The new mom, who appeared to confirm that she was expecting a son with Cannon on Father's Day when she shared a photo of him and her baby bump, and she recently announced that she welcomed her baby boy on June 23.

Cannon previously welcomed twin sons, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, with Abby De La Rosa on June 14. Additionally, he welcomed daughter Powerful Queen in December with Brittany Bell, with whom he also shares 4-year-old son Golden "Sagon."

He also shares 10-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, 51.

Last Saturday, Scott announced the birth of her baby boy with a trio of black-and-white photos on Instagram, two of which showed her cradling the newborn in her arms. "I will love you for eternity," she captioned the images.

On her Instagram Story she also shared a sweet mother-son photo, which she captioned with the newborn's name, Zen, alongside a heart emoji.

In honor of Father's Day last month, Scott appeared to share a tribute in honor of Cannon. The model shared a maternity photo, and while Cannon's face could not be seen completely in the image she shared, the man's tattoos are noticeably consistent with the Wild 'N Out star.

"Celebrating you today," she wrote to Cannon, posting the photo on her Instagram Story.

The pregnancy news came after Scott all but confirmed that Cannon is her baby's father in a since-deleted maternity photo she posted last month, which she captioned with their son's name, Zen S. Cannon.
