On Tuesday, Nick tearfully announced their infant, Zen, had passed away only days prior. Following the tragedy, the talk show host's father, James Cannon, is opening up about how his 41-year-old son dealt with the devastating health news.

"Once he learned, he was quietly dealing with it. We talked about it, the whole family did," James told The Sun. "All of his children and baby mamas got together in San Diego in September, all of them apart from Mariah."

"I didn't quite understand before why he was bringing all those mothers together, all those children," James stated. "That's when he explained the situation, it was a simple conversation, he said, 'This is what we're dealing with, it's tough.'"

James revealed all of Nick's exes were there for him, except Mariah. He gave no explanation as to why the Grammy winner did not attend the family affair.

Despite Mariah's absence, Nick felt supported by all of the mothers of his children during the difficult time. "All of the baby mamas get on as far as I know, Nick is all about family," James told the outlet.

"It was a sad day but they didn't want to make Zen's illness the focus, they wanted to spend quality time together."
