Mike Tyson Is A Dad Again For The Eighth Time

Former heavyweight world champion boxer Mike Tyson became a father for the eight time yesterday (1/25).

Tyson has been expecting a child with his wife Lakiha Spicer Tyson, and both are overjoyed having welcomed a baby boy into the world.

“Mike and Lakiha are very happy and everyone is doing great,” a source said.

It is undecided what the name of the boy will be.  The couple also has a two-year-old daughter Milan together.

Mike has five other children from previous relationships with ex-girlfriends actress Robin Givens and Monica Turner – the children are Rayna, Amir, Mikey, Miguel and D’Mato.

The 44-year-old retired boxer — who became the youngest heavyweight champion of all time when he won his first title in 1986 — is thought to have earned over $300 million throughout his in-ring career, but in May last year claimed he was broke but happy with his position in life.

“I’m totally destitute and broke,” he said. “But I have an awesome life, I have an awesome wife who cares about me. I’m totally broke. I had a lot of fun. It just happened.

“I don’t deserve to have the wife that I have; I don’t deserve the kids that I have, but I do, and I’m very grateful.”

At least he seems humble.

Mike Tyson Hoping For A Fresh Start At Fatherhood

Mike Tyson sees the upcoming birth of his eighth child as a fresh start at fatherhood, insisting he will “do it right” this time.

The former boxer had two children with his second wife Monica Turner, but their four-year-old daughter Exodus died in a freak accident last year (09). He also has five other kids from previous relationships.

Tyson hopes his new baby with his current wife Lakiha Spicer will have a more stable upbringing than his previous children as he is in a happy relationship and finally free of a longrunning drug addiction – and he’s vowed to be a “committed and dedicated” dad.  He tells newsman Larry King,

“I’m just looking forward to trying to do this stuff right. Of course… I want to do it right… This is my third marriage
… You have to be committed and dedicated. This is going to be something new on me, to be totally committed and dedicated to this situation.”

The baby boy is due in February (11).
