Mike Tyson & Wife Welcome A Son!

Mike Tyson is a daddy for the eighth time!

According to RadarOnline.com, the 44-year-old former boxer and his wife, Lakiha Spicer Tyson, welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday (January 25).

“Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great,” says a source close to the family. No word yet on a name!

This is the first child for the 44-year-old heavyweight champ since the tragic loss of his 4-year-old daughter Exodus who died in May 2009 after becoming entangled in the cord of a treadmill in the family’s Phoenix home.

Tyson and his wife, who were married just 10 days after the incident, are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Milan. The Brooklyn native has five other children from previous relationships: Rayna, Amir, Mikey, Miguel and D’Mato.

The couple announced their pregnancy in September.

Congratulations to Mike and Lakiha!

    Ugh. Every time I hear about that story, I can’t help but just cry for that family and that little girl 🙁 I can’t even imagine how that can happen. Or having to find her there. AHH. It’s just too much. What a wonderful blessing that this family brought a new baby into the world. I wish them all the best.

    And for the record… Really? “exodus and d mato awful names” What an idiotic thing to say.

    Congrats and everything, but I can’t believe they got married just ten days after his little girl died!

    Sophia: until you have experienced grief such as theirs, (and i hope i never do) please don’t judge their decision making at such a difficult time. It may have been the case that her death brought them closer, or that they had always planned to marry and Exodus’ death made them realise life is too short to wait. that’s just off the top of my head. either way, i don’t think we are in any position to judge! Everybody deals with grief in different and sometimes unpredictable ways, after all – i’ve seen it and it affects every family differently.
    Congratulations on their new arrival x
