Another child could be on the way for Nick Cannon! Alyssa Scott has announced that she is pregnant with her third child. The singer welcomed her second child, son Zen, with Cannon last year, but unfortunately, the baby passed away just five months later due to brain cancer.
Scott announced her third pregnancy on social media but did not reveal if Nick Cannon is the father. If he turns out to be the dad, this would be the 12th child for the 42 year old actor and rapper.
Alyssa Scott Announces Pregnancy on Instagram
On Wednesday, the singer took to Instagram to share the happy news. She posted a photo flaunting her baby bump in a blue dress and captioned, “With you by my side… 🤍.” In the photo, Scott was seen carrying her four daughter year daughter Zeela, who she has from a previous relationship.
The 29 year old first sparked pregnancy rumors in May, when she posted a photo showing off her baby bump on Mother’s day and wrote, “Happy Mother’s Day 🤍 Today I’m grateful I was able to pick up the phone and hear my mom and grandmothers voice on the other line.”
“I’m grateful for my daughter who is holding my hand through this holiday. I mean it when I say my heart is with every woman and every mother today. Love,” she added. At the time, she did not reveal if the photo was current or throwback.
Scott and Cannon Lost Their Son Zen Last Year
Alyssa and Nick welcomed their baby Zen in June 2021 and announced his arrival with an Instagram post, writing, “I will love you for eternity 🖤6•23•21.” In December 2021, the couple announced the tragic news of their son’s passing.
“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,” Scott wrote at the time.
Cannon then stated how Scott was the ‘strongest woman’ he had ever seen. “Never had an argument, never was angry. She was emotional when she needed to be but was always the best mom and continues to be the best mom possible to Zeela,” he said.
This year in June, on Zen’s first birth anniversary, Alyssa and Nick launched a pediatric cancer foundation and named it Zen’s Light. “Our mission is to foster global excellence in hope, grief-care, and pediatric healthcare for families and children in need,” said Nick about the foundation.
