Nick Cannon’s ex Alyssa Scott has opened up about her ‘pain’ as he confirmed he is expecting his eighth child weeks after their son’s death.
The Wild N Out host announced on his talk show that he is indeed having a baby with Bre Tiesi after photos emerged of them celebrating the news at a baby shower.
It comes after Nick’s child with Alyssa, a baby boy named Zen, died on December 5 at just five months old due to a brain tumour.
As Nick confirmed his latest baby news, Alyssa wrote in an Instagram post: ‘I want to thank every single person who has messaged or thought of me over the course of these last few months. I always say Zen expanded my heart in ways I never thought possible. He filled that space with compassion, knowing I would need that most.’
The model then stated: ‘It is painful having my son be a part of conversations that aren’t in alignment with his light and legacy. It isn’t something I chose for him or myself.
‘It’s important for me to let you all know.. I am centered, I am at peace. I look at everyone’s predicament with loving eyes. I will not judge. I will consciously decide what I will participate in. I am surrounded by love. God, my mom, dad, sister, brother, and daughter continue to carry me.’
In her Instagram stories, Alyssa shared further light on the timeline of Zen’s terminal illness, and said: ‘We knew since August that Zens time on this earth would be limited. We knew he would not make it to see 6 months. I am eternally grateful he was in the arms of the people who loved him most.
‘I know we were fully present and with him in these moments. We love you Zen. We got you down here baby boy.’
Nick, 41, revealed on his talk show on Monday that he is having his eighth child with Bre, an influencer and real estate agent.
