During a recent interview with the ‘Lovers and Friends’ podcast, the model and DJ opened up about navigating people’s opinions about her involvement with the 41-year-old comedian, her transition to a polyamorous lifestyle and why. she wants people to “stay the fuck away from my motherhood.
De La Rosa, 31, shares twin sons Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Cannon, which hosts “Wild ‘n Out” on VH1. Speaking to “Friends and Lovers” host Shan Boodram, De La Rosa pointed out that being in a polyamorous relationship doesn’t mean “you have low self-esteem or low self-esteem.”
De La Rosa – who said she was just “scratching the surface” of being a mother – told Boodram that although people have criticized her unconventional relationship, it doesn’t take away from her motherhood abilities. .
“The fact that I’m open in my relationship doesn’t change or take away from the type of mother I am to my kids,” De La Rosa said. “I’m thrilled that my kids are growing up and thinking, ‘Mom and dad, you all did it your way. And I love that.'”
Still, she admitted to being “oversensitive when people attack me and my motherhood.”
De La Rosa, who said she got involved with Cannon when she was 30, gushed that he had brought a “liberating vibe” into her life, and that while she was initially aware of the “type of lifestyle he had lived”, she was unaware of “the capacity of its true extent”. .
Cannon shares twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; a son, Golden Sagon, and a daughter, Mighty Queen, with Brittany Bell; another son, Legendary Love, with Bre Tiesi; and a daughter, Onyx Ice Cole, with LaNisha Cole.
Additionally, Cannon and model Alyssa Scott had a son, Zen, who died in December at 5 months old after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
Bell is currently pregnant with her third child with Cannon. De La Rosa is also expecting a third child, although she and Cannon have yet to publicly confirm paternity.
De La Rosa told Boodram that Cannon was her “main partner” and that she had been “monogamous by choice” during her pregnancy.
Although she has been criticized for her lifestyle, the mother-to-be says she is happy with her situation.
“Of course, yes, I can understand everyone’s disgust and disagreement with the way I have chosen to live my life. And I find it funny too when everyone always comes and goes, ‘He’s playing you, he’s playing you,'” De La Rosa said. “Technically speaking, we all know each other. It’s just how much do you want to know, how much do you choose to know. And I trust the connection I have with Nick.
While announcing the birth of daughter Onyx to former “The Price Is Right” model Cole on Thursday, Cannon slammed her growing family on Instagram.
“As we all know, I’m not easily triggered and I’m pretty tough-skinned and I’ve always been an open book, but not everyone in my family has the same level of strength,” said writes Cannon in the caption of the birth announcement. “So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism onto ME and not the loving and precious mothers of my children.”
