Moroccan is the twin brother of Monroe and Nick’s first son. Unlike his sister, he has a middle name that he shares with his dad Nick. Moroccan’s middle name is a reference to Nick’s grandmother‘s maiden name.
The nickname of Moroccan is Roc, which comes from the Moroccan decor in the apartment where Nick proposed to Mariah back in 2008. In an interaction with Us in 2018, Nick talked about his son and said “His reading level is, like, 4th-grade reading level and he’s just 6.”

Nick had all good things to say about his baby mama Alyssa and he further added, “Alyssa was the strongest woman I’ve ever seen… [She] was always the best mom and continues to be the best mom possible.”
What did Nick have to say about having so many kids?
While making an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Nick Cannon was asked “why he had so many kids” and “why so many mothers”? to which he replied, “The idea that a man should have one woman…we shouldn’t have anything.”
Nick went on to say, “I have no ownership over this person. It’s about what exchange we can create together. So, I’ve never really subscribed to that mentality. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers. We created a beautiful entity…”
Cannon concluded by saying, “Those women, all women, are the ones that open themselves up and say ‘I would like to allow this man in my world. And I will birth this child.’ It ain’t my decision. I’m following suit. Every woman that I deal with or dealt with, they know how I feel.”
