Nick Cannon’s baby mama Alyssa Scott spotted for the first time since they lost five-month-old son Zen to brain cancer

NICK Cannon’s grieving baby mama has been spotted for the first time since their five-month-old baby son Zen passed away from brain cancer. 

Exclusive pics obtained by The Sun show model Alyssa Scott, 28, picking up coffee and dropping off her three-year-old daughter Zeela at a school in Chico, California.

She was seen just days after her son Zen tragically lost his battle to a malignant brain tumor on December 4. 

Alyssa has been staying with her parents Alex and Lisa at their home in Northern California while she mourns the loss of Zen.

Meanwhile The Masked Singer host Nick, 41, has continued to work on his daytime talk show, where he revealed on Friday that he had got a tattoo on his rib to honor baby Zen.

A source who saw Alyssa in Chico on Saturday told The Sun: “Alyssa went to a Starbucks drive thru.

“Her mom was driving and managed to make Alyssa smile while they were talking but you could see how heartbroken she is.

“Her smile quickly faded and it was plain to see that she is going through a lot at the moment. 

“Then they went on to a local school, Alyssa got out with her daughter and went in to drop her off there.

“As she came back to the car she stopped to give a friend a big hug, the friend was trying to console Alyssa but she looked devastated.”

Nick – who shared his seventh and youngest child with former flame Alyssa – was seen stepping out in public for the first time in Los Angeles on Friday. 

The comedian and TV presenter broke down in tears as he first revealed that Zen had died during his show on Tuesday.  

Alyssa’s mom Lisa Scott, 50, told The Sun this week that her daughter did not know that Nick was going to make the announcement.

On Friday’s episode Nick revealed his new tattoo of baby Zen depicted as an angel on his left ribcage. 

He told the New York studio audience: “I got the opportunity to actually go and get a tattoo of my son Zen as an angel on my rib.

“I'm still all bandaged up and it hurts, right here, right now.

“It was a lot of pain but it was so well worth it.” 

Zen was born on June 23 this year and diagnosed with hydrocephalus – the build up with fluids within the brain – after the family noticed that he seemed congested in July.

Doctors detected brain cancer after he had surgery to insert a shunt drainage system in his head, according to Alyssa's mom.

He had not been in pain until around Thanksgiving but after that the family noticed that he seemed uncomfortable.

Alyssa paid tribute to Zen on Wednesday with a heartbreaking Instagram post. 

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." 

Nick’s father James, 85, told The Sun earlier this week that Nick had brought together all of his children and baby mamas for an emotional conversation about Zen’s cancer battle before he died.

Only pop superstar Mariah Carey – who Nick shares 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with – was not present at the gathering as she remained on the East Coast.  

James said: "Once he learned, he was quietly dealing with it. We talked about it, the whole family did.

"All of his children and baby mamas got together in San Diego in September, all of them apart from Mariah.”
