Nick Cannon’s family is about to get even bigger! The television host is set to welcome his 12th child with model Alyssa Scott. This newborn will be the second child the couple has had together.
Last week, Alyssa revealed that she was pregnant but it wasn’t until today that she confirmed the father of her child: Nick Cannon. Alyssa shared images from a photoshoot the couple took together that showcased her growing baby bump. “This is a MIRACLE & a BLESSING,” she wrote in the caption of the first post. The rapper welcomed his first child with Alyssa in 2021, a son named Zen. Sadly, Zen passed away at 5 months old from a malignant brain tumor. Alyssa has a 4-year-old daughter named Zeela from a previous relationship, and Zeela joined her mom in her post announcing her third pregnancy.
Alyssa did not reveal when she was due, so it is unclear whether this little one will arrive before the end of the year. Nick is expecting another baby due to arrive any day now (if the little one hasn’t been born already) with DJ Abby De La Rosa. Nick currently shares twins with Abby, sons Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir. This year, Nick has welcomed three other children with three different women. In June, he welcomed a son named Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi, a model. In September, he welcomed a daughter named Onyx Ice with model LaNisha Cole.
Most recently, the Masked Singer host welcomed his third child with Brittany Bell, the former Miss Arizona USA. The couple had a son named Rise Messiah. Nick and Brittany also share a son named Golden and a daughter named Powerful Queen. Nick first became a father in 2011 when he welcomed boy-girl twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe with his wife at the time, singer Mariah Carey.
Congratulations to Nick and Alyssa on the news of their pregnancy! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to grow the Cannon family.
