It will be a boy for Nick Cannon and his off-and-on girlfriend Brittany Bell, according to a report in Us Weekly.

The artist confirmed that he was about to be a father of three during an interview with The Breakfast Club in November.

"Who said it wasn't mine?" Nick replied when asked about Brittany's pregnancy. "I've got a baby on the way … absolutely ... God said be fruitful and multiply. I'm doing the lord's work out here."

Rumors that he was expecting a little bundle of joy surfaced in early November. Brittany, a former beauty queen, is believed to be seven months along.

Coincidentally, Nick has a new single out titled, "Baby on the Way."

In a chat with Entertainment Tonight, Nick said of his impending third child, "It's outstanding. Honestly, they say even in unexpected situations, you still embrace the beauty of bringing a life into this world, because that is what life is all about."

Brittany has taken to Instagram of late to show off her growing baby bump.

"Life growing inside you is fun during the holidays.. people ask what I/we dressed up as .. well.. here you go 💋 #gumballmachine #bubble," she said.
