It’s a girl!

Nick Cannon has welcomed his ninth child.

This is the host’s first child with model LaNisha Cole.

The couple confirmed the birth of their baby girl by posting a photo of new mum Lanisha and Cannon cradling their daughter.

Nick confirmed their baby girl is called Onyx Ice Cole Cannon.

“Once again Today I am in Awe of the Devine Feminine!”

“God has given me and @MissLanishaCole the privilege of hosting an Angel here on earth.

“I vow to protect, provide, guide, and love this child to the best of my abilities.”

Cannon continued, “I promise to love this little girl with all my heart, regardless of what anyone says.”

He added, “I’ve given up on attempting to define myself for the world or society but instead I’m doing the work to heal and grow into the infinite Being God ordained me to be.”

The dad promised to protect his daughter from “shame” and won’t let others “ridicule her with their outside opinions”.

Cannon urged the public to stop projecting criticism toward the mothers of his children but to instead focus on him.

“Lanisha is one of the most guileless, peaceful, and nonconfrontational kind souls I’ve ever witnessed.

He said she “only deserves to revel in this moment of blissful joy of motherhood”.

“Please give her that. She is so loving and pure-hearted,” he stressed.

Baby Onyx is Cannon’s ninth child.

He shares 11-year-old twins with his ex Mariah Carey.

The presenter shares a 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter with model Brittany Bell. They’re also expecting their third child together later this year.

Cannon also shares twin sons Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa. She is also pregnant with her third child, who may be Cannon’s child too.

Cannon also has a baby boy with model Bre Tiesi.

Alyssa Scott and Cannon welcomed a son together, but their baby Zen sadly died from brain cancer when he was only 5 months old.
