Nick Cannon would never judge someone for how many kids they have
Nick Cannon has insisted he would not be concerned if a potential romantic partner had the same amount of kids as him. Speaking to 'Open Monogamy' author Dr. Tammy Nelson, on YouTube, he said: "My lifestyle only merits me to respect someone ... I would just be a hypocrite to the whole thing.

Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things..
It’s a love story that's been 20 years in the making! J.Lo and Ben Affleck's romance first began in 2002 when they dated for 18 months before suddenly ending their engagement and splitting in 2004. But in 2021, Bennifer was back and now Bennifer is forever because the couple wed in a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas on Saturday July 16! This is how they got to their happily ever after...
How they met
In 2001, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met on the set of the movie ‘Gigli’. At the time, the singer was married to her second husband, Cris Judd. In 2016, the actress reflected on the beginning of their relationship in an interview with People, saying: "We didn't try to have a public relationship, we just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids, and it was like 'Oh my God.' It was just a lot of pressure."
J.Lo files for divorce from Cris Judd
In July 2002, Jennifer and Ben were spotted kissing at J.Lo's surprise 32nd birthday party, marking the first appearance of the two being romantically linked. Two days later, J-Lo officially filed for divorce from her husband. Cris and the ‘If You Had My Love’ hitmaker had been separated for a month.
Ben starred in J-Lo’s music video
In late 2002, the ‘Argo’ actor starred in J.Lo’s ‘Jenny from the Block’ music video. The now iconic music video features a steamy moment between Bennifer.
They postpone their wedding
In September 2003, a day before their planned big day, the pair postponed their wedding. They released a statement saying: “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date. When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate “decoy brides” at three different locations, we realized that something was awry."
Bennifer is over!
On January 22, 2004, the two ended their engagement. J.Lo confirmed the sad news through her spokesperson: "I am confirming the report that Jennifer Lopez has ended her engagement to Ben Affleck, at this difficult time, we ask that you respect her privacy."
Jennifer and Marc Anthony wed
On June 5, 2004, J.Lo married Latin music star Marc Anthony, with whom she now shares two children, twins Emme and Max, who were born in 2008. Lopez and Anthony separated in 2011 and divorced in 2014. In her 2014 book, ‘True Love’, she reflected on the turbulent period between announcing her split from Ben and marrying Anthony: “I sought out comfort in another person, tried to find someone who could make me feel loved and wanted in my loneliest hour. … Marc came back into my life three days after I should have been at the altar saying 'I do' to another man."
Ben marries Jennifer Garner
In 2005, Ben also decided to move on. He married actress Jennifer Garner and the new Hollywood couple welcomed three children together over the years: daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel Affleck. The couple ended up divorcing in 2018.
Jennifer calls it off with Alex Rodriguez
In April 2021, after J.Lo ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez and Ben split from actress Ana de Armas, the two were spotted hanging out again. For Jen’s InStyle cover story, Ben spoke about her legacy. It was his first big public comment about her in years. “I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”
The source added: "[His] relationship [with Jennifer] ended a while ago — he’s made peace with how things ended. He respects her and truly wishes her nothing but the best.”
The best actors of Irish descent
Ireland is thought of as the home of leprechauns, four-leaf clovers, Guinness, and no snakes. It’s also the home, or at least the former home, of many a fine actor.
Last week, Alex reflected on their relationship fondly and revealed they continue to do what they can for the benefit of their kids, including his daughters Natasha, 17, and Ella, 14, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis, and Jennifer's twins Max and Emma, 14, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
He said: “Look, we had a great time. More importantly, we always put the kids front and center in everything we do...
"Here’s what I will tell you about Jennifer, and I was telling some of my colleagues here the other day, she’s the most talented human being I’ve ever been around.
“Hardest worker. And I think she is the greatest live performer in the world today that’s alive.”
Meanwhile, J-Lo has shared details of her wedding at the Little White Chapel in Sin City with her fans, and admitted it was "exactly" what they wanted.
She said: "Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world...
"So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives.”
