"Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning!" the tattooed America's Got Talent host captioned the sweet snap of himself, shirtless, cuddling the newborn to his chest.

The birth of baby Golden brings much joy to a rough week for Cannon. No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our goal #TrueHappiness Welcome to Earth Son!

"Welcome to Earth Son", he added along with the hashtags "#TrueHappiness" and "#Awakened".

Cannon, 36, shared the happy news with a photo of him cradling his new little one on Instagram.

This is Cannon's third child.

Cannon shares Golden Cannon with his ex-girlfriend, Brittany Bell. Cannon is already the dad of twins Monroe and Moroccan, 5, with ex-wife Mariah Carey.

Rumors first swirled in November that the former Miss Universe Guam was pregnant with Nick Cannon's baby. "God said be fruitful and multiply. I'm passing them out".

Indeed, a source tells Us that Cannon is over the moon.

The 36-year-old will have plenty of spare time to spend with the newborn as Golden's birth comes days after he declared he was quitting his role as host of US reality show America's Got Talent, a job he's held for the past eight seasons.

Quitting the show that made him a household name (or least something other than Mariah Carey's Husband) may be hard and sad, but the birth of his son is certainly something to celebrate.
