“America’s Got Talent” host and jack of all trades Nick Cannon has told Confidenti@l how he’s learned to juggle many jobs, make time for diva wife Mariah Carey and be a dad to “dem babies,” 3-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Somehow, he said recently, he’s not exhausted.
“I’ve actually been to that phase where you overwork yourself, and had some serious health scares in 2012. Time management is key. Being able to put yourself first is key. You have to eat properly and make sure your diet is right. I feel even though I have a lot going on, it’s all structured in the right way now.”
In 2012, Cannon’s health hit rock bottom when he was hospitalized for kidney problems, heart problems and blood clots, which were the result of a lupus-type autoimmune disorder.
His kidney problems forced him to drop one of his many gigs at the time, a CBS radio show. Cannon, 33, noted that “even Superman has to sleep.”
Now, as he spends more time with family, Cannon has added Christmas book author to his résumé. He will release “Roc and Roe’s Twelve Days of Christmas” this fall with Scholastic.

“The book follows (Carey and Cannon’s twin babies) Roc and Roe as they put their own unique spin on the Christmas carol,” the publishing house said in a statement.
With his schedule now under control, Cannon tells us his habits of exercising, sleeping and eating right have him on the right track, and he feels better than ever.
“It’s great, it’s in top shape. Better shape than I have ever been before,” he told us.
As for his six-year marriage to Carey, Cannon says despite their busy schedules, the two always make time for each other.
“You just have to focus on each other and make that the priority first. Mariah and I are good,” he said.
