Mike Tyson has become a father for an eighth time.

According to People, the boxer, 44, and wife Lakiha Spicer Tyson, 32, have welcomed a new baby boy.

Morocco Elijah Tyson was born on Tuesday and weighed in at 8 lbs. and 13 oz., and measured 19 inches in length, his rep told the mag.

The former heavyweight champion married Lakiha in 2009, two weeks after the death of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, who died in a tragic accident.

As previously reportedly on AccessHollywood.com, in May 2009, Exodus was injured in her Phoenix home when she either slipped or put her head in the loop of a cord hanging under a treadmill’s console and was suffocated.

The boxer will make another cameo as himself in “The Hangover 2,” which hits theaters on May 26, 2011. He is also appearing in a new Animal Planet six-part documentary, “Taking on Tyson” – premiering on March 6 – which chronicles his pigeon racing hobby.
