What is Nick Cannon preparing for that the rest of us don’t know about? The Masked Singer host has officially welcomed his fifth child of the year, a baby girl named Halo Marie Cannon with Alyssa Scott, bringing his total count to a dozen children.
Last December, Cannon and Scott’s five-month-old son Zen died after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. In an Instagram post announcing the Dec. 14 birth of their daughter, Scott wrote: “Zen is in every breath I take. I know his spirit was with us in the room that morning. I know he is watching down on us.”
The accompanying video shows Scott and Cannon in the delivery room earlier this month taking joyful selfies with their newborn rainbow baby, a label given to children born to a family that has lost a child during birth or infancy.
A week prior, Cannon shared a lengthy tribute to Zen on the first anniversary of his death. “Losing a child has to be the heaviest, most dark and depressive experiences that I will never get over,” he wrote. “A mixture of guilt, pain, and sorrow is what I suppress daily. I am far from perfect and often fall short and make decisions in my life that many question, but anyone who knows me knows my heart. I love hard, I love big and I love with my entire Heart and Soul and I just wish my Little Man could’ve felt more of that love while he was here on Earth.”
Along with Zen, Halo Marie joins Cannon’s other children, including 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with Mariah Carey; 20-month-old Powerful Queen, 3-month-old Rise Messiah, and 5-year-old Golden Saigon with Brittany Bell; 14-month-old twins Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa; 5-month-old Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi; and 3-month-old Onyx Ice with LaNisha Cole.
