Nick Cannon issued a public apology on Thursday for any “pain or confusion” he may have caused while announcing he was expecting his 8th child with Bre Tiesi.
In an effort to be transparent with his audience, Nick may have gone a bit overboard.
He shared that he knew about Bre’s pregnancy before Zen’s passing and lost sleep over when he should share the news considering the fact that he and Alyssa Scott are still grieving the loss of their child.

On Monday, Alyssa took to her Instagram Story writing:
I want to thank every single person who has messaged or thought of me over the course of these last few months.
I always say Zen expanded my heart in ways I never thought possible. He filled that space with compassion, know I would need that most.
It is painful having my son be a part of conversations that aren’t in alignment with his light and legacy. It isn’t something I chose for him or myself. It’s important for me to let you all know .. I am centered, I am at peace. I look at everyone’s predicament with loving eyes. I will not judge. I will consciously decide what I will participate in. I am surrounded by love.
God, my mom, dad, sister, brother and daughter continue to carry me.

Nick Cannon took a moment on Thursday’s show to issue an apology for misspeaking on Zen while announcing he has another son on the way with Bre.
I misspoke and probably went too much into detail on Monday expressing my feelings.
And, it felt like I was probably making some comparatives or probably discussing, when talking about the passing of my son Zen and then also talking about the new child that I’m expecting.
I didn’t have to do that. I didn’t need to do that because those are two completely separate moments in my life, and in life.
And they both deserve the respect that they… grieving is a process, and I’m still grieving each and every single day.
And myself and Alyssa, our family we still deal with that and I know it seems awkward because, you know, people trying to do the timing and all… none of that matters!
We lost a child, and it was a sincere and still is a sincere and real situation.
And I love her, I love my son Zen, and I always will.
And, I’m going to love my new child, and I’m going to love every child from that point on.
I’m a responsible human being and I take full responsibility for everything.
So I must say I sincerely apologize to everyone involved for any extra pain or confusion that I may have caused.
In addition to his apology, Nick added:
I wish to always protect and respect the privacy of the mothers of all my children.
I really want to be sincere, whether that’s someone who is new or someone who has had my child. I have much admiration for everyone in my life and I believe I failed to do so on Monday.
