Boxer Mike Tyson welcomes eighth child

Wednesday January 26, 2011

Mike Tyson has reason to celebrate after his wife Lakiha (pictured) gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

The new arrival will be the former heavyweight champion's eighth child.

A source close to the boxer said: "Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great."

The little one comes just 18 months after the 44-year-old's daughter Exodus died in a tragic accident aged four.

The couple are already parents to a two-year-old daughter Milan. Mike is also father to five other children from previous relationships.
