Nick Cannon honors his late son Zen with an angel tattoo on his rib.
Earlier this week, Nick Cannon and his baby mother Alyssa Scott revealed that they had just faced a horrible tragedy, as their five-month-old child, Zen Cannon, tragically passed away from brain cancer. A loss like that much be extremely difficult to endure, and both of Zen’s parents have since commented on the passing of the newborn boy.
On Instagram, Alyssa Scott wrote, “Oh my sweet Zen. The soreness I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away. It’s a painful reminder that you are no longer here. I caught myself looking in the backseat as I was driving only to see the mirror no longer reflecting your perfect face back at me. When I close a door too loudly I hold my breath and wince knowing a soft cry will shortly follow. It doesn’t come. The silence is deafening.”
