Alyssa Scott Announces She's Pregnant Following Death Of Her And Nick Cannon's 5-Month-Old Son

Congratulations are in order for Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott, who have announced that the model is pregnant. As fans will recall, Nick made the announcement in December of last year that he and Alyssa had lost their 5-month-old son, Zen.

Now, Alyssa is celebrating her pregnancy with her fans and followers. On Wednesday, the model took to social media to announce the news.

TW: This article contains discussions of infant loss and may be triggering to some readers.

As fans know, Nick Cannon is a father to 10 children.

"Every day I just wake up excited as a father," the Masked Singer host told People back in May. "I'm so excited about all my kids. Constantly, from every aspect of it. From them getting citizen of the month awards in the first grade to the birth of the new ones."

In December of 2021, Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott announced that their 5-month-old son Zen had passed away after battling a rare form of brain cancer, and Hydrocephalus.

As per Mayo Clinic, Hydrocephalus "is the buildup of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain. The excess fluid increases the size of the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain."

Alyssa, who is also mother to daughter Zeela, 5, took to Instagram at the time to express her grief.

"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," she continued. "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."

Now, congratulations are in order for both Alyssa and Nick as they welcome Alyssa's third child.

The mom shared a photo of her baby bump while holding Zeela (in matching blue outfits) and captioned the photo "with you by my side..."

It has been confirmed by ET that Nick is the father of the baby.

Congrats!
