After he passed away, Cannon shared with People, "We had a short time with a true angel. My heart is shattered. I wish I could have done more, spent more time with him, taken more pictures. I wish I could have hugged him longer."
He describes the little one as “the most loving baby,” adding, "I look at being his father as a great privilege."
Alyssa told the magazine in a statement, "It was a privilege being Zen's mommy. It's so beautiful and encouraging to see even complete strangers being touched and moved by Zen's light. Zen's spirit and light will shine bright forever."
