Nick Cannon has welcomed a new baby girl with his on-off model girlfriend, Brittany Bell. The 40-year-old TV host and his 33-year-old model lover announced they had become proud parents to a baby girl. Taking to Instagram on Christmas Day, Brittany shared the happy news – alongside a string of photographs of herself with Nick and their new daughter, named seemingly Powerful. One image showed Nick, Brittany, Powerful and the couple’s three-year-old son, Golden, gathered together, while other images showed Nick cradling his latest child.

And a further snap captured Nick and Brittany proudly showing off their newborn daughter together with the model leaning against the TV star following her water birth experience. Brittany wrote in the caption of the photos: “The best gift ever. We have been surprised with... A GIRL!”

Revealing the baby girl’s name, Brittany continued: “Powerful Queen Cannon came this week perfect timing for Christmas."

The model and Nick didn't explicitly reveal when Powerful had been born - however the batch of images was shared in the late evening of Christmas Day.

She continued: “So much more to share. All I can say is that Nick was my rock through the most intense yet empowering natural water birth. It was nothing but POWERFUL.”

Fans and followers were quick to congratulate the couple on their new arrival – with many responding: “Merry Christmas and congratulations”.

Nick and Miss Universe star Brittany reportedly began dating in 2015 but have endured something of an on-off status since 2017. Powerful and Golden are half-siblings to Nick’s other children – nine-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe Carey – from his past marriage to chart superstar Mariah Carey. The pair were married in April 2008 but split in 2014 – with their divorce finalised in 2016.
