Nick is married to Mariah Carey.
His children include Monroe and Moroccan, Onyx and Rise, Powerful and Legendary, Onyx and Rise, Powerful and Golden, Powerful and Legendary, Halo and Zen (he died), Beautiful, Zion, and Zillion.
Alyssa was pregnant and confirmed Nick’s fathership in November 2022. This just 11 months after Zen had died of brain cancer.

On June 28, 2022, he welcomed Legendary Love, his eighth child, to Bre Tisi.
Nick’s ninth child, Onyx Ice, was born to LaNisha Cole and Nick on September 14, 2022.

Nick and Alyssa Scott welcomed baby number 12, Halo Marie Cannon. She was born December 14, 2022.
They also had a son, but he died in 2021. Alyssa and Nick lost their beloved son Zen to a brain tumour on December 5, 2021.
Hydrocephalus is a condition in which fluid builds up inside the brain, increasing the size of ventricles and putting pressure on Zen.
Zen was found to have a malignant head tumor and was immediately admitted for surgery. Zen made it through surgery, but his health declined around Thanksgiving and he eventually died December 5.
“We knew from August that Zen would not live long on this planet. Scott shared an Instagram post that Scott previously shared. Scott stated that he knew Zen would not make it to 6 months. “I am eternally thankful he was in arms of those who loved him most.
He had his 11th child with his baby mama Abby De La Rosa – daughter Beautiful Zeppelin on November 11, 2022; they also share twin sons Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, one.
Mariah Carey, ex-wife of daughter Monroe, and son Moroccan
Mariah Carey and Nick tied the knot in 2008. They welcomed their first children on April 30, 2011, a set named Monroe Scott 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 claims Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, a late actress who was an inspiration to Mariah. Because Mariah doesn’t have one, they decided to not give her 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 December, Nick, now 11 years old and in the wake Zen’s death, spoke out about the difficulty he had to tell his twins about Zen’s passing. However, he credits their support, particularly Monroe, for helping him through the tragedy.
Monroe was a’so pure, so honest’ person that he said he is and called him his ‘best therapist’
“Having to explain it to [then]People spoke out to admit that the ten-year-olds are “pretty intense” at times.
“But their understanding and being there for us probably helped me keep it all together and really manage it. Roc and Roe were particularly helpful. They were there throughout the entire trip.
‘My daughter really, she’s so in touch and in line with her age and wise beyond all of my years. She’s my best therapist. I had many therapists.
She keeps me in line. 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. She is my oldest child, even though they are twins. She has helped me to keep my faith strong.
After the birth of Golden in 2016, Nick spoke out about their relationship with Golden’s younger brother. He revealed that the twins really enjoyed having a baby brother.
Entertainment Tonight heard that they love spending time with him. It is almost as if they are more interested in him having fun than having fun together.
They try to make him laugh. He is now walking so they are trying get him all the toys.
“Watching the whole older sibling thing happen, they understand the responsibility. They know that they can help him learn, which is great.
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 very easy for us to put our egos in – to believe that we want to do with time and effort. But then we have to take a step back.
“When it comes down to my children, it is what they want at any time. I plan my day around that.
Both of us consider our children the most important. It turned her into a wonderful mother. I feel like the whole world began to connect with her on this level.
“There will always exist unconditional love and a great partnership. It is a friend I cherish the most in my life.
“The fact that there is no blood tampering and we can still live together, I believe that that is the best place.

She explained that although April 2020 was the first pregnancy, it was not planned. However, Nick was a great friend of mine and was so helpful to me. Then, our focus shifted to having a child. We never imagined that we would have twins.
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 out there, it wasn’t something we were manifesting. We were just letting it flow.”

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 it was fascinating to watch her navigate this …’
He said that he was using his faith to help him through the terrible 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 way, so I’m taking it five at a.
‘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 the most delicate & the most precious thing that I’ve ever had the opportunity to talk 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 said, “I wanted be the protector of all my family. [everyone]So I decided to… Even when we are talking about it, it’s delicate.
He stated that he was using his faith as well as therapy to get through 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 am a father first and foremost.” “I feel a lot guilt, and I talk about it in therapy all of the time,” he said.
“It is rooted in not having enough to spend time with my loved one, particularly my children because I have many children.
“I am also spread thin in my job because that’s how it works for me. This is how I handle things.
I have multiple jobs and many shows, movies, music, etc. 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. Quality moments with my children and my family are the most important things.
“Had many quality moments with Zen during his brief time here. Time is a manmade construct, but energy and love are a blessing.
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 continued: “The whole family, I miss you young King! Forever Our Angel!’
