“I think my mindset is number one, I have to make sure the family is okay,” he told the outlet. “As long as all my kids are healthy and we’re fine. I can’t do next season because of pregnancy.”

The “Ex on the Beach” star told E! News that he plans to return to the show in the near future with an eye on the prize.
“I love doing the show. It gets me energized and I want to come back,” he told the publication. “I think my big return – MTV, you hear that? – Season 40 for $2 million in prize money. I win. What better story? Cory comes back with three kids. He always takes second place. Now he wins a million. I will definitely come again.”
