Kidney-scare Cannon '100% healthy'

Nick Cannon said he had now fully recovered from a form of mild kidney failure and attributed his improved health to a change in diet.

"This is a great place to get back and debut the healthy Nick," the actor and comedian said during a break as the host of NBC's Super Bowl pre-game show.

"Everybody's out here having a good time, and you know people were worried like, 'Is he going to be able to do the Super Bowl pre-show?' But I am 100% feeling good right now."

Cannon, 31, who was rushed to hospital last month, has had to change his diet, but says he does not eat the same food as wife, singer Mariah Carey, who recently lost weight after giving birth to their twins Moroccan and Monroe.

"I used to be a fast-food junkie," Cannon said. "She gets to have higher protein, which isn't fair because I love my steaks and I can't eat that anymore. Her carbs are lower so we are both on a diet, but it is different."

Cannon, who is a New York Giants fan, attended various events in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.

While his family was not with him, they were not far from his mind. When asked if he'd like to expand his brood one day, he laughed and said: "I would love to have more children. Now my wife on the other hand, I think the twins took a toll on her. She is like, 'I ain't doing that again'."
