Nick Cannon paid tribute to his late son Zen on Sunday (Jan. 21) in a sweet Instagram post honoring the child who died in Dec. 2021 at five months old due to an aggressive form of brain cancer.


“Zen’s Light and presence shining over little miss Halo and Mommy and Daddy!,” Cannon wrote alongside a sunset beach video of the multi-hyphenate media star kissing daughter Halo Marie Cannon, alongside both children’s mother, model Alyssa Scott. “What a beautiful day to remind us all that there is a higher power and God’s Energy and frequency to keep us all going under his grace and mercy even in the midst of challenges,” Cannon added.

The Masked Singer host Cannon is father to 12 children, the eldest of which are his twins with ex, Mariah Carey, Moroccan and Monroe, who were born on April 30, 2011 during Cannon’s eight-year marriage to the pop icon.

Cannon’s seventh child, Zen Cannon, was born on June 23, 2021 and died five months later from brain cancer. The actor/musician said the couple had had an exciting summer with their newborn, but soon noticed that the little boy seemed to have a “sinus thing” as well as a “nice-sized head,” joking about his own “Cabbage Patch Kid head.”

The concerned father then revealed at the time on The Nick Cannon Show that things began to get more serious around Thanksgiving, with the tumor growing rapidly. “This weekend I made a valiant effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. … We woke up on Sunday and I was like, ‘I feel like I want to go to the water, be close to the ocean.’ … Holding my son for the last time, it was a beautiful setting,” he said.

“[God] puts the most and heaviest weight on the shoulders of his strongest soldiers, so I’m here to show that I can fight through this,” Cannon concluded. “I’m feeling it, I’m vulnerable, I’m open, but I’m going to make it through. This is a special show dedicated to my beautiful son Z.”
