Fans are confused after father of seven Nick Cannon seemingly proposed to a mystery woman just days after declaring ex Mariah Carey to be his “fairytale” love.
The “Wild ‘N Out” host, 41, took to Instagram late Thursday night to share photos of him and an unidentified woman hugging, as well as a second snap of a massive diamond ring.
“I said I would never do it again, but…Finally doing what the world wants me to do…,” Cannon captioned the post.
Many believe that the snaps are simply teasers from a new music video for Cannon’s song, “I Do,” featuring Chris Brown that dropped in May.
Fans also flocked to the comment section sharing their speculation over the post considering his recent statements about ex-wife Carey.
“Thought you just said you wanted to marry Mariah,” one user wrote, with another adding, “This gotta be a music video cuz IKYFL.”
“Doing what the world wants you to do? This whole post is confusing,” another user chimed in, with one more critic questioning, “What does Nick want? I would hate to be the woman… The post mentions nothing about love. You just doing what other people want & she said YES.”
“Didn’t you just say you wanted Mariah back? …Let me go mind my business,” another confused observer wrote.
Cannon told host Tee of “The Hottee Talk Show Podcast” on Wednesday of his ex-wife, “It was literally like a fairytale with Mariah, so I would rather it just be that way. I appreciate that fantasy because if I tried to go back and it wasn’t the same, I’d be like, ‘Damn, I messed it up.”
“If I had the opportunity, if it could be the way it was, I’m there.”
The former talk show host was married to the 53-year-old vocal powerhouse from 2008 to 2016. The pair share Cannon’s eldest children, 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
Cannon is currently expecting his 8th child with Bre Tiesi.
The actor is also dad to 5-year-old son Golden Sagon and 1-year-old daughter Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell; and 1-year-old twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa.
Cannon also shared late son Zen — who died on Dec. 5 at 5 months old — with Alyssa Scott.
“This is just us,” she said last month. “What you do outside of that is what you do outside of that. Everything is respectful. Everything is honest.”
Cannon has not confirmed an engagement. Reps for Cannon did not immediately return our request for comment.
