Nick Cannon and model Alyssa Scott have announced the birth of their child, Cannon’s 12th child. The announcement was made on Scott’s Instagram account on Dec. 29, revealing that the baby was a girl and had been born two weeks earlier.
“December 14 2022. Our lives are forever changed ❤️,” Scott wrote in the announcement post.
“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. I will remember the sound of her crying out with her first breath and feeling her heartbeat against mine. My sweet girl, I got my surprise!! We love you Halo Marie Cannon! 🤍”
This is the second child for Cannon and Scott, who are also parents to Zane, who died of brain cancer in December 2021 at the age of 5 months.
“Zayn is in every breath I take. I know his spirit was in the room with us this morning,” Scott included in the caption, a tribute to her late son. “I know he cares for us. He shows me signs every day.” … I will cherish that memory forever.”
Cannon is also the father of ten other children with five other wives. Scott also has a 4-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
The Masked Singer host is the father of 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, and three children with DJ Abby De La Rosa – twins Zion Mixsolidian and Zillion Wraith Jamila, 1-year-old, who they met the couple on March 11, 2022 welcome.
Cannon also has three children with former Miss Arizona USA Brittany Bell: a son named Golden Sagun, 5, a daughter named Strong Queen, 1, and a baby boy named Rise Christ, who they welcomed on Sept. 23, 2022.
Their son was born in July 2022 to “Selling Sunset” star Bree Teezy, the legendary love interest. Cannon also had a daughter, Onyx Ice Cole, with photographer Laanisha Cole in September 2022.
In November, Cannon spoke to Billboard News about her large, unconventional family, saying she had “no idea” if she was going to have kids after baby number 12, but said, “I think I’m fine now!”
