Mike Tyson is ready for another round of fatherhood.

The former heavyweight champ and wife Lakiha Spicer welcomed their second child together Tuesday, son Morocco Elijah Tyson—a relative lightweight at 8 pounds.

Morocco was born at a hospital in Henderson, Nev.

"He is such a sweet and calm baby," Tyson's publicist, Tammy Brook, tells E! News. "Mike and Kiki are overwhelmed with joy to welcome their son to the Tyson family."

It's a bright spot in what's been a trying couple of years for the ex-fighter, even for him.

In 2009, Tyson's 4-year-old daughter Exodus died in a tragic accident at the family's home. She was Tyson's daughter with ex-girlfriend Sol Xochitl.

He and Spicer, his third wife, are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Milan. Tyson has fathered eight kids over the years.
