Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Television personality and actor Nick Cannon has announced via social media the birth of his third child.
"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," Cannon wrote in his Instagram post Wednesday. "Welcome to Earth Son! Golden "Sagon" Cannon 2/21/17 #Awakened."
The message accompanied a black-and-white photo of a shirtless, tattooed Cannon cradling his newborn son.
This is Cannon's first child with his ex-girlfriend, model Brittany Bell. He has 5-year-old twins -- Monroe and Moroccan -- with his former wife, singer Mariah Carey.
