    'Today is a special one y'all for many reasons but it's not gonna be an easy one. I haven't even shared this with anybody, not even the crew,' Cannon began before revealing the news of Zen's death. 'I had a very tough weekend.' 

    This week the star told People that his heart is 'shattered' over the terrible loss that took place only 10 days ago.

    'We had a short time with a true angel,' said Cannon as he posed for the cover of People.

    '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,' added the Drumline star.

    Teary-eyed and choked up, he told his studio audience on December 7 that Zen died after previously suffering from hydrocephalus — a condition where fluid builds up in the cavities of the brain causing the head to increase in size and ultimately putting pressure on the brain. 

    Cannon said that the tumor developed quickly around Thanksgiving and that he spent an emotional last weekend with both Zen and Alyssa in Orange County, California where he held him by the beach.

    He explained on the show that issues with his infant — born in June — first began when he was about two-months-old as they noticed his head seemed large and they also thought he had a sinus issue. 

    'We didn't think anything of it. But I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing. We thought it would be routine.' 

    Following the check-up Zen underwent brain surgery and a shunt was placed to help drain the fluid down, but things ultimately took a toll for the worst.

    'I'm here to show that I can fight through this, I'm feeling it, I'm vulnerable, I'm open,' he said, and continued to film the next day.  

    'I'm grieving. I feel guilty for so many levels. I never wanted to exploit this. I kept it private for so long since I found out about Zen's diagnosis in respect to his mother Alyssa and to everyone in our family,' he shared on December 8.  

    Zen was the fourth of Nick's children born within the past year and a half, additionally welcoming twins Zillion and Zion born in June with current partner Abby de la Rosa, and daughter Powerful in December 2020 with Brittany Bell.  

    Heartbroken: Teary-eyed and choked up, he told his studio audience on December 7 that Zen had died after stating 'I had a very tough weekend' and added that he fought to spend as much 'quality time' with both the infant and his baby mama on his final weekend
