Nick Cannon Says His Family Always “Comes First”

There is no doubt that Nick Cannon has become quite the family man since marrying Mariah Carey and having two children, Moroccan and Monroe, with the chart-topping diva. In a new interview with Parade Magazine, the reality competition show host talks about why he thinks family comes first, his wife’s feud with Nick Minaj on “American Idol,” and where he is today, one year after his health scare. Here are some highlights:

On balancing family life with their busy careers: ”Family comes first. That’s really what it is, and then everything else kind of works around that. As long as we prioritize and make sure our kids and each other are first, then our occupations come after that, even though we’re extremely busy. We take the time out to make sure we focus on each other when we need to.”

On who the twins are growing up to be like: ”We’ve got two, so I think we kind of got a little bit of each of us. My daughter is probably more like me, and my son is more like my wife in certain areas. But then obviously, my daughter is definitely into feminine, prissy, glamorous things like her mother.”

On helping Mariah handle her feud with Nicki Minaj: ”I don’t need to give her any advice, because my wife is the strongest and classiest woman I’ve ever met. She knows how to handle herself extremely well.”

On how he’s feeling after a year of health issues: ”I feel great. I’m in tip-top shape. It was scary at the top of the year, but once you start doing what you’re supposed to do, you’re good.”
