Nick Cannon loves being a dad to his 11 wonderful children.

According to People, the Wild ‘N Out host plans to make himself available for each and every one of his offspring on Father's Day (June 16) so that they have the opportunity to connect with him and give him gifts.

"It’s supposed to be a day where I get to rest, but I want to give all my kids the opportunity to connect and give me gifts and all that type of stuff. It’s a fun day, and I appreciate all the love that I get on that day.” Cannon will be filming for The Masked Singer on Father's Day this year, but shared that a few of his kids will be "on set" with him to celebrate the special holiday. The entertainment icon is particularly excited for the arts and crafts that he will receive.

"I'm getting the macaroni necklaces, the construction paper card, all of that stuff, which I love. My offices are filled with great gifts that my kids have created and conjured up."

Cannon shares two children with singer Mariah Carey (twins Monroe and Moroccan Scott, 13), three with model Brittany Bell (Golden Sagon, 7, Powerful Queen, 3, and Rise Messiah, 2), three with internet personality Abby De La Rosa (twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, 2, and 18-month-old Zeppelin), two with model Alyssa Scott (late Zen, who passed away at 5-months-old, and 17-month-old Halo Marie Cannon), one with Selling Sunset star Bre Tiesi (Legendary Love, 1), and one with model LaNisha Cole (Onyx Ice Cole, 1).

Despite the chaos that comes with having 11 children, Cannon explained that he embraces each and every energetic moment attached to being a dad to such a large crew.

"I'm never overwhelmed, because overwhelmed means like almost when you can't handle it. But I'm definitely overly energetic when it comes to all the energy that comes from my kids. I feel that daily. They drive me to thrive. It's definitely from the time I open my eyes to the time I get to close them at night, it's all about the kids the whole time. When you have 12, it's definitely they're the pulse of all that I do."
