Nick Cannon will "always be family" with Mariah Carey.
The 'America's Got Talent' host - who split from the 'When You Believe' hitmaker last year - insists the pair will always be close for the sake of their four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
He shared: "It's all about unconditional love. And knowing because they were so young, this is what they know: They know Mommy and Daddy still love each other, but more importantly they love us. It's family. We'll always be family."
The 35-year-old star also revealed he'd love to meet Mariah's boyfriend, billionaire James Packer, one day.
Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he added: "I think that would be cool."
Meanwhile, Nick previously insisted the 46-year-old singer is the "love of [his] life".
He said: "It's one of those things, I'm a hopeless romantic too.
Through this learning process, you never say never. To me one thing I know, that will always be the love of my life, always be my family and that's never going to change.
"It's extremely disappointing when you see that people just want to perpetuate negativity when there is no negativity even involved."
