Ne-Yo to become a father of four
Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Smith are about to welcome their second child together. The R&B singer has announced on Wednesday (Oct. 25) that his wife Crystal is pregnant and that soon little son Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr., born in 2016, will have a sibling.
“Sooooooo….. guess whos awaiting a NEW ARRIVAL!?!,” he posted on Instagram on Wednesday (25Oct17). “@itscrystalsmith and yours truly are happy to announce we are expecting! #NewAddition #ExtendingTheFamily (sic)”.
Ne-Yo – real name Shaffer Chimere Smith – has two other children with ex-fiancée Monyetta Shaw: daughter Madilyn Grace and son Mason Evan. In her book “Bigger Than Me,” released last year, Shaw said that she got her tubes tied after Madilyn’s birth, and Ne-Yo agreed to get a vasectomy “to show our mutual commitment to the relationship.”
On the other hand, Crystal has admitted the baby news came as a pleasant surprise for the couple, sharing to E!News “We are so excited! This definitely wasn’t in the plan and we weren’t trying at all!”
