Sadly it has been recently reported that Alyssa Scott and Nick Cannon, lost their beautiful baby boy Zen.
According to US Magazine:
The 5-month-old was born in June 2021, and his parents noticed a couple of months after his arrival that he had a “sinus thing … like, a cough” and had an “interesting” way of breathing.
“I really wanted to take him to the doctor to get the breathing and sinus checked out,” the Nick Cannon Show host told his audience in December 2021.
“So we thought it would be a routine process. And we went in just to check his sinuses, and they actually said his sinuses were pretty cool, but by the time we found out that, he had another condition.
And I think it was called, if I’m not mistaken, fluid that was building up in his head, and that was the cause [of] his head starting to get big. When we found out it was more, they called it a malignant tumor in his head. Immediately, he had to have surgery. Brain surgery.”
The little one’s health took a turn for the worse in November 2021, and the All That alum held Zen for the last time during a family beach trip.
In a beautiful Tribute, Alyssa wrote a beautiful tribute to her son.
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.
I caught myself looking in the backseat as I was driving only to see the mirror no longer reflecting your perfect face back at me. When I close a door too loudly I hold my breath and wince knowing a soft cry will shortly follow. It doesn’t come. The silence is deafening.
These last 5 months we have been in this race together. We would hand the baton off to each other. You kept me going. It would be the middle of the night and you would smile at me.
A surge of energy would fill my body and pure joy would radiate from within me. We were a team, both determined to see it through. It feels unbearable running without you now. I can’t. And in this moment I feel myself being carried. By your sister.. By God. By complete strangers encouraging me to not give up .
It has been an honor and privilege being your mommy.. I will love you for eternity. 6•23•21 – 12•5•21
