Alyssa Scott Reacts After Nick Cannon Announces He’s Expecting Eighth Child, Just Months After Their Infant Son Died

Nick Cannon has confirmed he’s expecting his eight child, just months after he and Alyssa Scott’s five-month-old son Zen died of a brain tumor. 

Nick announced the news on Monday’s episode of The Nick Cannon Show, Today reports, confirming he and Bre Tiesi are expecting a boy– their first child together. 

After Nick’s announcement, Alyssa posted a statement to her Instagram, writing that she “will not judge” and that she does not appreciate Zen being brought up in conversations about Nick’s newest child.

“It’s a boy! We found out yesterday,” Nick said while showing viewers a photo taken at the gender reveal. “Everyone knows I have a lot of children. It’s never a competition. Each one is special.” 

As The Ashley previously told you, Nick and Alyssa welcomed baby Zen in July 2021, just weeks after Nick’s fifth and six children–- twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, whom he shares with Abby De La Rosa–- were born. He also shares daughter Powerful Queen and son Golden with Brittany Bell, and twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey. 

Following Nick’s latest baby announcement, Alyssa shared a post on Instagram assuring followers she was “at peace” in the wake of her son’s passing, and the news of Nick’s eighth child.

“ … It is painful having my son be a part of conversations that aren’t in alignment with his light and legacy,” she wrote. “It isn’t something I chose for him or myself. It’s important for me to let you all know.. I am centered, I am at peace.

“I look at everyone’s predicament with loving eyes,” she continued. “I will not judge. I will consciously decide what I will participate in.”

She then wrote that she has been getting through her grief thanks to her family and God. (She did not mention Nick, though.)

“I am surrounded by love. God, my mom, dad, sister, brother, and daughter continue to carry me,” Alyssa wrote.

Nick also spoke about Alyssa and Zen on Monday’s show, telling viewers he questioned when would be the right time to share the news of Bre’s pregnancy, which he claimed to have known about prior to Zen’s passing. 

“I wanted to definitely respect the grieving process with Alyssa, and Bre was respectful enough– she held off making our announcements and speaking on social media,” he said. “She’s a very, you know, in the public eye type of person, but keeps her stuff private as well.

“And it was just one of those things like, you know, I didn’t know what to do,” he continued. “I didn’t know what to say when I was dealing with Zen or to hold off. Even right now, that it came out yesterday, that wasn’t planned to talk about it. We wanted to, you know, hold on as long as we can, but it happened. We here and I’m with my family, I get to discuss it, I get to be open.” 

In an Instagram Stories post, Bre wrote that she was “horrified” when photos of their gender reveal party were posted online.

“From the day I found out I was pregnant, I was over the moon excited and filled with joy. I am incredibly excited and eager to be a mommy. I purposefully kept my pregnancy private for various reasons.”

“…This was not how I’d hope to share this news especially given that I’ve been able to protect this news for almost my entire pregnancy.”

A post shared by Bre Tiesi (@bre_tiesi)

The news of Bre’s pregnancy comes after Nick declared in late 2021 that he was abstaining from sex until 2022. Nick caused a bit of controversy in November 2021 on his daytime show, The Nick Cannon Show, while playing a game of “Plead the Fifth” with guest Andy Cohen

During the game, Nick joked with Andy that his “favorite baby mama is the next one”– a comment he went on to clear up on Entertainment Tonight

“Everyone knows I’m crazy, everyone knows I say things that will get me in trouble,” he said. “At this point, if you’re in my life and don’t know that every day I’m going to say something out of pocket, you really don’t know me.”

In July 2021, JT of the rap duo City Girls appeared on the Nick Cannon Radio show and advised Nick to “wrap it up” to prevent having more kids. However, Nick assured JT that he is not accidentally knocking women up.

“I’m having these kids on purpose,” he said. “I’m not having them on accident…Trust me, there’s a lot of people I could’ve got pregnant that I didn’t. The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant.”

On Tuesday, he shared that his celibacy journey began after he found out that Bre was expecting his eighth child.

“My therapist was one of the [people] who said I should probably be celibate and the reason why is because I had shared that news about Bre being pregnant,” he said on his talk show. “That was the reason why I started my celibacy journey back then. So for anyone who’s thinking, ‘Oh he wasn’t celibate,’ I was!

“I felt like I was out of control and honestly, celibacy did help me through the journey of getting one with myself and being able to deal with this,” he added.

Nick says that he “almost” made it to 2022 being celibate, and that he’s no longer abstaining from sex. 

“I’m wild and now I put out, so where ya at, ladies?”

  1. Zen died from a brain tumor caused from hydrocephalus?

    Why didn’t they put a shunt in that poor baby’s head to prevent the brain tumor?!

    I’d be suing me some doctors if I were Alyssa!!

  2. Everyone else gets canceled but Nick Cannon hasn’t yet. I don’t get it.

    Please someone give this man a vasectomy already.

  3. I am sorry but Nick Cannon is Trash. He is DISGUSTING. And so are these women not only voluntarily sleeping with him, but having his children. Alyssa, in my opinion, is a class act (Maybe not by sleeping with him initially- I am saying she is a class act as far as this situation goes) and this says a lot “I am surrounded by love. God, my mom, dad, sister, brother, and daughter continue to carry me”. Like the article says- no mention of Nick and I think that needed to be said. He clearly has no compassion or really, care for this woman or his son that passed IMO and frankly, neither does Bre. There also doesn’t need to be all this public fanfare for a man’s 8-9th child- especially with the circumstances. It is a VERY fragile situation. Has he ever even been the title of “Boyfriend” to any of these women (besides Mariah)?! He needs to stay celibate for the sake of mankind.

  4. What is wrong with this man and these women? Are these women ready to be doing it all on their own, because now this man has more kids than there are days of the week.

    These poor children don’t deserve this.

    1. “Absolute grace”??? She slept with the guy yall are criticizing, along with 6-7 other women…oh yeah real grace. 🙄🙄🙄

      My heart goes out to her yeah sure, no parent should go through this but she’s obviously far from perfect.

        1. I commented positively to you talking about not questioning the mothers for being okay being single moms.

          You’re right everyone is condemning him for sticking his dingaling in all these women and knocking them up (which is wrong) but NO ONE is questioning the moms.

      1. She is absolute grace. No one is perfect and we’re all human. I hope if you ever go through hardships in life you won’t have someone judging you.

        1. I’m not judging her, just merely pointing out that she along with his other baby mamas are flawed too, not JUST him.

          I feel for her, I really do.

          And trust me, 10 surgery by the age of 18, a mom dying of cancer by the age of 14 and living with an alcoholic father as well as a drug/alcohol addicted sister…I’ve seen my share of hardships

          1. You ARE bitter and angry for no reason. The choices they make don’t have any impact on your life. Why tf do you care?? It’s their right to sleep with whoever they want. It’s their right to have kids. We don’t live in a country with limits to procreation, so he can have 80 kids and it still won’t matter.

            And why exactly does it matter if he has lupus? You say that like it’s some kind of std. You’re trying to turn damn near every comment into something about yourself. Instead of ranting here, try therapy.

            Clearly the Christian label that you love so much isn’t working for you because you’re being a piss poor example of Jesus. You’ve completely ruined the comment section of this blog for absolutely no reason. You need serious, professional help.

        2. I DON’T care what they do, but the point is their BOTH flawed, not JUST him…so stop making him out to be all bad and her to be some sort of saint.

          Yes, what she’s going through is bad and he should be supporting through it. But that’s obviously not the case, but who are we to judge that he’s a pos because he isn’t supporting her.

          Maybe he tried and she pushed him away, or maybe he’s like everyone says and never tried, we don’t know.

          Yeah I am angry and bitter, so what…thats my business…not yours. But don’t tell me I’ve NEVER gone through hardships because I have, that’s WHY I’m bitter and angry.

          And lupus is “some sort of std” in a way, at least to the offspring. It’s hereditary so the person is kind of taking a chance when sleeping with someone that has it that if you get knocked up you could be making your kid sick at some point.

          Thanks for the input Saoirse, now as my favorite movie says, “lick it, put a stamp on it and mail it to someone who gives a shit”

      2. Yup. ABSOLUTE GRACE. She just lost a child. She could be sitting here bitter and pissed that’s he’s having another kid right after losing one. She could feel like he’s trying to replace the son they lost. But she’s not. She is handling the situation way better than most people would.

        The article is about her reaction to a situation. I honestly don’t give a fuck what Nick does or how many kids he has because it has no impact on my existence. I think Alyssa is handling things beautifully and deserves peace.

        You’re such an ugly, bitter person for literally no reason. I really feel bad for you.

        1. People handle hardships differently, did you ever think that she’s handling this nicely because the twin Zillion Heir is still alive? Maybe she’s being selfish (thinking “oh yeah, I lost one but still got one”) and yall aren’t seeing it because you’re blinded with hate for him.

          And you’re a dick for calling me “bitter and ugly for literally no reason”. I have reasons, most of which I listed above. Yeah I’m bitter, and have every right to be.

          I’m trying to work past it but when I get called that it just reminds me why I HATE the majority of people.

          I mean really, calling a person that that you only know through a comment app, whose the bitter and ugly one…you are.

          I genuinely feel for her, but she’s guilty too. I mean, what did she think was gonna happen, she lays down with this dude(that has LUPUS), it’s hereditary. Her other son probably has it too and just hasn’t shown the signs yet.

          I predict that if she loses the other one she’ll pull the “oh woe is me” act.

          1. “Alyssa welcomed baby Zen in July 2021, just weeks after Nick’s fifth and six children–- twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, whom he shares with Abby De La Rosa–”

            Alyssa isn’t the ones with the twins. She has no other kids with Nick. So she won’t lose the other one.. because you aren’t even thinking of the right person.

          2. My bad, but all these women are wrong too, not just him.

            Give credit where credit is due, hate one hate both!!!

            That’s my point.

            Just because she’s handling it with grace IN FRONT of the cameras doesn’t mean she’s being graceful behind closed doors. She could be a total bitch.

            And the same goes for him, just because he’s being a prick IN FRONT of the cameras does mean he’s not suffering behind closed doors.

            He does have an image to uphold in public. This tough, gangsta, “don’t give a fuck” image.

          3. Oh, stop it. The womans baby died, stop ranting about your own life to justify saying horrible things about a grieving mother.

          4. I never said “horrible” things about her MONKEY, I feel for her, I really do.

            But nobody is 100% innocent or 100% guilty, nobody is perfect.

            And as far as I’m concerned, don’t sit there and call me bitter and ugly or tell me I haven’t experienced hardships because I have!!! You know NOTHING about me or anybody talked about on this site.

            You don’t like me and the way I express my opinion but so what, this world is full of likes/dislikes, get over it. I’m not here to impress you, nor you me.

  5. It almost seems like he thinks he is somehow proving he is a man because he impregnates multiple women. While he has the financial means to provide for his children (I don’t know if he is or isn’t) children need more than just financial support. How can you give each child everything that they need (like time) when there are so many children spread out between multiple women?

    My heart goes out to Alyssa. I would imagine that it is very difficult to process Nick’s announcement when she is still mourning the loss of her precious son.

  6. So he starts dating a woman, immediately impregnates her and then move on to the next one? Why does he want so many children? It’s obvious he can’t be a truly committed father of 8 children by 4/5 different women. He just can’t, it’s physically impossible.
    And what’s the deal with so many women being alright with this? They want to just be a single mother and receive child support, is that it?

  7. “It’s never a competition. Each one is special”

    Not really, babies are a big event in most families because they aren’t having multiple ones every year. After all the parties and attention wear off, these moms will be doing almost all the parenting and there’s no way Cannon can spend quality time with all of his kids at this point. I feel bad for all the kids dragged into this

    1. I don’t know what you were told in biology but he can’t have a child on his own.
      No idea why women want to be his baby mama. It probably has something to do with child support and the wish to have another child. Nobody in the right mind decides to have a child so early in a relationship when the man has never stayed long in any relationship unless there’s another benefit.
      When there are no women to facilitate his urge to procreate, he will stop having kids

      1. I agree with you and Regina. He should stop having kids, how are you going to be emotionally involved with kids with so many moms involved. And ladies, why do you want to have a child with this emotionally unavailable narcissist?

  8. I’m sorry for Alyssa. It must be awful to be mourning the horrible death of your baby, and to hear that the other parent of your child has long since moved on with someone else! Glad you’re getting a new replacement son, Nick!

    Nick Cannon is fucking disgusting!

  9. but didn’t he say like a month before zen’s passing that he was gonna take a break from having more kids 🤨 and why is no one questioning the mothers for being ok with being a single parent????

    1. I question the mothers.

      What kind of dumbass pickmeisha is lining up to be BM #7 with this ugly dude?

      Second, he isn’t wealthy enough to provide for these children throughout life. Mariah’s children will be fine bc she is also rich but these IG “models”? No.

      Third, he is not healthy. Lupus can be hereditary.

      Such awful mistakes these adults are making just to get a magazine cover or story written on The Ashley.
