"I walk around with a backpack full of guilt," Cannon said. "But at least I know that the harder that I work then it makes the guilt easier to deal with."

Cannon recently announced he is expecting hsi 8th child with model Bre Tiesi.

After the news leaked, he apologized to his baby mamas.

"Even going through all of that [Zen's death], this was in the back of my mind. When is the right time? How do I share this?" he said, adding that he felt "a lot of guilt" trying to figure out the "chronology" of the announcement.
