As previously reported by OK!, the 5-month-old passed away earlier this month of a brain tumor.

Scott shared a montage of clips of the baby on Instagram, while Jhené Aiko's "Promises" played in the background. "Oh my sweet Zen. The soreness I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away," the grieving mama began her caption. "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," she heartbreakingly continued.

"These last 5 months we have been in this race together. We would hand the baton off to each other. You kept me going," she added. "It would be the middle of the night and you would smile at me. A surge of energy would fill my body and pure joy would radiate from within me."

"We were a team, both determined to see it through. It feels unbearable running without you now. I can’t," she candidly admitted in her post.

Despite the unbearable suffering, Scott acknowledged those around her for helping her through this tragic time. "And in this moment I feel myself being carried. By your sister.. By God. By complete strangers encouraging me to not give up. It has been an honor and privilege being your mommy.. I will love you for eternity. 6•23•21 - 12•5•21," the brunette beauty concluded.

"Zen's mom, Alyssa, was just the strongest woman I've ever seen," the Wild 'n Out host said on his show, adding that the model was "always the best mom, and continues to be the best mom."

Zen was the fourth child Cannon welcomed within the last year and a half. He welcomed Zillion and Zion in June and daughter Powerful last December.
