Nick Cannon is a proud dad — again!
The former host of America’s Got Talent welcomed baby No. 3, a son named Golden “Sagon” Cannon, with his baby mama Brittany Bell earlier this week, on Feb. 21.
The 36-year-old — who is also dad to five-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-wife Mariah Carey — announced his boy’s arrival on Instagram. He captioned a sweet father/son moment, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning! No matter how hard the world may have hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! #TrueHappiness Welcome to the Earth son! Golden ‘Sagon’ Cannon 2/21/17.”
Nick confirmed he was expecting with the former Miss Arizona USA, a long-time friend, back in November.
“I’ve got a baby on the way,” he shared excitedly on The Breakfast Club. During the same interview, he called Brittany a “special young lady.”
Since announcing the pregnancy, he hasn’t shied away from gushing about the new addition.
“It’s outstanding,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Honestly, they say even in unexpected situations, you still embrace the beauty of bringing a life into this world, because that is what life is all about.”
While Mariah has yet to congratulate her ex on his new arrival since Sagon’s birth, she showed nothing but support for Nick during Brittany’s pregnancy.
“I’ll always be supportive of him and this is all news to me, ‘cause I didn’t know about this til maybe last week,” she said in November. “If he’s happy, that’s great.”
