On Tuesday, a tearful Nick Cannon disclosed on his daytime talk show- The Nick Cannon Show that his youngest son, 5-month-old Zen, died of brain cancer.

While speaking about the illness, an emotional Nick Cannon said they took their baby for a routine exam for sinus issues only to discover that he was battling Hydrocephalus, a form of brain cancer.

“I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out,” he said. “He had this interesting breathing and by the time he was two months I noticed he had this nice sized head too — a Cannon head. We didn’t think anything of it. But I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing. We thought it would be routine.”

Cannon said that the discovery became a nightmare for his family as they also found out that baby Zen had a malignant tumor in his head along with swelling of the brain due to fluid buildup. The baby later had brain surgery to drain the fluid, but his health began to deteriorate.

“This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa and then I had to fly back to New York for the show,” he shared as he became teary-eyed. “I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen.”

The entertainer said he had a chance to hold his son for the last time this weekend before he passed away.
