In the second photo, Cannon matched in red plaid flannel pajamas in front of a fireplace while holding his twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, five months, with Abby De La Rosa.

The third photo showcased Cannon sitting outside while holding Zen, who he shared with Alyssa Scott, as both wore white knit caps.

Zen, who was born this past June, died December 5 after doctors diagnosed him with a brain tumor. The child had dealt with hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in brain cavities.

‘We had a short time with a true angel,’ Cannon said. ‘I wish I could have done more, spent more time with him, taken more pictures. I wish I could have hugged him longer. He was the most loving baby. I look at being his father as a great privilege.’

Cannon on his talk show praised Scott as ‘the strongest woman [he’s] ever seen.

‘Never had an argument, never was angry,’ he said. ‘Was emotional when she needed to be, but always the best mom, and continues to be the best mom.’

Speaking earlier this month with People, Cannon said that explaining the circumstances behind Zen’s passing to his older children was challenging.

He said, ‘Having to explain that to 10-year-olds and a four-year-old is pretty intense, but their understanding and them being there for me probably helped me keep it together as well as really deal with it. Specifically, even Roc and Roe. They were there for the entire journey.’

Scott on Friday took to Instagram with a post detailing how she’s processing her grief in the wake of Zen’s passing, sharing a picture of his crib.

‘Maybe you close the door to the nursery,’ she said. ‘Maybe you leave it open. Maybe you have boxed some things away – maybe you still fold and put them in the drawers. This is where I’m at. Walking by his room..sometimes going in.

‘Washing some of his clothes but putting aside others that still have his scent. A pile is growing because I don’t know exactly what to do but I’m not rushing myself into a decision.’

Scott said she was ‘thinking of all who are grieving this holiday season’ and was reading people’s ‘messages and keeping them close to me during this time,’ adding, ‘Love.’

Next to a onesie that read, ‘My first Christmas,’ Scott wrote, ‘I was so excited for him to wear this onesie. I have had it laying out since Thanksgiving.’

She also shared a shot of herself holding her child.
