“I sincerely apologize to everyone involved for any extra pain and confusion I may have caused.”

After TMZ published photographs of what appeared to be Nick Cannon hosting a baby shower/gender reveal party with model Bre Tiesi, speculation began that 41-year old comedian could be expecting his 8th child. Days later, Nick confirmed the reports on his daytime talk show and admitted he was conflicted about the announcement due to the recent passing of his son Zen who he shares with Alyssa Scott.
On the show he stated:
“Everybody knows I have a lot of children. And I love them all dearly, sincerely, and every single one of my children are just as special as the other it’s never a competition, it’s never….. I mean parents know what I mean when I talk about just the love you have for a child whether it’s a child that’s here whether it’s a child that’s no longer here whether it’s a child that’s grown whether it’s a child that’s about to be here. That passion that it doesn’t matter how many you have or anything, there’s this unconditional love, this Godly like love that comes over the process.”
He goes on to discuss how although The Masked Singer host knew about Bre Tiesi’s pregnancy for a while, the passing of his son Zen caused internal conflication about the appropriate time to make the new baby announcement.
“This whole process was extremely difficult for me because I’ve known about Bre’s pregnancy for a while now, before my youngest son Zen passed in December. And so even going through all of that – this was always in the back of mind like when is the right time, when do I share this. We didn’t expect Zen to pass away, we didn’t you know, all of the news was so unexpected. So to kind of figure out a chronological order or hierarchy it kept me up at night.”
Later in the discussion, Nick talks about how he wanted to respect the grieving process for Alyssa Scott, and how Bre was willing to hold off on making any public announcements before they figured out the right timing for it.
Once the show aired, Alyssa Scott took to her Instagram page seemingly responding to the media storm surrounding Nick’s announcement, stating:
“It is painful having my son be apart of conversations that aren’t in alignment with his light and legacy.”
Now, Nick is making it clear that he wants nothing more than to protect and respect the mothers of his children, and offers an apology for any comments of comparison that he made.
On the show he states:
“I wanted to take a moment to listen and reflect on what I was saying and what’s popping and apologize properly.”
“I would like to address some of the comments that I made on Monday’s show. I wish to always protect and respect the privacy of all the mothers of my children.”
He goes on to discuss how he failed to do just that while having the conversation announcing the new baby because of everything going on, and that he likely was talking too fast and misspoke on the matter.
Later in the conversation he says:
“I know I can do better when dealing with delicate and sensitive discussions. So I promise you, promise the mothers of my children, I promise my family that I will do better and continue to be more understanding, caring, compassionate, like they often show me each and every day.”
Nick raps the convo showing love to Alyssa Scott, his son Zen, and every child that he has, and may have in the future and states:
“I’m a responsible human being and I take full responsibility for everything so I sincerely apologize to everyone involved for any extra pain and confusion I may have caused.”
