Nick Cannon admits that he would be ready to walk down the aisle with Mariah Carey again years after the couple’s divorce.

The Masked Singer host revealed that he still has feelings for his ex-wife when he appeared on rapper T.I.’s podcast, ExpediTIously with Tip T.I. Harris, per Hollywood Life. In the interview, Cannon said that he doesn’t feel like monogamy is for him. Cannon followed his statement by clarifying that — while he is opposed to monogamy at the moment — he was completely committed to his relationship with Carey.

“I think I’ll never be able to be with just one woman again,” Cannon said. “I did it in marriage, I was very faithful in my marriage. The reason why we split up had nothing to do with infidelity, nothing like that.”

Cannon also said that he didn’t even believe in marriage for himself before he started dating Carey. However, Cannon explained that he wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to be with the “Shake It Off” songstress, referring to Carey as his “dream girl.”

“I gave it my all. Because even before that, I was like, ‘I don’t believe in marriage.’ But, sh*t, it was Mariah Carey,” Cannon said. “Whatever she say, I’m with it. If she wanted to say we was going to the moon, I’m like, ‘Let’s go.’ If I’mma marry somebody, I’mma marry her.”

When asked if he would marry the Grammy winner again, Cannon reportedly replied in a joking manner that if he decided to commit to another woman, it would be with Carey.

The Wild’N Out creator also shared that Carey is still “someone that I love.”

Cannon and Carey tied the knot back in 2008 at the “We Belong Together” singer’s estate in the Bahamas. In 2011, the pair became first-time parents and had twins — Moroccan and Monroe. Three years later, Cannon filed for divorce from Carey — though the star never shared why their relationship ended. The divorce was finalized in 2016.

During the interview, Cannon also referred to himself as a “hopeless romantic.” The Inquisitr previously reported that Cannon has been romantically linked to several famous women during his career. Some of the Love Don’t Cost a Thing actor’s most notable relationships — aside from Carey — include Christina Milian, Kim Kardashian and Brittany Bell.

Carey has also reportedly moved on from the marriage, as the legendary singer is rumored to be dating creative director Bryan Tanaka. In 2016, Carey was also previously engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer.
