Nick Cannon could soon be welcoming another son.
The Nickelodeon alum, 40, and model Alyssa Scott are reportedly expecting their first child together, a son named Zen S. Cannon, Scott seemingly confirmed in a since-deleted Instagram post. Cannon's baby with Scott would be his seventh child and his fourth in a year.
Scott, who reportedly appeared on Cannon's game show Wild 'N Out, shared a nude maternity photo on Instagram last week, which has since been removed, and captioned the picture with the name of her baby boy on the way. This will be Scott's second child.
One user commented on the post to wish Scott "and Nick" congratulations on the baby, to which the model replied with a thank you.
In another comment, Scott revealed that she is currently 34 weeks along, and she is "getting to that uncomfortable stage" where "everything aches."
Cannon, who has yet to comment on the reports, wrote on Instagram Monday that he has a big announcement on the way, though he did not allude to the pregnancy news.
"Friends and family smiling every day... #staytuned," Cannon wrote alongside a picture of him interviewing a young girl.
The model first announced news of her pregnancy in January with a since-deleted photo of her bump on Instagram, writing, "Let's all gasp together ūüėā SO EXCITED!! Baby¬†#2¬†on the way!"

"No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you - is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can't wait to meet you both," De La Rosa added.
In March, De La Rosa hinted at the father's identity when she spun a set for Club Tummy, a virtual party for pregnant women, in front of the logo for Cannon's company N'Credible Entertainment. "It's @clubtummy #clubtummy Tuesday and tonight is daddy's pick!" she wrote in the caption.
De La Rose previously dropped another hint, writing, "Our suns, you already light up my life Ncredibly!"

Nick Cannon says he is "blessed" to have a big family.
The actor, who is set to launch his eponymous daytime talk show, spoke to Entertainment Tonight about recently welcoming new babies to his family over the past year, mentioning that his therapist suggested he be celibate in light of the news.
"I'm not sitting out here planning it. My therapist says I should be celibate," Cannon, 40, told the outlet, adding in jest, "Okay, give me a break bus. I'm [gonna] take a break from having kids."
Cannon continued, "I come from a big family, I have several siblings, [and] being raised in an unorthodox family by my grandparents at times, I've experienced such a wide range of upbringing that I have such a love and passion for kids and family. I want a big family too. The Lord has blessed me with what I asked. Ask and you shall receive."
The star added that he wants to be "transparent" about his personal life on his syndicated talk show: "[I've] never been a person that's shied away from talking about my life. But I want to refocus it on others. I'm gonna be talking for an hour each and every day, hopefully, people get to know me in a very intimate way. If I'm in the headlines the night before, I'm definitely talking about it the next morning."

Cannon welcomed twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir with Abby De La Rosa on June 14. His son Zen, whom he shares with model Alyssa Scott, was born nine days after Zion and Zillion.
Additionally, Cannon welcomed daughter Powerful Queen last December with Brittany Bell, with whom he also shares 4-year-old son Golden. Cannon is also dad to 10-year-old twins (son Moroccan and daughter Monroe) with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
On his Power 106 Los Angeles radio show in July, Cannon said he has been "having these kids on purpose" after City Girls rapper JT advised him to "wrap it up," a nod to using a condom during sex.
"I don't have no accident," he said at the time. "Trust me, there's a lot of people that I could've gotten pregnant that I didn't. ... The ones that got pregnant are the ones that were supposed to get pregnant."
