In December, Cannon lost her youngest child, Zen, died at the age of five months of brain cancer. He revealed that he knew about Tiesi’s pregnancy before his son’s death and delayed the announcement. Canon said:
So even going through all of this, it was always on my mind, like, ‘When is the right time? How can I share this?’ Nobody, we didn’t expect Zen to die… All the news was so unexpected.
Cannon said he wanted to respect Zen’s mother Alyssa Scott and explained how Tiesi held back the announcement to respect her as she mourned the passing of her son. According to Canon:
I definitely wanted to respect the grieving process with Alyssa, and Bre was quite respectful — she held back from making our announcements and speaking on social media. She’s a very, you know, person in the public eye, but she also keeps her stuff private.
