The father of eight opened up about his newborn in a heartfelt post

Nick Cannon is elated at the birth of son Legendary Love.

On Tuesday night, the Wild N' Out host, 41, made his first Instagram post announcing the birth of his baby boy. The post came shortly after model Bre Tiesi announced the birth of their first child together by sharing a series of emotional photos from her "all natural unmedicated home birth" as well as a video on YouTube documenting her "pregnancy, natural induction, labor and delivery."

In his post, Cannon, Tiesi and Legendary wear matching white sweatsuits and pose in front of a balloon arrangement spelling out the newborn's name. "LEGENDARY LOVE CANNON!!!! Y'all gonna need a wide screen for this name!!!" the proud dad wrote.

"So grateful to God The Most High Elohim YAWEH for a Healthy, Happy and Harmonious Spirit having a Human Experience!! ❤️🙏🏾."
