full responsibility” for his big brood.

Four months later, Cannon joked to 94.7’s Shelley Wade that he has “failed miserably” at monogamy and relationships.

“God ain’t done with me,” the “Masked Singer” host said in June. “We’re gonna figure it out.”
