Nick Cannon apologises over statement about his eighth child


Popular US actor, Nick Cannon, has pleaded to everyone involved in his statement about his eighth child.

Nick had earlier set the internet ablaze after it was disclosed that he was anticipating his eighth child with a prominent model, Breana Tiesi, just a few weeks after he lost his five-month-old son, Zen.

Both Cannon and Tiesi had organised a gender reveal party in Malibu this Sunday and as guests unloaded party poopers with blue confetti, it was revealed that their baby was a boy.

Cannon confirmed Bre’s pregnancy on Monday by saying, “I’ve known about Bre’s pregnancy for a while now, even before my youngest son Zen passed in December, after the photos leaked.

In a video obtained on Thursday, Nick and the host of the talk show appealed for speaking about his late son while announcing his eighth child.

Nick apologised by saying, “I wish to always protect and respect the privacy of the mothers of all my children. I have such a great relationship and great admiration for everyone in my life. I failed to do so on Monday because there was a lot going on.

“I didn’t know how to explain it. I didn’t know what to say, so I was probably talking too fast and probably misspoke. I know I can do better when dealing with delicate and sensitive discussions.”

He also noted that he still loved Alyssa, “I sincerely apologise to everyone involved, for any extra pain or confusion that I may have caused.”
