Nick Cannon and ex-girlfriend, Brittany Bell, just welcomed their new-born son.
This “Chi-Raq” actor declared that his third child, Golden “Sagon” Cannon, his third child, had been born Tuesday via a picture he posted of the new-born infant photo-sharing site Instagram.
“Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!” he posted in photo’s caption. “No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! #TrueHappiness Welcome to Earth Son! Golden ‘Sagon’ Cannon 2/21/17 #Awakened.”
Cannon first confirmed the rumors that he’ll be welcoming another child, his first with Bell, 29 years old, who was previously Miss Arizona U.S.A., in an interview with Power 105.1 in their Breakfast Club segment last November.
“I got a baby on the way…absolutely,” he had stated at the time. “God said be fruitful and multiply. I’m doing the Lord’s work out there.”
In the beautiful black and white picture he posted on his Instagram page, Cannon can be seen gazing lovingly into his newborn’s eyes as he hugged him.
Cannn wrote that the child had been born Tuesday.
Cannon, 36 years old, has two other children, a pair of twins, five years old, named Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife and singer Mariah Carey. The couple had split in the month of August, 2014 following six years of marriage.
According to PEOPLE, Cannon reportedly told the radio show The Breakfast Club in November how he prefers not to call his last girlfriend Bell his ex.
“Mariah is my last ‘ex’” he said. “Everybody else is people that I’ve known, loved and cared for.”
The creator of “Wild N Out” said to ABC News in June that fatherhood “what I was put on this earth to do,” and that he hopes to have more kids.
“We’re here to be fruitful and multiply,” Cannon said. “That’s what our beings are made for, so we can raise our offspring up so they can have offspring, and [have] generations after generations.”
