Nick Cannon is officially the father of a dozen. The American TV star welcomed his 12th child with model, Alyssa Scott, on December 14, 2022.
Alyssa and Nick are parents to the late Zen Cannon, who died from brain cancer in December 2021, five months after he was born.
The model announced via her Instagram page on Thursday that they had welcomed a baby girl, Halo Marie Cannon, earlier in the month.
In the post, Scott shared a montage that featured herself and Nick in the labour room where their daughter was born.
“December 14, 2022. Our lives are forever changed ” Scott captioned the video.
She added, “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. He shows me signs every day. I will hold onto this memory forever.
“I will remember the sound of Nick’s voice saying ‘it’s a girl’ and the look of everything we’ve been through flash across his face. I will remember the sound of her crying out with her first breath and feeling her heartbeat against mine. My sweet girl, I got my surprise!! We love you Halo Marie Cannon!”
Cannon most recently welcomed a daughter, Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, with disk jockey, Abbey De La Rosa, in November. Rosa and Nick already share 15-months-old twins, Zion and Zillion.
The Wild ‘N’ Out star is also the father to another set of twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 11, whom he had with ex-wife, Mariah Carey.
Model, Britney Bell, is mother to his sons, five-year-old Golden Sagon, three-month-old Rise Messiah, and daughter, Powerful Queen, 2.
Cannon’s son with Bre Tiesi, Legendary, was born in January of this year. He also welcomed a daughter, Onyx Ice Cole with model, LaNisha Cole in September.
