He was very open about wanting lots of kids and explained that he was going to teach his daughter not to listen to other people’s opinions.
“I hope I can teach Onyx the same, so as not to let others shame or ridicule her with their outward opinions, because when they do, they are only projecting their own difficult experiences, their pain and their social programming about her spotless beauty,” he wrote. “As we all know, I’m not easily triggered and I’m pretty tough-skinned and I’ve always been an open book, but not everyone in my family has the same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism onto ME and not onto the loving and precious mothers of my children.

She is so loving and pure in heart. As for me, if you are really concerned during this time of spiritual warfare, my inner struggles with myself, my mental well-being and my physical health issues… Just keep praying for me and my entire family that God will grant a peace that passes all understanding. 🙏🏾❤️”
Yesterday, de la Rosa opened up about his “open relationship” with Cannon. “Being in a polyamorous relationship doesn’t mean you have low self-esteem or low self-esteem,” she said on the Lovers and Friends podcast, by PEOPLE.
“I get hypersensitive when people attack me and my motherhood,” she continued, adding, “The fact that I’m open in my relationship doesn’t change or take anything away from the type of mother I am for my children and the fullness that I am for them and the strength that I share with them.
She also said she hopes her children grow up to understand her unique relationship with Cannon.
“I’m thrilled that my kids are growing up and thinking, ‘Mom and Dad, you all did it your way and I love it,'” she said. “I hope my kids can eventually do it their own way, whatever their ability. Do it their way, not the way the world wants them to do…do it their way like mom and dad did.
