Anyone have any idea what it is?

Everything about it, it's fern-like leaves (the leaves close/contract
when touched), and especially those pink fluffy flowers prove it's a
mimosa tree... attractive but can be messy/invasive. Many years ago I
had a mature one growing in my front yard... I do not recommend this
tree... I were you I'd immediately pluck it.

Thanks. It's currently in a large pot where a bird must have dropped a
seed. When it outgrows the pot, I'll get rid of it, don't want it
spreading. Maybe I should get it out of here anyway, before it spreads
it's seeds.

I'd keep it.
