Cannon blew minds over the weekend when photos popped up showing him alongside Bre at her gender reveal party. Nick sure seemed like the daddy, smiling and excitedly holding Johnny Manziel's ex-wife's growing tummy.

On Monday, he confirmed the baby is his, revealing he decided to wait to announce the news out of respect for Zen's mother, Alyssa Scott.

Spoiler alert — it's a boy!

"This was always in the back of my mind, like, 'What is the right time? How do I share this?'" he said on The Nick Cannon Show. "I wanted to definitely respect the grieving process with Alyssa, and Bre was respectful enough—she held off making our announcements and speaking on social media."

In December, Cannon tearfully told his audience that Zen died after a secret battle with a brain tumor. He said they had known his diagnosis for some time, but things took a turn around Thanksgiving.

On Zen's final day, Cannon and Alyssa took their son to the ocean and they watched the sunset together as a family.

The namesake talk show host has an excellent relationship with all of his baby mamas. Before Zen's tragic passing, all of the mothers of his children came together — except Mariah Carey — for a meeting where he informed them about his son's health struggles.

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

Zen was Nick's seventh child. He is a father to twins, Moroccan and Monroe, 10, who he shares with Mariah. He also welcomed Golden, 4, and Powerful Queen, 9 months old, with Brittany Bell, and another set of twins, Zion and Zillion, three months old, who he shares with DJ Abby De La Rosa.
