London: Boxing legend Mike Tyson has welcomed his eighth child, a healthy baby boy, who was born in a Las Vegas hospital Tuesday.

The boy is the second child of the former heavyweight champion and his wife Lakiha.

"Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great," dailymail.co.uk quoted a source close to the boxer as saying.

The couple, parents of two-year-old Milan, have not named their new addition yet.

The good news came in just 18 months after the tragic death of Tyson`s daughter Exodus, who was four.

Apart from the new born and Milan, Tyson is also father to five other children - Rayna, Amir, Mikey, Miguel and D`Mato.

Tyson was earlier married to actress Robin Givens (1988), and Monica Turner (1997).
