yakiri (male), or yakirati (female)


Explanation:
And it means "my darling". In Hebrew, the word "darling" is not used by itself, but usually with my/our/your. Unless you go for "motek" which is more like "honey" in English.
So your whole sentence will be: yesh lanu ben, yakiri! (addressing a male) or yesh lanu ben, yakirati! (addressing a female).
