Zen was born on June 23, the result of his relationship with the model Alyssa Scott , and soon began to show symptoms of health complications.

He had a peculiar way of breathing,” said the presenter, who was told by the doctors after the check-up that his son had hydrocephalus and that he needed urgent surgery in which they placed him a valve. “We had hope at the time and we kept moving forward.

Zen’s situation worsened on Thanksgiving (November 25), prompting Carter and Scott to make a decision. “That weekend I made an effort to spend as much time as possible with my son Zen . We got up on Sunday and Alyssa and I went with him to the sea. Then I went back to New York for the show … But at the airport I got a call to go back to him, “he explained to the audience visibly excited.
