Ne-yo has revealed that he and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw are expecting a baby boy! The singer shared the happy news while on the red carpet for the ASCAP Rhythm& Soul Atlanta Legends Dinner event last night.
When asked if fatherhood has affected the type of music he makes, he said to Uptownmagazine, “I’ve always prided myself on being able to make music that everybody can listen to and that’s not [going] change. That’s just reinforced now that I have a little girl and a little boy on the way. Yeah I’m doing the same thing I’ve been doing.”
Ne-Yo (real name: Shaffer Chimere Smith) welcomed his first child, a daughter named Madilyn Grace Smith, in November of last year.
The superstar was more than elated when Madilyn was born last fall. “She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in luv for the first time,” he tweeted. “Welcoming that lil’ girl to the world last night defined for me what ‘willing to kill and die for’ truly means. My world, my life, all hers.”
