Singer-actor and former “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon and his longtime friend Brittany Bell welcomed a child Tuesday.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!” Cannon, 36, wrote on Instagram, accompanying a black-and-white photo of himself cradling a newborn. “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 is a former Miss Arizona USA and Miss Guam, who attended the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communications at Arizona State University. Cannon already is the father of 5-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, with his ex-wife, the Huntington-born and Greenlawn-raised pop star Mariah Carey.
