Nick Cannon has a new girl, but he wants ex-wife and baby mama Mariah Carey’s approval before he makes a proposal!

The “America’s Got Talent” host is ready to commit to former TLC singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, 45 — but ONLY if he’s sure things with Mariah are completely over!

And to complicate things, Mariah’s own engagement to billionaire James Packer is also reportedly finished!

Nick, 36, still loves Mariah, and part of him thinks she would want him back if he married someone else, according to an insider.

“But he ALSO wants to be sure Mariah would be OK with Chilli spending time with their kids, to avoid a custody battle of any kind,” said the source.

“If Mariah gives Chilli the thumbs down, Nick would likely end things with her!”
