Singer and actor Nick Cannon is mourning the loss of his youngest child, Golden, who died on Saturday at age 5 after a long battle with a brain tumor. Cannon expressed his grief through an Instagram post, reading, “I wake up today without my baby, and my heart feels like it’s going to explode. I have to post something to reflect on my son’s life and how he affected so many people. Last week I got the sad news that my son, Golden Bear Cannon, the most beautiful boy I’ve ever known, passed away at the age of 5.” The post includes a photo of Golden in his classroom. “I’m as broken as I’ve ever been and I just want to thank everyone for all the love,” he wrote. “There is no way to fathom such a special and innocent soul be taken from this world so suddenly.”
