Nick Cannon‘s family just got a little bigger.

The former America’s Got Talent host announced the birth of his new son, Golden, on Instagram this Wednesday (Feb. 22, 2017). Alongside a photo of him cradling his baby boy, the 36-year-old wrote, “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.”

Last November, Cannon confirmed that he was expecting a child with his ex-girlfriend, Brittany Bell. The were on-and-off since Cannon’s split with Mariah Carey in 2014.

“I’ve got a baby on the way … God said be fruitful and multiply,” he said at the time, before joking, “I’m doing the Lord’s work … everybody get a baby!”

This is Cannon’s third child. He is also the father to 5-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, with whom he shares with Carey.
