Who is Lanisha Cole? Meet the Mother of Nick Cannon’s Ninth Child

Earlier this month, Nick Cannon surprised fans when he announced that he and Lanisha Cole were welcoming their first child together, making it ninth overall.

The couple named the baby girl Onyx, and the “Wild ‘N Out” host simultaneously asked his followers not to criticize Cole during the announcement of his daughter’s birth.

“I pray and ask others to project all criticism and cynicism on ME and not on the loving and precious Mothers of my children,” Cannon wrote.

Other mothers in question are Mariah Carey, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Alyssa Scott and Are Tisi.

But who is Cole? Shadow Room takes a deeper look into the new mother of ninth child Nick Cannon.

Mother of ninth child Nick Cannon was a game show model

Cole, 40, modeled for the game show Deal or No Deal from 2006 to 2008. She also modeled for eight seasons of The Price Is Right.

A year after leaving the show in 2010, she claimed to have been sexually harassed by producers Adam Sandler and Michael J. Richards while she was partially nude in a dressing room.

Cole eventually settled the case in 2013.

Cole was music video connoisseur for Trey Songz, Pharrell, dabbled in acting

She was also a well-known music video connoisseur, appearing in Farrell’s 2003 music video for “Frontin”, as well as videos for Trey Songz, The Roots and others.

The mother of ninth child Nick Cannon also dabbled in acting, with roles in 2004’s Soul Plane and 2012’s Soul Beautiful. She also appeared on the show Fact or Fake: Paranormal.

In 2011, the actress also joined the cast of the film Fact or Fiction: Paranormal Activity.

Cole is also an artist in his own right, having opened a gallery in Santa Monica back in January 2011 and has owned a photography studio in Los Angeles since 2013.

In May 2022, Cole began documenting her pregnancy on Instagram, however, she did not mention that Cannon was the father until Onyx arrived.

The couple has been back and forth for the past two years until recently.

Last February, shadow room reported that Cole expressed gratitude for her holding Cannon after it was revealed he tested positive for COVID-19.

The couple has been in an off and on relationship for the past two years.

In August 2020, Jessica White revealed that Cole and Nick had separated as he prepared to welcome his second daughter Powerful Queen Cannon with Brittany Bell and their fourth child overall, whom they welcomed in December of that year.

Rumors of a possible romance rekindling between Nick and LaNisha first surfaced last year when LaNisha shared that they both got tattoos in New York.
