Nick also said that he knew about Bre’s pregnancy before his five-month-old son Zen died tragically in December 2021. «So even while I was going through all of that, I kept thinking to myself, ‘What is the perfect time?'» ‘How can I make this public?’ According to People, Nick explained. «No one, we weren’t expecting Zen to die.» «Everything was very unexpected.» Bre was gracious enough to hold off on publicizing our announcements and speaking on social media in order to honor Alyssa [Scott’s] grief process.

Nick’s upcoming baby boy will be his eighth child overall, as previously stated. Zen was born in June 2021, just 9 days after Nick and his ex-girlfriend Abby De La Rosa welcomed his twins, Zion and Zillion. With ex-wife Mariah Carey, he has 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, as well as a son, Golden, 4, and a daughter, Powerful, 1, with Brittany Bell.

Nick originally addressed Zen’s death on The Nick Cannon Show on December 7, breaking down in tears as he said he was allowed to be with Zen on his final day before the 5-month-old died of a brain tumor. In honor of his late infant boy, the Masked Singer host got a tattoo.
