Nick Cannon and Bri Tiesi are basking in newborn life with baby Legendary Love, who turns 1 month tomorrow. After sharing the story of her ‘natural birth without medication’ yesterday, the model today posted new photos on Instagram of the trio. In this one, they pair up.
“WE DID THIS 🥰👩🏻🍼💙 @nickcannon!!” Tiesi captioned the footage. “You all know I had to get these #amazing family matching sets made 🥰.”
Tiesi and Cannon wear white hoodies and matching pants, and Legendary wears the smaller white hoodie. Zoom in to see his name embroidered on the hood. He sleeps peacefully in his mother’s arms, as Cannon stands behind the two, arms outstretched. Large silver balloons spelling out “Legendary Love” flutter in the background in the adorable photo.
The next photo is a close-up, with Cannon, Tiesi, and Legendary surrounded by blue, white, and silver balloons. She also shared a photo of Legendary and Cannon yawning at the same time, and the baby looks like his dad’s mini-me! The final image in the carousel is an ornately decorated L-shaped cake, with the name “Legendary” written inside a heart.
Cannon also shared the first photo on his Instagram yesterday, writing, “LEGENDARY LOVE CANNON!!!! Y’all are gonna need a wide screen for that name!!! So grateful to God The Most High Elohim YAWEH for a Healthy, Happy and Harmonious Mind having a Human Experience!!❤️🙏🏾”
He also shared Legendary’s nicknames: “aka LL COOL CANNON aka LLC aka YOUNG LE-LO aka BROTHER LOVE.”
Tiesi shared more photos and details about Legendary Love in another Instagram post yesterday. “Legendary love cannon,” she captioned. “8 lbs 10 oz June 28 1:28 💙.”
In the photos, taken when Legendary was “barely 48 hours old,” you can see close-ups of the baby yawning, looking at her mom, and sleeping. In one, Cannon holds him up while his wrinkled little feet are fully exposed to the camera. He’s such a sweet baby!
In her Instagram Stories, Tiesi shared how she kept her baby news a secret for almost a month.
“Lol, I was planning to keep my entire pregnancy a secret and announce when he was born or his first birthday etc, but someone sold me months later…” he said. she writes. “After that, I knew never to say where I was and I had enough photos to keep posting like I was pregnant. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…You see what I want you to see.
Legendary now also has his own Instagram account, which includes a sweet photo of him wrapped in a “Legendary” blanket.
In another post on her Instagram Stories yesterday, Tiesi explained why she waited to announce the birth of Legendary.
“I took my time because I wanted to enjoy my son and my family and allow my body, mind and soul true peace to recover and embrace every moment. The internet is a dark and unpleasant place and it’s the most vulnerable thing I’ve ever done. I’m glad I made that choice, I would have been too fragile right after.”
“The fact that people go out of their way to try to say the most horrible things to people they don’t know and that their goal is to be hurtful and mean and that even something as beautiful as new life can’t filter their hatred and the wickedness that I had to protect my son,” she continued, likely referring to the attention Cannon received for fathering so many children.
In addition to Legendary, the Wild ‘n Out the host is also a dad to 11-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, with ex-wife Mariah Carey; Golden, 5, and Powerful Queen, 1, whom he shares with Brittany Bell; and 1-year-old twins Zion and Zillion, with Abby De La Rosa. Last year, her seventh child Zen died of a brain tumor at the age of 5 months.
It’s so inspiring that Tiesi decided to take some time to rest after giving birth and share her baby news in her own way. Keep enjoying those newborn hugs and snapping photos of your beautiful baby boy!
