Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott’s late son, Zane, would have turned 1 on Thursday, and the grieving parents revealed on Instagram that they would pay tribute with a sweet gesture.
Alyssa posted a video montage of a Zen set to the tune of Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” The videos included some of Zane’s cutest moments, from Alyssa’s hanging out with the baby in the crib and Zane smiling while donning Mickey Mouse pajamas.
Alyssa captioned the post saying, “Happy Birthday Zen. Love is at the core of all the emotions I have today. I try my best to always be positive but right now I can’t help but cry ‘It’ No. Suppose it should be so.'”
She continued, “In my mind I can see him breaking my cake and crawling around, groping my legs. But the reality is that I will blow out his first candle. I wish he was still with us.” Go Rest High We miss you in physical son but feel you spiritually and complete with you forever. Happy birthday! We love you Zen.”
Hours later, Nick reposted the same video and captioned it, “#REPOST Loving, nurturing, irreplaceable & strength-filled Amazing Mother @itsalyssaemm says it’s better than ever.”
Back in December, Nick announced on his canceled eponymous daytime talk show that his 5-month-old son had died of brain cancer and subsequent tumors. Nick and Alyssa welcomed Zayn back in June 2021, making him Nick’s seventh child.
“Over the weekend I lost my youngest son to a condition called hydrocephalus, which is a malignant, midline brain tumor – brain cancer,” he said on his show. according to Mayo ClinicHydrocephalus is “a buildup of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) within the brain. Excess fluid enlarges the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain.”
“I always noticed he had a cough and that’s why I wanted to get it checked out,” he said. “He had this interesting breath and by the time he was two months old I noticed that his head was in such a good shape too – the head of a cannon. We didn’t think anything of it. But I was giving him the medicine for his sinuses. Wanted to be taken to the doctor. And breathing. We thought it would be routine.”
Just days after Zayn’s tragic death, Alyssa also took to social media and shared her heartache with an emotional tribute.
Alyssa wrote in an emotional tribute, “Oh my sweet Zen. The pain I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly going away. It’s a painful reminder that you are no longer here.” “I caught myself looking in the back seat as I was driving only to look at the mirror, which is no longer reflecting your right face on me. When I close a door too loudly I I hold my breath and knowing a soft cry will soon follow. It doesn’t come. The silence is deafening.”
“The last 5 months we’ve been in this race together. We’ll pass the baton to each other. You got me ahead,” she continued. “It would be midnight and you would smile at me. A surge of energy would fill my body and pure joy would flow out of me. We were a team, both determined to see it happen. It feels unbearable to run without you now.” I can’t. “
