Nick Cannon is a proud papa of seven!
The Masked Singer host shared a never-before-seen photo of newborn son Zen Scott to his Instagram Story on Tuesday, July 20, after welcoming him with rumored girlfriend Alyssa Scott on Wednesday, June 23. Alongside the photo of a sleeping Zen, Cannon wrote: “Introducing Zen Scott Cannon ‘aka Z Chillin.'” Zen's arrival marked the fourth time Cannon became a father within the past 12 months.
The 40-year-old also shared sweet photos and videos of his growing brood enjoying their day flying kites while gushing over fatherhood. “Flying kites with my kids is the most euphoric and joyful experiences of life!!" the Wild N' Out host captioned a close-up video of him and his daughter, who was not identified, with a kite.
Cannon included a photo of himself with his daughter strapped onto him as he and his mom, Beth Gardner, swayed back-and-forth on a swing set. "Momma about to turn 80 and she still out here playing on swings! True happiness!!" Cannot wrote, adding three red heart emojis.
Cannon has recently been making headlines for his ever-growing family. Abby De La Rosa gave birth to the pair's one-month-old twin sons, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, just weeks before Zen's arrival.
The "Gigolo" crooner also has welcomed 7-month-old daughter Powerful Queen, with model Brittany Bell — with whom he also shares son Golden, 4 — last December. In addition, Cannon shares 10-year-old fraternal twins, daughter Monroe and son Moroccan, with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
June proved to be a busy month for the Hollywood star after Cannon welcomed three new children, but he made it clear that his growing family is not a mistake. "I’m having these kids on purpose," he insisted on his Power 106 radio show. "I didn’t have no accident."
OK! reported that rumors of Cannon's expected seventh child began circulating on Father's Day when Scott cryptically wrote: "Celebrating you today," alongside a photo of herself and the former America's Got Talent host with his hands on her baby bump:
The model later took to Instagram following the arrival of little Zen, sharing a black-and-white photo of her holding her newborn. "I will love you for eternity 🖤 6•23•21," the excited mama captioned her pic, which appeared to be taken in a nursery.
Cannon may be loving his life as a father-of-seven; however, OK! exclusively learned that Carey is not as thrilled with her ex's growing family. “She thinks Nick is being irresponsible and reckless," the source claimed, alleging that the singer fears Cannon won't have enough time for the former couple's kids.
“Mariah really wants and needs Nick to be an active presence in their kids’ lives,” the pal continued. “He swears he has enough love and enough time to be a great parent to all his children, but his attention is going to be divided every which way!” Cannon and Carey wed in 2008 and separated in 2014 before they formally divorced two years later.
