Congratulations to Nick Cannon, who has announced the birth of his third child - a little boy called Golden 'Sagon' Cannon. The former America's Got Talent host took to his Instagram page on Wednesday to post a beautiful black and white of his newborn baby, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell. In the caption, he gushed: "Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning! 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." [sic]

The new arrival is a second son for Nick, who already has five-year-old twins with ex-wife Mariah Carey. During an appearance on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club in November, Nick confirmed that he and former beauty queen Brittany were expecting a child together. "I've got a baby on the way," he told the radio hosts after praising Britany - who he is not in a relationship with - and called her a "special young lady".

Nick also shares twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Maria Carey

"I don't have any exes. Mariah is my last ex," he continued. "Everybody else is just people that I know, love and care for. [Bell] is not my ex!" Nick, and Mariah, 46, share five-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. The former couple announced their split in 2014, but their divorce was finalised earlier this year. Despite their divorce, the former couple have remained on good terms and make sure their children always come top of the priority list. "We'll always be a family," he previously said on the Ellen DeGeneres show. "We make the kids the number one priority, for them to see their parents together and for everybody to get along and have a good time."
