In an interview with Variety, Nick Cannon revealed that his marriage to Mariah Carey worked because he let her be the star. He said, “My ego outside the house was grand but in the house it was healthy. I was there to be in support of whatever she wanted to do. I mean, it’s Mariah Carey. How am I supposed to be? She’s one of the most talented women to ever [sic] this planet. I can’t hold a candle to that woman.” He added, “I always used to say it worked so well because it was a healthy balance. I had no problem falling back. It was never a competition with me. It was like, ‘I’ll turn mine off so she can turn hers on.’ I was comfortable in myself and who I was.”

In other news, it looks like Nick has a second child on the way with Brittany Bell. Bell announced that she has another child on the way.
