Zeddy Will may be taking cues from prolific baby-maker Nick Cannon.

On Jan. 14, the 22-year-old “Cha Cha” rapper hosted a joint baby shower for all five of his baby mamas. Yes, you read that right: five. A now-viral video shows the TikToker-turned-MC at the event, where he posed alongside the pregnant women, including recording artist Lizzy Ashliegh.

“When your baby daddy got 4 other girls pregnant at the same time!” Ashliegh wrote in an Instagram post, as pointed out by TMZ. “We decided to have a baby shower on the same day!”

Although it isn’t the most conventional family, Ashliegh made it clear that there was no drama between her and the other women: Bonnie B, Kay Merie, Jylene Vila, and Iyanla Kalifa Galletti

“We can’t change the fact that he’s our baby daddy and everything happens for a reason,” she wrote in a TikTok. “We’ve decided to work together and our families are supportive of our decision! We’ve accepted each other. It’s better for the little ones.”

There's no guaranteeing at this point that this story is completely legitimate, rather than a viral stunt. Zeddy indicated on TikTok—where he boasts 2.5 million followers—that his upcoming "Cha Cha" video might incorporate the baby shower:

That said, if it's a stunt, it's one that all five women are participating in on their own Instagram accounts.

Although Zeddy was not quoted by TMZ, his co-manager Shawn Prez released a statement defending the polyamorous lifestyle. 

“Society has shifted, and in turn so has modern relationship dynamics,” he said. “The essence lies in redefining relationships personally, breaking away from the one-size-fits-all approach and societal pressures to conform. Individuals should be allowed to craft relationships that align with their values, desires, boundaries, and aspirations. … Nick Cannon serves as a notable example of successful polyamory, highlighting that the definition of a relationship is a personal choice.”

Since 2011, Cannon has welcomed 12 kids with six different women, including Mariah Carey. The actor/TV host spoke about his large blended family in a 2022 interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, revealing he had a vasectomy consultation

“I don’t know if I would’ve designed it this way, but it’s one of those things when you’re blessed with the gifts of children—and as we all know, I’ve been through so much,” he said. “I find solace, I find peace in my children, and I find purpose. I already went and got my vasectomy consultation. I ain’t looking to populate the earth completely, but I’m definitely looking forward to taking care and loving all the children that I currently have.”
