All about Alyssa Scott, who welcomed a 2nd child with Nick Cannon

Scott called her daughter, Halo, a "blessing."

While announcing her pregnancy, model Alyssa Scott called her second child with Nick Cannon “a blessing” in the caption of an Instagram post.

Scott gave birth to a daughter, Halo Marie Cannon, on Dec. 14, 2022. Halo was born about a year after Scott and Cannon’s first child, Zen, died at the age of five months, having developed a malignant brain tumor as an infant. 

On Instagram, Scott shared that she believed her late son was present in the hospital room and beyond. “Zen is in every breath I take. I know his spirit was with us in the room that morning,” she wrote. “I know he is watching down on us, he shows me signs everyday. I will hold onto this memory forever.”

Halo is Scott’s third child. She also another daughter, Zeela, 4, from a previous relationship. Halo is Cannon’s 12th child.

Cannon is the father of sons Rise Messiah and Golden Sagon and daughter Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell. The “Masked Singer” host has three kids with Abby De La Rosa: twins Zion and Zillion and daughter Beautiful Zeppelin. He also shares twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey, son Legendary Love with Bre Tiesi and daughter Onyx Ice Cole with LaNisha Cole.

And died months later

On Dec. 5, 2021, Zen died at five months from a form of brain cancer, Cannon confirmed on his talk show. A day later, Scott posted on Instagram a tribute to her late son.

"These last 5 months we have been in this race together. We would hand the baton off to each other. 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," Scott captioned the post, in part.

In February 2022, Scott revealed a picture of her new tattoo on Instagram dedicated to her son. His name, Zen, is written down the back of her spine in small print.

Cannon also got a tattoo for his late son. In December 2021, on his show he revealed a picture of the tattoo which depicts Zen as an angel.

“This is a week where I’ve seen so much love, y’all, more love than I’ve probably ever experienced. So even in the midst of a loss, I’ve got to say thank you to y’all,” Cannon said on his show before holding up the picture of the tattoo.

"Our lives are forever changed," 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, he shows me signs everyday."

The post also contained an emotional video of Halo's birth, including the moment she learned she was having a girl.

"I will remember the sound of Nicks voice saying 'it’s a girl' and the look of everything we’ve been through flash across his face," Scott wrote. In the video, she calls her own mom to deliver the news.
