Nick Cannon is expecting a second child with Alyssa Scott, his eleventh child in total.
Last week, Scott announced on Instagram that she was expecting a third child, but did not clarify who the father was. She gave birth to a son with Cannon, Zen, last year, who died after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
On Thursday, Scott confirmed that she is expecting another baby with Cannon by sharing maternity pictures on her Instagram, which has since been made private. The intimate photos show Scott and Cannon naked in a bathtub in numerous poses.
One of the posts was captioned: “This is a MIRACLE & a BLESSING.”

In a separate post, Scott posted a painting version of one of the maternity pictures. She said in the caption that she asked her “beautiful & talented friend @glorydayyys” to recreate a picture in which Scott is standing up in a bathtub and Cannon is holding her baby bump while sitting in the tub. Cannon shared a video of the photograph being turned into a painting on his Instagram Stories.
The couple’s previous son, Zen, died at 5 months old from brain cancer on December 5, 2021.
At the time, Cannon told People that he and Scott decided not to treat Zen with chemotherapy because they didn’t want him to suffer.
Cannon has had eight more children with six other women, the majority of whom were born within the last two years.
He shares 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with his ex-wife Mariah Carey; a 5-year-old son, Golden Sagon, a 1-year-old daughter, Powerful Queen, and a 6-week-old son, Rise Messiah, with model Brittany Bell; 1-year-old twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with DJ Abby De La Rosa; a 2-month-old daughter, Legendary Love, with “Selling Sunset” star Bre Tiesi; and Onyx Ice Cole Cannon with Lanisha Cole, who was born on September 14.
Earlier this year, Nick Cannon discussed going celibate or getting a vasectomy to stop having more kids.
In February, he told Dr. Laura Berman on “The Language of Love” podcast that he didn’t “have the bandwidth” for more kids.
“Because I feel like I do owe the women that are currently in my life, I owe them as much energy, time, and effort as I possibly [can] – especially my kids,” Cannon said.
However, in June, Cannon revealed on the “Lip Service” podcast that he broke the vow of celibacy he made last year after Zen died.
“I fell victim to it ’cause I was in a weak state,” he said. “So December, especially right before Christmas, I started fucking like crazy. So I broke the celibacy. But I was probably celibate for a month and a half strong. I was trying to do it. I had a new show, new energy, I was dealing with a lot.”
Ryan Reynolds responded to news of Cannon and Scott’s latest child with a tweet referencing a “vasectomy” gin ad Cannon participated in earlier this year.
“We’re gonna need a bigger bottle,” Reynolds wrote.
