Nick Cannon has welcomed his third child into the world. The entertainer’s ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell gave birth to Golden “Sagon” Cannon on Tuesday (Feb. 21). Cannon introduced his new baby boy to the world via Instagram.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!” Cannon wrote. “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.”

Cannon's child is sure to bring a lot of happiness to his life, which he needs right now. Just a few weeks ago, the rapper/actor announced that he would stop hosting America's Got Talent after NBC threatened to terminate him for making a joke about the network in a stand-up special. NBC did not fire him, but Cannon made it clear that he refused to return in a Facebook post.

“I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn’t have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property. There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity,” Cannon wrote. “I have loved hosting AMERICAS GOT TALENT for the last 8 seasons, watching talented, brave, and courageous Americans accomplish their dreams in front of millions has been nothing but a joy, and everyone has been a pleasure to work with but my soul won’t allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices.”

Cannon's entire post about the situation can be viewed below.
