In the famous words of DJ Khaled, “Anotha one!”
Nick Cannon recently welcomed his twelfth child, Halo Marie Cannon. The baby girl is his second kid with Alyssa Scott, who welcomed a son named Zen back in June 2021.
Nick Cannon Welcomed His Twelfth Child On December 14
An onscreen quote from Dr. Jaiya John was included, which read, “Grief is the love inside you shedding its skin, becoming a new form of love.”
Viewers can then see Alyssa happily flaunting her baby-bump and showing off ultrasound photos. Shortly thereafter, the video flashes to Alyssa and Nick in the hospital, where we see their daughter being born.
“It’s a girl,” Nick excitedly announces while holding the newborn in his hands. Alyssa then expresses her joyful surprise and holds her baby in her arms before they all pose together.
Alyssa also revealed that Halo Marie—her “sweet surprise”—was born back on Dec. 14. So, while Capricorn SZN is now underway, Nick and Alyssa’s daughter was born under a Sagittarius sun.
Halo Marie Was Born Just Over A Year After Nick Announced Zen’s Passing
The timing of Halo Marie’s birth also puts her arrival date just a week after the one-year anniversary of Nick Cannon announcing Zen’s passing.
Back on Dec. 7, 2021, while addressing viewers on his talk show, Nick opened up about the heath issues that Zen—Cannon’s seventh child—was facing. Ultimately, he passed away, as Nick and Alyssa didn’t want to put the infant through chemotherapy.
While announcing the birth of Halo Marie a year later, Alyssa gave her late son a heartfelt shoutout, noting that he continues to be right by her side.
“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.”
Congratulations to Nick Cannon & Alyssa Scott on their new bundle of joy.
