There’s no rest for Nick Cannon.
The 36-year-old America’s Got Talent host spent Christmas at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center due to complications with lupus, but in a new Instagram video he posted on Thursday, he shared the good news that he’s been released. Cannon revealed he underwent five blood transfusions during his two-week hospital stay.
“Honestly, I feel great,” Cannon says, noting that he went straight to the studio upon his release. “We’re back at it again. … Five blood transfusions, what? Naw, it ain’t nothing.”
“Stay motivated, you can do anything,” he adds.
Keeping his upbeat attitude, he also jokes about his new beaded ‘do.
“I see what you’re talking about, making fun of my braids, saying I’m getting my Solange on … my Venus and Serena Williams.”
On Wednesday, Cannon let all his fans know that he was pumped for 2017 in another inspirational Instagram video. “I’ve just been sitting here, reflecting, and I can’t sit here dormant no more,” he said while lying down in a hospital bed. “I’m about to take it to the new level, a different stratosphere, a different mesosphere. I’m sitting here just getting stronger, just, like, Iron Man strong, Incredible Hulk type strong.”
“Nietzsche said, ‘What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger,'” he added. “We all are stronger because we made it through 2016, and we’re gonna keep going. One love.”
Cannon is certainly going to need his strength — he’s currently expecting a child with former girlfriend Brittany Bell.
“It’s outstanding,” Cannon told ET in November about his big baby news when we spoke with him at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris. “Honestly, they say even in unexpected situations, you still embrace the beauty of bringing a life into this world, because that is what life is all about.”
