Golden Cannon is the son of well-known Hollywood actor, TV host, and rapper Nick Cannon. The 5-year-old is so smart that he's already started 2nd grade.


Golden Cannon might be just five years old, but he's already making his parents proud. At his age, the little boy already goes to 2nd grade, which he started on August 29, 2022.

His dad Nick Cannon, who shares him with Brittany Bell, was more than happy to share the great news on social media as he took to his Instagram page to post about it.


The TV host shared a back-to-school picture of his son wearing a navy blue T-shirt and jacket with khaki pants while carrying a backpack. Golden is holding a sign in the photo which says it's his first day of 2nd grade, and he's five years old.

The sign also has the date and his teacher's name and says what he wants to be when he grows up. His dad captioned the image by saying, "Mr. Golden Cannon" had his first day in 2nd grade and that he's only 5.

The proud dad further said credit should be given to Golden's mother and wrote, "Congratulations, Champ!! I can't take none of the credit, though! He gets his genius from his Mamma! @missbbell."


Golden Cannon Wants to Be a Scientist When He Grows Up

Golden "Sagon" Cannon was born on February 21, 2017, and is a Pisces. His parents announced his arrival by sharing a photo on Instagram. Nick posted a black and white image of himself cradling Golden and captioned it by quoting a Bible verse and expressing how "God always reminds us of our purpose!"

The baby shower for Golden's mother, Brittany Bell, took place a few weeks before Golden's arrival on February 9. She had a celestial-themed baby shower, and Nick shared a picture of him and Brittany on Instagram expressing his love for her and their then-unborn baby.


Golden is a Black Panther fan and had a Black Panther-themed party for his fifth birthday in February 2022. He wore a Black Panther outfit, and so did his father, mother, and sister.

His birthday party had a lot of cool stuff like a light-up dance floor, ball pit, glow paint station, a "Wakanda Forever" birthday cake, and more. The 5-year-old is also a fan of The Thundermans.


He seems to do well in school, and his mom shared a post in April 2021 revealing the grades Golden skipped.

She said Golden has "a gift for learning" and has skipped preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten and went straight to 1st grade. According to his mom, he has a balance between cognitive and emotional skills.


The intelligent little boy even knows what he wants to be when he grows. Golden revealed that he wants to be a scientist, but his mother said in a post in August 2021 that he wanted to be "everything." Golden is learning Mandarin and a post shared by his mom on Instagram showed his progress.

The 5-year-old seems to love sports and went to the batting cages for the first time in July 2022. His dad shared a video of him there on his Instagram. Golden's dad also revealed through a post that the 5-year-old plays baseball.
