*Nick Canon has a big heart and wants his children to grow up the same way.

The “America’s Got Talent” host made an appearance at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Awards Dinner recently, speaking on his own health and raising his children.

“I want [them] to grow up helping others.” It’s a lesson he learned by watching his grandmother who raised him. “We were low-income, but she was always taking in foster kids. She would help anyone, and it was a good lesson for me growing up.”

Nick was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that kept him in and out of hospitals for months.

He’s pretty well now, but had to take care of some dental issues.
