[With Father's Day shining light on dads all across the world, Nick Cannon speaks on embracing fatherhood and his family's indecision to introduce the fans to their newborn twins.]
I'm loving fatherhood. It's changed my life for the better in so many ways. I just can't wait to do more. I think I'm at that stage where I'm anxious to be a father and obviously my children are still infants. So with Father's Day and everything else going on, I just look forward to a new journey every day.
Family is coming through. My mom and pops have definitely been around. I have a 91 year-old great grandmother that I have and need my children to meet. So it's been stuff like that as of late and really trying to set things up to get the family thing going.
For Father's Day, I really don't have nothing planned. I'm probably going to end up working and people who know me, they know I gotta do something that relates to business.
I don't know when I'm going to show off my kids. It's one of those things where it's been kind of an inner struggle we've been having to see when is the right time and how to go about it. We thought about sending out some TwitPics, the Ustream, there's a lot of people that want to do an interview and have a little sit down. So we're really just trying to figure it out.
We're really not focused on when do we show the babies to the world if at all. My wife and I kind of knew what we signed up for when we got into entertainment but our kids didn't so you gotta really take that into consideration. You have to think if that's even something they would want to be involved in looking back years from now. I don't want to ever seem like we're pimping our kids out.
