Nick Cannon and Abby De La Rosa have welcomed two new sons. On Monday (June 14), De La Rosa gave birth to a pair of twins, Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir. The DJ and broadcasting professional shared the first glimpse of the newborns in an Instagram post on Wednesday night (June 17).

“JUNE 14TH, 2021” the new mom captioned a clip of her cradling her sons in the hospital. “Welcome to the world Zion Mixolydian Cannon & ZIllion Heir Cannon.”

“#MyWorld #TwinBoys,” she added.

On her Instagram Story, De La Rosa also posted a photo of the twins’ tiny hands, captioned “Zion & Zilly.” The post also included Lauryn Hill’s 1998 song, “To Zion.”

Zion and Zillion are Cannon’s second set of twins. He shares 9-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. The “Masked Singer” host is also dad to a 3-year-old son, Golden, and daughter Powerful Queen, whom he shares with Brittany Bell. So far, Cannon hasn’t posted about the twins’ birth on social media.

De La Rosa documented her pregnancy journey on Instagram and revealed in April that Cannon was the boys’ father.

“Our dearest sons, my miracle babies, Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy,” she wrote in a post. “I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy.”

“That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose,” she continued. “Your Dad and I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. 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.”
