Happy Birthday Mason! The son of Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw celebrated his fifth birthday on Sunday with mom, dad, and big sister Madilyn by his side. Ne-Yo and Monyetta shared pictures of their son during his celebration and commented on the joys of co-parenting.
“These faces right here makes it all worth it,” Monyetta shared along with a picture of her and the kids on Instagram. “No matter what THEY come 1st,” Shaw exclaimed. “No matter how it feels, anyone’s opinion or what it looks like! It will 4ever be #BiggerThanMe (bigger than us),” she added.
The celebrity mom went on to tell fans, “God is amazing. I am here to tell you that he delivers, restores and he knows what’s best for you! Just hold on to your faith, be the strong individual that you are, and keep moving forward… do not stop going!!! If not for you… do it for your KIDS! Trust me there is light on the other side! This is my testimony!!!!”
Ne-Yo also commented on the common ground that he and Monyetta share when it comes to the kids. “We don’t always see eye to eye on everything and that’s normal,” he explained. “We’re human beings. But we come together and do it right for what’s important, the kids. We are not enemies, we are parents. And we are parents 1st. S/O to @monyettashaw for making Mason’s bday memorable. S/O to @itscrystalsmith at home taking care of our other lil’ Prince. THIS IS WHAT CO-PARENTING LOOKS LIKE.”
Ne-Yo is the proud father of three children. The producer welcomed his youngest son, Shaffer Jr., in March. “It was the scariest delivery ever,” Ne-Yo’s wife, Crystal Renay, shared. “I ended up getting a emergency c-section cause of complications but with the help of my amazing doctor Sheryl Ross and my super calming husband NE-YO I was able to get through it all and come out with best reward in the world.”
Madilyn and Mason are the same age for a short time period. The only daughter of Ne-Yo will celebrate her sixth birthday next month.
