Nick Cannon’s family continues to expand.

Model Alyssa Scott took to Instagram on Thursday to share that she and Cannon welcomed their second child. “HAPPY BABY,” she wrote before revealing that the baby was born on December 14.

In a separate Instagram post, Scott mentioned his late child with TV host Zen, who died in 2021 after battling brain cancer.

“Zen is in my every breath,” Scott wrote. “I know his spirit was with us in the room that morning. I know he is watching us closely, he shows me signs every day. I will keep this memory forever.”

“I’ll remember Nix’s voice saying, ‘It’s a girl,’ and everything we’ve been through shining on her face,” he continued.

“I will remember the sound of her crying with her first breath and feeling her heartbeat against mine. My sweet girl, I got my surprise. We love you Halo Marie Cannon.” Scott concluded the caption of his video by announcing the birth of his daughter.

In November, Cannon announced the birth of his eleventh child, daughter Zeppelin Cannon, with Abby De La Rosa.

At the time, she shared a message on Instagram to De La Rosa and her newborn daughter, writing: “You are the definition of steadfast and virtuous, and it is my continuing duty to make you and our children feel valued and protected every day. BEAUTIFUL ZEPELIN: BZC: BIZZY B! Get ready because the world is yours! Daddy loves you.”

Cannon and De La Rosa are also parents to Zion and Zillion, 18 months.

Cannon also shares twins Monroe and Moroka, 11, with ex-wife Mariah Carey.

Cannon has three children with Brittany Bell: Golden, 5, Mighty, 18 months, and Rhys, 1 month.

She welcomed her first child with Lanisha Cole, daughter Onyx, in September, legendary romance with Brie Tiezi in July.


The birth of Cannon’s 12th child comes nearly a year after the death of his seventh child. Zen died on December 5, 2021 at just five months old.

“Oh my sweet Zen! The pain I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away. It’s a painful reminder that you’ve been gone for a long time,” Scott wrote on Instagram in December 2021.


“I caught myself looking in the backseat as I drove, only to see that the mirror no longer reflected your perfect face back at me. As I close the door too loudly, I hold my breath and cringe, knowing that soon there will be a soft cry. Don’t come. The silence is deafening.

Scott continued: unbearable running without you now, I can’t.’
