Nick Cannon has fathered a number of kids with a few different women. This year alone, he became father to three new babies, but tragically lost his youngest one in December. He announced the devastating news on December 7 while hosting 'The Nick Cannon Show'.

The comedian became the father of Zen Scott in June after 'Wild 'N Out' model Alyssa Scott delivered him. Around the same time, he also welcomed twin babies with another woman named Abby De La Rosa, which led to him being trolled online. But the latest development has left many feeling sympathetic about his loss. In a video shared on his Instagram page, Cannon revealed that Zen died on December 5 because of a brain tumor.

Describing the last few moments he spent with the five-month-old, Cannon said, “This weekend I made a valid effort to spend the most quality time I could spend with Zen. We woke up on Sunday — I got to spend the weekend with him — and I woke up on Sunday and was like, ‘I feel like I want to go to the water.’ We got a chance to go to the ocean.”
