Nick Cannon is staying lighthearted about his ex-wife Mariah Carey's engagement to billionaire James Packer.

The 35-year-old simultaneously joked about Mimi's reported $10 million 35-carat diamond ring and offered the couple his congratulations.

The America's Got Talent host shared a picture of himself in a hospital bed with comedian Kevin Hart standing over him with the caption, “It’s just a ring Nick…..”

He then added: “Ha! This made me laugh out loud for real!!! HILARIOUS! #AllLove Congrats to @MariahCarey and James! May God Bless Your Future Union… #GreatPeople #GreatCouple.”



On Thursday it was revealed that the Glitter star and Packer, her boyfriend of seven months, had gotten engaged. This will be the third marriage for  both.

Nick and Mariah were married for six years before splitting in 2014. They share custody of four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

Earlier this month, Cannon said he "highly doubts" he'll ever walk down the aisle again.

"I feel like marriage isn’t for everyone," he told DuJour magazine. "A friend of mine put it the funniest way. He said, ‘If you heard that there was a 50/50 chance of living or dying when you jump out of a plane, you probably wouldn’t go skydiving.'”
