Nick Cannon has confirmed he is expecting his 12th child with a stunning photoshoot, in which he cradles and kisses the baby’s bump.
And last week, Alyssa Scott posted on Instagram to reveal she was also pregnant, with reports suggesting that Cannon was the father.
The couple had previously welcomed a son called Zen, who tragically died at just five months in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
Now Cannon has confirmed the baby Scott is expecting is, indeed, his, having shared a pregnancy bathtub photoshoot they had with photographer Gabriel Villalobos.
Posting the images on Instagram, Villalobos wrote: “Thank You @itsalyssaemm & @nickcannon for letting me photograph and share this special moment with you guys.”
In one image, Scott is looking down at Cannon as he cradles the bump with his left hand, while another shows him kissing the bump.
A third shows Scott relaxing in the bath by herself, staring into the camera with her hair wrapped in a towel.
Scott reshared the images on her own page, which has since gone private, while Cannon proudly posted one of the snaps to his Instagram Stories.
It’s pretty hard to keep up with Cannon’s growing brood, which all began with twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe, who were born in 2011 from his previous marriage to singer Mariah Carey.
Cannon also has three children with model Brittany Bell - Golden Sagon Cannon (b. February 2017), Powerful Queen (b. December 2020) and Rise Messiah (b. September 2022).
Then there’s twin sons with Abby De La Rosa, Zion Mixolydian (b. June 2021) and Zillion Heir (b. June 2021), with the aforementioned third child also on the way.
Along with late son Zen (b. June 2021) with Scott, Cannon has a son called Legendary Love (b. June 2022) with model Bre Tiesi, as well as one daughter called Onyx Ice Cole (b. September 2022) with model LaNisha Cole.
Cannon announced the arrival of his 10th child back in September, writing: "Another Blessing!!! As my journey on this planet becomes more and more remarkable and unfathomable, all I can do is thank God and continue to ask the Most High to order my steps.
"He has given me stewardship and dominion over a family dynamic that to some is unimaginable.
"But more importantly he has blessed me with loving individuals to guide me with care through this purposeful life.
"I am so indebted and grateful for the matriarch energy in my time of need."
He added: "Probably the most difficult labor and delivery I have ever witnessed!.
"48 hours of excruciating pain and life risking danger to welcome 10 pounds of Love and joy named RISE MESSIAH CANNON."
