Nick Cannon is reflecting on a missed opportunity to have a child.

While recently speaking with The Shade Room, the 42-year-old shared the one person he wishes he had kids with in the past is ex Christina Milian, his Love Don't Cost a Thing costar whom he dated for two years before they split in 2005.

"If I say this, I know it's gonna go viral. When Christina Milian and I were doing Love Don't Cost a Thing, I remember when I found out she was pregnant, I was like, 'Dang, man,' but I was so happy for her."

"I remember we were kids in love, early on, and so we talked about that," he added. "But to each his own. Life plans it out. The universe gives it how it's supposed to be given."

Last month, while chatting with Entertainment Tonight, the Masked Singer host was asked if he is done having babies after welcoming his 12th child, daughter Halo, in December.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah," Cannon told ET, though he added that more kids could still be in the cards.

"God decides when we're done, but I believe I definitely got my hands full," he said. "And I'm so focused. I'm locked in. But when I'm 85, you never know. I might."
