"We didn't think anything of it, but I wanted to take him to the doctor about his sinus and breathing."
After taking the newborn in for a "routine" checkup, they were told he had a malignant tumor and needed emergency surgery right away.
He also developed hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in the cavities of the brain, causing the head to enlarge and ultimately putting pressure on the brain.

'Honestly [there was] a lot of fear involved [in telling people about Zen's death]. I'm so used to being upbeat and blunt and even vulnerable at times when I'm talking about anything.
“But this was probably the most delicate and precious thing I've ever had to talk about.
'And I didn't know how to talk about it, I never imagined having to be on this stage, so as much as it was an outpouring of love, there was a lot of fear, obviously there was some pain.

'I'm also so spread out in my work because that's how I survive. That's how I deal with things.
'I have a lot of jobs and a lot of shows and movies and music, all of that. And I consider myself a supplier to many, but one thing that no matter how much money I earn, one thing I can't earn is time.
“It's not about quantity, it's about quality. And it really is just quality time with my kids, quality time with my family.
