    Maddie & Mason look lots like Neyo because Monyetta looked like his cousin… But congrats to them on Junior. He is precious.

    He’s a beautiful baby. Looks nothing like Neyo. Crystal has some strong genes.

    Amen.. Marilyn, I also don’t like naming a Second son Junior, just a lil disrespectful to your first son. Handsome baby, looks nothing like Neyo.
