Meeting the parents is a HUGE step.
So, things must be going really well with Nick Cannon and Chilli! The America's Got Talent host and the TLC alum fueled more dating speculation last week!
About a month ago, the 35-year-old admitted he's "not ready for titles" when asked about their rumored relationship. But now the comedian seems ready for a lot more than titles, since he's already hanging out with the singer's momma!

An eyewitness told People on Tuesday that the Wildin' Out star and the musician — whose real name is Rozonda Thomas — enjoyed a lovely dinner date with her mother, Ava, on Thursday.
According to the onlooker, the 45-year-old and her parent showed up to El Lay's ROKU at about 8 p.m., asking for a "relatively exclusive" table.
About 15 minutes later, Mariah Carey's ex arrived and join the lovely ladies. The source spilled:
"Nick was super engaged with Chilli and her mom and very animated. They were laughing and giggling and seemed to be telling lots of jokes."
Awwwww! Bonus points with mom is ALWAYS good in a new relationship!
The insider added that the fledgling flames were "very warm" toward each other. The confidante also revealed to the mag that the precious pair enjoyed yellowtail sashimi, spicy tuna on crispy rice, and baked crab hand rolls.
The witness revealed the California native had a couple cocktails, but Chilli didn't indulge in any alcohol. They all left the restaurant around 9:30 p.m.
We're so happy things are going well! We really think Nick deserves to move on and be happy!
