  • Despite everything, Nick Cannon is still a "hopeless romantic".
  • The TV personality recently opened up about how he has "failed" at "monogamy and relationships" in the past.
  • However, he still believes there is hope for him to find someone to spend his life with in the future.

Despite his "failed" relationships, Nick Cannon is still a "hopeless romantic".

The Masked Singer recently weighed in on his thoughts on marriage during a conversation on the All The Way with Shelley Wade podcast.

"I'm a hopeless romantic at the end of the day," Cannon, who finalised his divorce from Mariah Carey in 2016, said during the episode.

"So, I love the concept. I love the ceremony of it. I've failed miserably so many times at monogamy and relationships. But like, you know, God ain't done with me. We gonna figure it out."

Host Shelley Wade then asks Cannon what the deciding factor would be when choosing to marry again, to which Cannon responded, "I think, as I'm growing, I mean, I've probably had a few midlife crises."

He continued, "I'm liking the man that I'm growing into, and I feel like someone who will understand me and can stand by me."

When discussing Love Languages, the Drumline star noted acts of service is a "big one" for him.  

"When I say service, it's more about servitude….You can serve each other, and where you're weak, they're strong," he explained. "And if I can ever find somebody that knows how to hold me down through all my madness, chaos, and toxicity, that's probably somebody I can probably rock with for life."

Cannon, who is expecting his eighth child with model Bre Tiesi, previously commented on the prospect of getting married again, saying that he wouldn't get the "government involved," but he would consider "something on a spiritual or holistic ritual."
