Nick Cannon responded to Jimmy Kimmel‘s jab at him and his 12 kids during the late-night host’s Oscars monologue.

Nick didn’t take the criticism too seriously and called Kimmel his “guy” in a quick interview with TMZ on Sunday night (March 12) in Beverly Hills.

“I heard about that,” Cannon said when asked about Kimmel’s joke. “It’s hilarious. I created Wild N’ Out — I can hear jokes all day long. Yeah, Kimmel’s my man.”

The interviewer then questioned Cannon about if he wanted to have a “cap on how many kids,” to which Cannon responded jokingly before closing the door of his Sprinter van.

Jimmy Kimmel turned Nick Cannon’s fertility into a comedy when it came to James Cameron’s high-budget blockbuster Avatar: The Way of Water being a smash at the box office.

“It’s the most expensive movie ever made. Disney spent $2 billion on this movie. Just to break even, all of Nick Cannon’s kids had to see Avatar four times,” Kimmel quipped, poking fun at his sizeable brood.

The twins he had with Mariah Carey in 2011 marked the start of the Wild N’ Out creator’s dozen, and over the next two years, he delivered another eight children with five different women (Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Bre Tiesi, LaNisha Cole and Alyssa Scott).

Nick Cannon is putting the future of his last kid count in God’s hands, so it doesn’t seem like he has any desire to stop having children.

“God decides when we’re done [laughs] but I believe I definitely got my hands full,” he told ET last month. “And I’m so focused. I’m locked in. But when I’m 85, you never know. I might.

“Everybody thinks it’s time management. It’s energy management,” he told ET. “[Because] once we’re all aligned, the flow is a lot easier. If there’s any kind of low frequencies or dissension in there that’s what messes up the scheduling.

“As long as we’re all on the same page and we all got the same goal — to be the best parents we could possibly be — that works and then the scheduling is the scheduling.”

In December, Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed their newest child. Halo Marie was born on December 14, and Scott shared a video of her birth on Instagram.

The video shows Cannon waiting anxiously in the delivery room for her to come. Shortly after she is placed in his arms, he exclaims, “It’s a girl!”
