Nick Lost His Son

Nick is the father of 12 kids. He could be the father of 13, but sadly, his youngest child, son Zen, died five months after his birth. Nick shared everything about his son in a show. 

He recalled the time when his son Zen was born and said that he was very happy and excited when Zen arrived. Zen was beautiful, always smiling and chilling. 

Because of his playful nature, Nick and his family even called him Z chilling. However, since he was born, Nick has always noticed something strange with his breathing. 

Zen always coughed, but Nick thought it was just a sinus that most newborn babies get. He even thought that Zen’s different breathing pattern was because of sinuses, too. 

When Zen was two months old, Nick thought of taking his son to a routine checkup just to make sure he was okay. After the checkups, doctors also assured that it was only sinus. 

Zen had a big head since he was born, but as time passed, his head size started getting bigger. And later, it was found that Zen had fluid in his head and that fluid was leading to an increase in head size. 

The doctors then decided to remove the fluid with a shunt however, it didn’t work. It was a malignant tumor. Zen’s tumor started growing rapidly after Thanksgiving

Nick shared that he was extremely thankful to the doctors and all the medical staff because they shared every medical condition about Zen clearly. It was a difficult time for him and his baby's mom Alyssa

Nick’s whole family supported him, and Nick personally felt that Alyssa was a strong, brave woman. Despite so many issues with their babies, she never lost control. 

There were times she got emotional, but she handled everything on her own. After five months, his son took his last breath, and now Nick is all left with his little boy’s memory.

Nick Would Love To Have Baby With T.S

Nick is currently a father to 12 kids. He shared his 12 kids with different women, and because of that, most people wanted to know if he was done having babies or not. 

He gave an interview to “The Howard Stern Show” where he was asked the same question by the interviewer if he was done having children or not. 

Nick replied that he doesn’t have any answer to that question because he himself has no idea if he is done having children or not. 

He has been asked that question several times in several interviews, and he said the same thing. 

But one time, when he was asked about being done with babies, he answered by saying that he would leave that thing to God. 

The religious people having faith in god got so offended by his answer that they started backlashing him, saying not to bring Jesus in all his baby things. 

The interviewer then gave Nick the condition of falling in love with an amazing woman, and he gave the example of Taylor Swift and asked about having a baby with her. 

Nick agreed to the condition, and he said that he would definitely have a baby if it were with Taylor Swift. 

He personally finds Taylor as an amazing songwriter, and he feels that she and he are a lot same when it comes to being in the streets. 

He said that Taylor has also dated many in public eyes, and so did he, so he thinks that Taylor would understand him properly.

Because of that similarity, he won’t deny having a baby if it is with Taylor. 

The interviewer also told him that he wanted to see Nick having a baby with Taylor, and he also gave Nick a hint about Taylor being single.
