With four kids under a year old, Nick Cannon is making headlines for his baby-making antics. Also garnering vast media attention is his newest baby mama Alyssa Scott.
Television personality Nick Cannon became a seventh-time father with the birth of his son Zen S. Cannon after weeks of speculation. The woman responsible for this newest addition is none other than model Alyssa Scott.
Like Nick’s other baby mamas, Scott has been in the spotlight since she was first linked to the actor. Curious about this newest addition to Nick Cannon’s list of baby mamas? Here is all you need to know about her.
WHO IS ALYSSA SCOTT?
In May 2021, a mystery woman shared maternity photos on social media, along with a proposed baby name, Zen S. Cannon.
The post raised brows as many wondered if Cannon was indeed expecting a seventh child. Weeks later, the world received foolproof confirmation, with the birth of the icon’s seventh child, and fourth in six months. Meet the woman behind the mystery.
Cannon’s latest baby mama is an American fashion model and an Instagram sensation who reportedly worked with the television personality on “Wild ‘n’ Out.”
Alyssa Scott’s parents welcomed her on October 12, 1993. Her dad, Alan Scott is a businessman, while her mom, Lisa Marie Kalender is a homemaker.
The Austin Texas native also has a brother called Alex, who makes a living as a dirt bike racer, and a 10-year-old sister.
WHAT IS SCOTT KNOWN FOR?
Aside from modeling, Scott is a fitness enthusiast and social media influencer, with over 188 thousand Instagram followers. She also has entrepreneurial ventures.
As a model, the mother of one has been associated with several top brands and agencies including Dan Bilzerian and Ignite. Despite making waves in the fashion world for years, she only shot to fame after opening up about her pregnancy with Nick’s baby.
SCOTT’S RELATIONSHIP WITH CANNON
Alyssa Scott and Nick Cannon first made headlines in October 2020, while the duo hit the streets of Malibu to mark the former’s 27th birthday. The pair were photographed outside the oceanfront restaurant, Nobu, located in Malibu, as they made their way to an awaiting matte black Rolls Royce.
The internet sensation looked festive in a sheer fringe maxi dress while cozying up to Cannon, who had an arm wrapped around her. Seven months later, the model disclosed her pregnancy, welcoming her son barely one month afterward.
Although Cannon was yet to publicly acknowledge Scott as his girlfriend, their social media posts so far have been suggestive of their romantic involvement, including one in which the 27-year-old referred to the father of seven as her “love.”
SCOTT’S PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
Alyssa Scott went public with her pregnancy in May 2021, sharing an exotic photo of herself sporting a baby bump. She captioned the brow-raising shot with the name of the unborn child, Zen S. Cannon.
The last name immediately stirred an online frenzy, as fans went out of their ways to discover if the child was Nick Cannon’s. Many took to the comment section to ask the expectant mom directly. However, she gave no direct answers, simply replying with sweet emojis.
Gladly, the fashionista did not keep fans guessing for too long. The fitness enthusiast ushered in Father’s Day with a photo of herself and Nick Cannon striking a sweet pose. Although his face was barely visible in the shot, fans could easily identify the star from his elaborate arm tattoos as he cradled Scott’s tummy bulge.
Soon after Abby De La Rosa’s twins arrived, Scott shared another cryptic photo of herself palming her baby bulge affectionately, announcing via caption that she was in the final days of her pregnancy.
Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed their son on June 23, 2021, taking to Instagram to announce the news. The new mom shared three photos of her holding the newborn, as she vowed to always love him.
The baby’s arrival made Cannon a father of seven, including two sets of twins.
ALYSSA SCOTT ON INSTAGRAM
Scott has an impressive online presence, with numerous modeling shots of her flooding her Instagram page, @itsalyssaemm. After welcoming her child, Scott received several comments on social media, some of which were not so pleasant. Days later, the model made her Instagram page private, giving no explanation.
She changed the privacy settings shortly after, making her posts visible and open to comments once again.
MEET CANNON’S BABY MAMAS
Before Alyssa Scott came into the picture, Nick Cannon had three other baby mamas who blessed him with six amazing kids.
The TV presenter became a first-time dad ten years ago, during his eight-year marriage to singer Mariah Carey. The duo welcomed fraternal twins, Moroccan and Monroe in 2011.
Despite their divorce, the 40-year-old still speaks fondly of Carey, admitting she was the only eligible woman if ever he decided to remarry.
In 2017, two years after divorcing Carey, Bell welcomed a son, Golden Sagon, with Brittany Bell. Then in December 2020, the star welcomed another child, Powerful Heir, with Bell, making him a father of four.
In June 2021, six months after Powerful’s arrival, the entertainment icon welcomed twin boys Zion and Zillion with professional Dj, Abby De La Rosa.
Interestingly, Zen arrived barely days later, crowning the Hollywood icon’s large family.
