Nick Cannon is officially the father of a dozen. The American television star welcomed his 12th child with model Alyssa Scott on December 14, 2022.

Alyssa and Nick are parents to the late Zen Cannon, who died of brain cancer in December 2021, five months after he was born.

The model announced through her instagram page on Thursday that they had welcomed a baby girl, Halo Marie Cannon, earlier in the month.

In the post, Scott shared a montage showing her and Nick in the delivery room where their daughter was born.

“December 14, 2022. Our lives changed forever,” Scott captioned the video.

He added: “Zen is in every breath I take. I know that his spirit was with us in the room that morning. I know he is watching us from above. He shows me signs every day. I will keep this memory forever.

“I will remember the sound of Nick’s voice saying ‘it’s a girl’ and the look on his face from everything we’ve been through. I will remember the sound of his crying with his first breath and feeling his heartbeat against mine. My sweet girl, I have my surprise! We love you, Halo Marie Cannon!”

Cannon recently welcomed a daughter, Beautiful Zeppelin Cannon, with disc jockey, Abbey De La Rosa, in November. Rosa and Nick already share 15-month-old twins, Zion and Zillion.

The Wild ‘N’ Out star is also the father of another set of twins, Monroe and Moroccan, 11, whom he had with his ex-wife, Mariah Carey.

Model Britney Bell is the mother of her children, Golden Sagon, 5, Rise Messiah, 3 months, and her daughter, Powerful Queen, 2.

Cannon’s son with Bre Tiesi, Legendary, was born in January of this year. He also welcomed a daughter, Onyx Ice Cole with model LaNisha Cole in September.
