Former boxing champ Mike Tyson became a father again for the eighth time yesterday. He and wife Lakiha Spicer Tyson welcomed a baby boy but have not yet released his name.

A source close to the family said: “Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great.” The couple also have a two-year-old daughter Milan.

In May 2009 tragedy struck for Mike when his 4-year-old daughter Exodus died. The accident occurred after a cord from an exercise machine got wrapped around her neck. That story here. Mike and Lakiha were married ten days after the girl’s death.

Tyson was a guest on The View last year and spoke about his money problems, stating that he has been forced to live from paycheck to paycheck. Although he admitted that he is virtually destitute, he claims that he remains positive about life. He admits he had a great time and isn’t sure where all his money went.

Tyson’s other children include: Rayna, Amir, Mikey, Miguel, D’Mato and Milan.
