Congratulations to Nick Cannon who, along with ex Brittany Bell, welcomed a new baby boy to the world. The star posted a black and white photo to Instagram on Wednesday announcing the birth, giving us a sneak peak of the newborn and the happy now-father-of-three.
"Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!" he captioned the photo. "No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! #TrueHappiness."
"Welcome to Earth Son!" he added. "Golden 'Sagon' Cannon 2/21/17 #Awakened."
This baby has been the subject of much speculation after Cannon confirmed his role in Bell's pregnancy back in November.
"God said be fruitful and multiply,” he continued. “I’m doing the Lord’s work… Everybody get a baby! I’m passing them out."
"I don't know how she heard about it, but she called me, and she was funny with it," Cannon told Los Angeles radio station Power 106. "She was like, 'Mhm, I heard about you out here in these streets.'"
He and Carey happily co-parent Monroe and Moroccan Scott Cannon, although they live primarily with the "Touch My Body" singer. We can only assume he and Bell will pursue a similar arrangement.
Luckily, the star is back to full health and can spend as much time as possible with his new baby boy.
