NEW YORK, NEW YORK - MAY 16: Nick Cannon attends 2022 Fox Upfront on May 16, 2022 in New York City.

Alyssa Scott has a baby on the way!

The model took to Instagram to post maternity photos featuring her daughter, Zeela. Zeela is Scott’s daughter from a previous relationship. Entertainment Tonight confirmed that Cannon is the father of the baby Scott is expecting.

“With you by my side…,” Scott captioned the photo.


The baby news comes nearly a year after the death of her and Cannon's son, Zen. In December 2021, Cannon announced on his since-canceled daytime talk show that 5-month-old Zen died of brain cancer and a subsequent tumor. Zen was Cannon’s seventh child. Earlier this year, Cannon and Scott announced Zen’s Light Foundation.

“June 23rd will forever be a day of celebration,” Cannon wrote of his late son’s birthday. “A beautiful lighting ceremony to honor the life of an Angel. Zen’s birth has now transformed into ‘Zen’s Light’. We are proud to announce his new foundation that will help so many others in this world. ‘Zen’s Light’ mission is to foster global excellence in hope, grief-care, and pediatric healthcare for families and children in need. Thank you for everyone who joined us at this inaugural event, specifically the Children’s Hospital of Orange County and our other beautiful partners. Can’t wait for next year where our Lighting Gala will continue grow to help find a cure for pediatric Cancer, further research and help console more families during difficult times.”

Cannon is also the father to twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey. The Cannon crew also includes Golden Sagon, Powerful Queen and Rise Messiah with Brittany Bell, twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa, who is currently pregnant, son Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi and daughter Onyx with LaNisha Cole.
