Actor and comedian Nick Cannon has welcomed a son into the world after ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell gave birth on Tuesday.

The boy, which is Cannon’s 3rd child, has been named Golden “Sagon” Cannon. He has two children from his marriage to superstar singer Mariah Carey, twin boys Moroccan and Monroe.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!” Cannon, 36, captioned a photo of himself holding their newborn son, along with the hashtag #Awakened. “No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! #TrueHappiness Welcome to Earth Son!”

Even though he isn’t dating Bell anymore, they grew up together, and the America’s Got Talent host has a high opinion of her.

“I wanted to make sure it was someone who was solid, spiritual and had the same views,” he revealed in an interview on Power 106. “She’s been in my life. Our families grew up in the same projects together in San Diego. So there’s a lot of substance there.”
