Ex-wife Mariah Carey, daughter Monroe and Moroccan Scott, 11 year old son
Mariah Carey married Nick in 2008. The couple welcomed their first child on April 30, 2011. They had twins Monroe and Moroccan Scott. The Carey family as pictured in 2018.
Nick and Mariah Carey tied the knot on in the Bahamas in 2008, and they welcomed the rapper’s first kids on April 30, 2011 – a set of twins named Monroe and Moroccan Scott.
People reports that Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe who was a source of inspiration for Mariah. Since Mariah does not have a middle name, they decided not to give Monroe a middle name.
As for Moroccan, the idea for his name came from the Moroccan décor in Mariah’s apartment, which is where Nick proposed to her.
His middle name, Scott, is also Nick’s middle name and his grandmother’s maiden name.
In the aftermath of Zen’s suicide, Nick shared his feelings about telling the twins (now 11 years) about Zen’s passing. He also credited Monroe’s support with helping him overcome the tragedy.
Monroe was a’so pure, so honest’ person that he said he is and called him his ‘best therapist’
‘Having the ability to explain it to [then]People reported that a 10-year-old’s attention span is quite intense.
“But their understanding, and being there to me probably helped keep it together as well. Roc and Roe in particular. They were with us for the whole journey.
“My daughter, really. She’s so in tune, in line, and wise beyond her years. She’s my best therapist. I had many therapists.
“She keeps me in control. She’s so genuine and open. She is 10 years old and asks powerful, strong questions.
“Really? It’s all love. She is my oldest child. They are twins but she is the one who came out first, and she tells everyone. She has helped me to keep my faith strong.
In 2016, Nick, after the birth his second son, Golden was born, opened up about their relationship and revealed that they enjoyed having a younger brother.
Entertainment Tonight: He said that the children love to hang out with him and it almost seems like they care more about him having fun than having fun.
They are always trying to make him laugh and he’s walking now so they want to buy him all the toys.
“Watching the whole older sibling thing happen, they understand the responsibility. It is cool that they understand that they can teach him, and it is also very exciting.
He also called them “geniuses”, and admitted that he was unhappy with the speed at which they were growing up.
“I am fine with my son growing-up.” He laughed and said, ‘It’s my daughter I have a problem. ‘I mean, shotgun’s loaded.’
In 2016, he said that he and Mariah had come to an understanding and unreserved love for the twins.
He stated, “When you are open to understanding and unconditional love for all things, there is no way you can go wrong.”
It would be easy to let our egos get in the way of what we think we should do with our time and energy, but then you have to step back.
“When it concerns my kids, it’s whatever they want at whatever hour, and I make my schedule around it.
“Those children are the most important thing for us both. It turned her into a wonderful mother. I feel like the whole world began to connect with her on this level.
“There will always be unconditional and great love. It is a friend I cherish the most in my life.
“The fact that we can coexist and there is no bad blood, is what I consider the best place.”

“I know that the Lord has called me and prepared my heart for the gift not one but two little angels.”

Let me add, this was not like us looking at a calendar and saying, “You gotta get pregnant by this date.” It was already a thought, and it came to pass.
“It was already there, it was something that we were manifesting and we just let it flow.
Now they are preparing for their third child together, but the gender of this baby is not known.

He wrote: ‘As we all know I am not easily triggered and have quite tough skin and have always been an open book but not everyone in my family has that same level of strength. So I pray and ask others to please project all criticism and cynicism towards ME and not the loving and precious Mothers of my children.’

Nick met Alyssa Scott when they both starred in MTV’s Wild ‘N Out. Years later – in January 2021 – they announced that they were having a baby together.
Their son, Zen, was born on June 23, 2021, with Alyssa writing at the time, ‘I will love you for eternity.’
But when the baby was two months old, they noticed he had come down with a cough that wouldn’t go away, and decided to have it checked out by doctors.
‘I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out,’ Nick later said on The Nick Cannon Show.
‘He had this interesting breathing and by the time he was two months, I noticed he had this nice sized head too, we called it a Cannon head.
‘We didn’t think anything of it, but I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing.’
After taking the newborn in for a ‘routine’ checkup, they were told he had a malignant tumor and needed emergency surgery immediately.
He had also developed hydrocephalus – a condition where fluid builds up in the cavities of the brain causing the head to increase in size and ultimately putting pressure on the brain.
He unfortunately passed away on December 5, 2021 – spending his last moments by the ocean.

‘He was the most loving. We called him Z Chilling. He was always smiling. He had the most beautiful spirit,’ Nick said after his death.
On the Today show, Nick praised Alyssa – ‘who carried a beautiful child for nine months and nurtured and cared for him every single day through this process’ – for her ‘strength.’
‘[Alyssa] is strong,’ he said. ‘She is definitely one of the strongest individuals I’ve known.
‘I couldn’t imagine – I mean, as a father, it’s painful, but for a mother who carried a beautiful child for nine months and nurtured and cared for him every single day through this process.
‘There were so much medicine and so many trips at the hospital and to the doctor. She’s also a mother-of-2 so to see her go through this …’
He stated that he had been using his faith and therapy at the time to overcome the loss.
‘I’m taking this – my therapist says so – five minutes at the time. However, I’m optimistic in finding the meaning through all of the pain so I’m trying smile. There are certainly some curves along the journey so I’m only taking it five minutes at the time.
‘Honestly [there] There was much fear involved [in telling people about Zen’s death]. I am so used to being positive, outspoken, and vulnerable that I will talk about any topic.
“But this was probably one of the most delicate and precious things I have ever had to speak about.
“And I didn’t have the words to describe it. I had never imagined that I would be forced to live in this situation. There was so much love and there was clearly some fear.
Alyssa: “I wanted to be the protector for my family as well,” [everyone]So, I wanted… Even when we are talking about it, it’s delicate.
At the time, he stated that he was using his faith as well as therapy to overcome the enormous loss.
In January 2022, the star admitted that he was ‘still missing his little dude’ Zen, while sharing a throwback photo of Moroccan, Zion, Zillion, and Monroe sitting with him, as he held Zen
“And that’s coming as a person who is used in talking to people every and everyday live here on television.” It’s scary.’
Nick spoke about his guilt at having to choose between fatherhood and work after Nick’s death.
“I’m a father. “I feel a lot guilt, and I talk about it in therapy all of the time,” he said.
It’s due to not being able to spend enough time with my loved ones, especially my children.
“I’m also spread thin at work because that’s the way I cope. This is how I handle things.
“I have many jobs, and I’m involved in several movies, shows, and music. While I like to be a provider for many people, I know one thing is certain: no matter how much I make, I can’t generate time.
It’s not about the quantity but about the quality. It’s about quality moments with my kids, with my family.
“Had many quality moments with Zen during his brief time here. I believe time can be manipulated, but energy and love are Godsends.
In an Instagram post, the star confessed that he still misses Zen just days before Bre and his gender reveal party in January 2022.
‘Still missing my little dude… His spirit and brightness were so strong #ZensLight,’ he captioned a throwback snap that showed Moroccan, Zion, Zillion, and Monroe sitting with him, as he held Zen.
He said, “The entire family, we ALL miss your young King!” Forever Our Angel!’
