Alyssa Scott is reminiscing about her and Nick’s infant son Zen. On her Instagram Story, Scott recently unveiled a set of fresh images of her 5-month-old child, who passed away due to a brain tumor, reflecting on her moments with the youngster. Zen smiles as he sits in the car in the first shot while Scott cuddles with her child on the beach in the second. She also sent a cute video of Zen cooing and gazing up at his mother.
Scott writes, “I see you in everything beautiful.” Cannon subsequently shared a flashback picture of herself clutching her tummy when pregnant with Zen on Instagram, which she simply titled with a love emoji.
Cannon revealed his son’s demise on his eponymous television program in the following week, telling audiences, “Today is a beautiful day for a variety of reasons, but it will not be easy. I have not told anybody about this, not even the staff. I had a really trying weekend.”
Zen, his youngest kid, was referred to the doctor at the age of two months due to an enormous head, he added. According to Cannon, doctors noticed fluid in the baby’s skull and identified a cancerous tumor that required major surgery.
Zen was then operated on and given a stent to clear the fluid, making Scott and Cannon sense “faithful and hopeful” at the moment. However, the tumor started to develop around Christmas, and Cannon devoted as much “quality time” with his child as he could till the baby died on December 5.
Scott paid a heartfelt homage to Zen and her moments with him before his passing on Instagram in the following week. The video compilation is accompanied by Jhené Aiko’s tune “Promises,” and Scott wrote a meaningful note in the description.
She wrote, “Oh my sweet Zen. The soreness I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away. It’s a painful reminder that you are no longer here.” She further adds that as she is driving, she watches the back seat mirror was no longer reflecting his gorgeous face back at her. She holds her breath and cringes when she shut a door too loudly, knowing that a faint scream will soon follow. However, it does not appear, and it is deafeningly quiet.
Scott continued that they had been in a race together for the last five months. They would pass the baton from one person to the next. Zen was the one who kept her going. In the late night as well, Zen used to grin at her. Her body used to flood with energy, and pure bliss would emanate from her in those moments. “We were a team, both determined to see it through. It feels unbearable running without you now. I can’t.”
Since Zen’s demise, the model has been able to “feel” herself “being carried” by her 3-year-old daughter and the sympathy of others, who have been “encouraging me to not give up.” Scott concluded her tribute by saying it was an honor and pleasure to be the mother of Zen. “I will love you for eternity. 6*23*21 – 12*5*21.”
Cannon also has five children. He shares two children with Abby De La Rosa, 5-month-old twins Zillion Heir and Zion Mixolydian. He shares two children with Brittany Bell, namely daughter Powerful Queen (11-month-old) and son Golden (4-year-old). He shares two children with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
The Final Moments Of Zen
In a sad on-screen moment earlier this month, the Wild ‘N Out singer confirmed the infant’s death on his eponymous talk show. Nick shared further details of Zen’s last minutes before his terrible death due to hydrocephalus. Nick told People, “You could tell he was struggling.”
According to usmagazine, Zen was suffocating from lack of oxygen. They woke up and found Zen not breathing for five to ten seconds at a time before letting out a tremendous gasp. He further said, “You could see it frightened him. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced.”
Zen was identified with high-grade glioma, an uncommon and dangerous type of brain cancer, only two months after his delivery. The couple’s conversations swiftly turned to his “quality of life,” according to the Masked Singer presenter, since they did not want the kid to “suffer.”
“From someone who’s had to deal with chemotherapy before, I know that pain,” he said, reminiscing on his own fight with lupus. He did not want to watch that happen to a 2-month-old. He did not want him to be in pain. Nick went on to explain that the loss had “shattered” his “heart.” Nick wishes he could spend more time with him and snap more photographs with Zen. He wished he could have embraced Zen for a longer period of time.
Mother In Mourning
Alyssa was seen for the first day following her son’s death over the weekend. The model was spotted trying to pick up coffee and dropped her daughter Zeela at a preschool in Chico, California, in exclusive photographs acquired by The Sun.
While she grieves the death of Zen, the mother has been living with her parents, Alex and Lisa, at their house in Northern California.
However, Nick has started working on his daytime talk program, where he disclosed that he had gotten a tattoo honoring the kid on his rib.
