On his Monday episode of his eponymous show, Nick Cannon confirmed and announced to the world; that he and model Bre Tiesi are expecting a baby boy together; which is also Nick’s eighth child. This comes less than 2 months after he and Alyssa Scott lost their son Zen, who died from brain cancer in December 2021.
The news met with mixed reactions online. Some of these reactions seemed to have affected Nick in a certain way; as he went on his show on Thursday morning and apologized on air after saying he “failed” to “protect and respect the privacy of the mothers of all my children” when he shared the pregnancy news earlier this week.
Nick Cannon says he Misspoke
I misspoke and probably went too much into detail on Monday expressing my feelings and it probably felt like I was making some comparatives when talking about the passing of my son Zen and then also talking about the new child I’m expecting.
I didn’t need to do that because those are two completely separate moments in my life and they both deserve the respect. This was always in the back of my mind, like, ‘What is the right time? How do I share this?
He continued; I know it seems awkward because people are trying to do the timing and all that … none of that matters. We lost a child and it still is a sincere and real situation.
I love her, I love my son Zen, and I always will. And I’m gonna love my new child. I’m a responsible human being and I take full responsibility for everything so I must say I sincerely apologize to everyone involved for any extra pain or confusion that I may have caused. Nick said in his apology.
Also, following Cannon’s announcement on Monday, the mother of his late son, Alyssa Scott made an emotional post about feeling at peace.
