Who is Lanisha Cole? Meet mother of Nick Cannon’s ninth baby

Nick Cannon surprised his fans by announcing in September 2022 that he and Lanisha Cole welcomed their first baby together — his ninth.

The duo named their daughter Onyx. In the infant’s Instagram debut, the “Wild ‘N Out” host asked his followers not to criticize Cole.

“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, who previously welcomed children with Mariah Carey, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Alyssa Scott and Bre Tiesi.

So who is the “guileless, peaceful and nonconfrontational” woman helping the actor expand his big brood? Here’s everything you need to know about Cole.

Cole worked as a “Deal or No Deal” briefcase model from 2006 to 2008. During that time, she also modeled on “The Price Is Right” for eight seasons of the game show.

One year after exiting the franchise in 2010, Cole claimed that she was sexually harassed by producers Adam Sandler and Michael G. Richards while partially nude in a dressing room.

She settled the case in 2013.

“7 months in and staying busy 🙏🏾,” she wrote. “Luckily I feel great and have energy most days.. but when I’m tired I’m TIREDDDDDD.”

However, she did not reveal that Cannon was the father until after Onyx arrived.
