Nick Cannon is a big fan of his co-parenting schedule with LaNisha Cole.

On a recent episode of The Jason Lee Podcast, The Masked Singer host, 42, revealed that out of all of his children, daughter Onyx Ice, 8 months, is "probably the child that I spend the most time with."

"I'm with her at least three times a week, for the full day. But I don't put that out there in the media, social media [because] it's not for them," the Wild N'Out host leveled.

Cannon was proud to report, "LaNisha and I have a super strong understanding and our co-parenting operation is so solid."

The multi-hyphenate went on to explain that the two abide by a schedule that works for them for the time being.

"If you see me on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, my daughter is right next to me, whether I'm on set," he said of Onyx.

"I got a nursery in my office. I'm literally gonna leave here to make sure that I can spend the most time with her—not against all my other kids because all my other kids, they're in school, they're babies, as well as Onyx — but the fact that I appreciate that LaNisha gives me the respect enough to allow me to have, really, as equal amount of time as she does."
