Nick Cannon had a Merry Christmas with all of his kids! On Sunday, the father of seven took to his Instagram to share holiday photos that he had taken with all of his kids.
“Merry Christmas to All and to All Goodnight! Love The Cannons!” he captioned of the snaps.
Cannon recently shared some of the things his children requested as gifts this holiday season.
“My kids gave me their [Christmas] list the other night, and my son, my oldest son Roe, he wants some game. He’s a gamer. He wants a Motherboard,” Nick told his talk show’s audience members. “My daughter, because that’s Little Mariah right there, she wants high heels already. I was like, ‘You’re going to keep those UGGs on little 10-year-old girl,’” Cannon said of his oldest daughter, Monroe.
As for Nick’s younger son, Golden, “I’ve got a little genius. I’ve got Golden. He speaks five languages. He’s like mastering Mandarin. I’m like, ‘I don’t even know what you’re talking about.’ I need a translator to talk to him. He’s 4 [years old].”
Nick Cannon is a proud dad of 12-month-old daughter Powerful Queen and son Golden, 4, whom he shares with Brittany Bell; twins Moroccan and Monroe, 10, whom he shares with ex-wife Mariah Carey; and 5-month-old twins Zillow and Zion whom he shares with Abby De La Rosa. Cannon’s seventh child, Zen Scott, died from brain cancer earlier this month.
“We had a short time with a true angel,” opened up on his daytime talk show Nick Cannon. “My heart is shattered. I wish I could have done more, spent more time with him, taken more pictures. I wish I could have hugged him longer.”
In an exclusive interview with People, Cannon shared that his late son was diagnosed with a high-grade glioma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer, at two months. The television host and Zen’s mother, Alyssa Scott, made the difficult decision of choosing to not let their son undergo chemo.
“We were having quality-of-life conversations,” he says. “We could have had that existence where he would’ve had to live in the hospital, hooked up to machines, for the rest of the time. From someone who’s had to deal with chemotherapy before, I know that pain. To see that happen to a 2-month-old, I didn’t want that. I didn’t want him to suffer.”
Zen died peacefully on December 5th, 2021 with his mom and dad by his side.
