Alyssa Scott Shares Touching Tribute to Her and Nick Cannon's Late Son Zen

Alyssa Scott has shared an emotional tribute to her and Nick Cannon's 5-month-old son, Zen, days after his heartbreaking death.

On Tuesday's installment of his eponymous talk show, Cannon, 41, was seen fighting back tears as he revealed that the youngest of his seven children had passed away following a battle with brain cancer.

The TV personality also praised Scott for her strength throughout the ordeal, saying: "Alyssa was like the strongest woman I've ever seen, because never had an argument, never was angry... was emotional when she needed to be but was always the best mom and continues to be the best mom possible."

On Wednesday, model Scott shared a tribute of her own as she shared a video montage of her son in happier times and as he battled ill health.

Captioning the clip, which featured Jhené Aiko's track "Promises" serving as the soundtrack, she wrote: "Oh my sweet Zen. The soreness I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away. It's a painful reminder that you are no longer here.

"I caught myself looking in the backseat as I was driving only to see the mirror no longer reflecting your perfect face back at me. When I close a door too loudly I hold my breath and wince knowing a soft cry will shortly follow. It doesn't come. The silence is deafening.

"These last 5 months we have been in this race together. We would hand the baton off to each other. You kept me going. It would be the middle of the night and you would smile at me. A surge of energy would fill my body and pure joy would radiate from within me. We were a team, both determined to see it through."

The mourning mother added that "it feels unbearable running without you now. I can't. And in this moment I feel myself being carried. By your sister.. By God. By complete strangers encouraging me to not give up."

Telling her late son that "it has been an honor and privilege being your mommy," Scott concluded, "I will love you for eternity. 6•23•21 - 12•5•21."

Addressing his son's tragic death on his show on Tuesday, Cannon said: "Over the weekend I lost my youngest son to a condition called hydrocephalus that was pretty much a malignant, invasive midline brain tumor, brain cancer. It's tough."

Revealing that Zen, who was born on June 23, recently underwent surgery, Cannon recounted how his ailing son suffered a major setback over the Thanksgiving holiday, with the parents learning that the tumor "began to grow a lot faster."

"This weekend I made a valid effort to spend the most quality time I could spend with Zen," Cannon told viewers and the studio audience. "We woke up on Sunday... and [we went] to the ocean...and then I had to fly back to New York. By the time I got in the car and was headed to the airport, I had to turn around."

He then shared how he held Zen for the last time that day, as he and Scott watched the sunrise and sunset with their child in his final moments.

Zen was Cannon's seventh child and his first with Scott. He also shares 10-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with his ex-wife Mariah Carey.
