Nick Cannons partner Alyssa shares heartbreaking last clip of baby son Zen

Nick Cannon's girlfriend Alyssa Scott heartbreakingly posted a sweet clip of their son Zen just hours after it was announced he had passed away at five months old.

On Tuesday, television star Nick shared the devastating news on his talk show The Nick Cannon Show, revealing that Zen had passed away from a brain tumour over the weekend.

And Alyssa took to her Instagram Stories shortly after with an adorable picture of the late youngster sleeping soundly.

The 28 year old model then shared a lovely video of Zen as she cooed over him, saying: "Hi, you slept pretty good. Did you have lots of dreams? What were you dreaming about?"

Little Zen was seen in brown dungarees as he looked lovingly at his mother.

This comes after Nick tearfully revealed on his talk show how the family discovered the tot was battling a form of brain cancer called hydrocephalus.

"I always noticed he had a cough, and so I wanted to check it out," he explained. "He had this interesting breathing, and by the time he was two months, I noticed he had this nice-sized head too — a Cannon head. 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."

In what the family thought would be a "routine visit", they discovered Zen had fluid building in his head, and he had a malignant tumour.

Nick explained later Zen had brain surgery and a shunt to drain the fluid. But, things tragically took a turn for the worse in November.

"Thanksgiving, we had an interesting turn," Nick tearfully said. "And things just sped up. The tumour began to grow a lot faster. And so we knew that time was…"

He then went on to explain how himself and Alyssa had spent the last weekend treasuring moments with their son.

He recalled: "This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen.

"We woke up on Sunday, and I was just… I felt like I wanted to go to the water, close to the ocean. So we got a chance to go to the ocean.

"And usually on Sundays, I kind of handle everything I have to handle with the family and fly back to New York so I can be here for you all.

"But I wanted to make sure I had the sun to rise and hold my son. And… Having the last… holding my son the last time…" Dad Nick cried as the audience could be heard in shock.

He added: "It was a beautiful setting and to spend that whole day was interesting because even when I was holding my son I was still preparing my day as it normally went – to come back and come here.

"I didn't know what it was gonna be, but I just… But even by the time I got in the car and was headed to the airport I had to turn around."

The TV star continued: "I turned around, and not only did we get to see the sun rise, but we got to see the sun set, too. And I didn't know how I was gonna handle today, but I just wanted to grieve with my family."
