*Nick Cannon has shared a photo of his new baby boy with ex-girlfriend and former beauty queen Brittany Bell.

The black and white pic shows the actor cradling his new son, Golden “Sagon” Cannon, born on Tuesday, Feb 21.

He quotes Psalm 30:5 in the caption: “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

Bell, a former Miss Arizona USA, had been dating Cannon on and off since his 2014 split from ex-wife Mariah Carey, although the two have known each other since they were children.

“I wanted to make sure it was someone who was solid, spiritual and had the same views,” he revealed. “She’s been in my life. Our families grew up in the same projects together in San Diego. So there’s a lot of substance there.”

Cannon and Carey have twins Moroccan and Monroe.

In a recent interview with Power 106 hosts J Cruz and Krystal Bee, Cannon said ‘Roc and ‘Roe are “super excited” about having a younger step-brother.

He also noted that his third child wasn’t an accident as people suspected. “Never an ‘oops baby.’ I’m so calculated with my moves…I’ve always wanted five kids,” he said, adding, “Just because my marriage was over didn’t mean I couldn’t continue my family.”
