Prior to the baby news, “The Masked Singer” host said that he was taking a vow of celibacy after advice from his therapist. However, he knew about Brie’s pregnancy before announcing his celibacy.
“So for anybody who was thinking, ‘Oh, he wasn’t celibate!’ I was!” he said on his talk show. “I was like, ‘Yo, I have to get my life under control because I felt like I was out of control.’ And honestly, that celibacy did help me through the journey of getting one with myself, being able to deal with this. So now everyone knows why I was actually being celibate.”
This is the latest gag in the comedians’ ongoing prank war. In September, Cannon broke into Hart’s airplane hangar and wrapped his private jet with a mural of Cannon’s face to promote his talk show. Nick also sent Kevin a llama for his birthday last summer.
