UFC welterweight Mike Perry and girlfriend Latory Gonzalez have become parents as they welcomed a baby boy to the world this week. The 29-year-old made the announcement on Wednesday morning on Twitter, thanking the doctors and nurses of the Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami. In the tweet, Mike Perry also revealed that his son gave them a brief “scare” as the baby had trouble breathing upon delivery.

“(The) boy gave us a scare when he came out and didn’t want to take his first breath but thank God for our son!” wrote The Platinum.
