Ne-Yo’s wife, Crystal Smith, is asking for prayers for their unborn child. The reality star took to her Instagram on Monday after being rushed to the emergency room for an undisclosed condition. Crystal shared some videos from the hospital as well as some sweet words to her unborn baby.
She wrote, “I will be strong for the both of us cause heaven is just going to have to wait for you. I’m not ready and I won’t be for many years to come. If I could split my heart in half to share with you then it would be done already. Mommy loves you and has enough faith to move mountains. My angel on earth. Stay baking in Gods oven because it’s not time just yet. Simply Asking for my prayer warriors right now.”
Ne-Yo and Crystal Smith announced in February that they are expecting their third child together.
“Overjoyed to announce… the family is expanding,” Ne-Yo wrote on Instagram on Sunday (Feb. 21). “You ready baby? Let’s go!”
Prior to sharing the baby news, the musician wrote a sweet tribute to his wife on their 6th anniversary. The couple, who tied the knot on February 20, 2016, were on the verge of getting a divorce last year, but decided to reconcile during quarantine.
Ne-YO shared in his tribute, “Today marks 6 years of marriage. It has been a bumpy beautiful, tragically terrific ride full of twists n’ turns, up’s n’ down’s…and I wouldn’t have it any other way. We’ve grown so much. With the understanding that we’ve still got some growing to do of course, I have to acknowledge how far we’ve come. I think once we both realized that marriage isn’t ownership…but partnership, we found our tempo, our melody. And now we’ve become a beautiful harmony. I pray we sing this song forever.”
Adding, “To my other half, my Lovely, my muth$%@^’ homie, my rock, my partner, my forever. HAPPY 6 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! You fell in love with a songwriter, so the words come easy and can be mistaken for pacification. But I love you like lungs love oxygen. So I’m gonna SHOW YOU as often as humanly possible.”
Ne-Yo and Crystal are already proud parents to Roman Alexander-Raj, 2, and 6-year-old Shaffer Chimere Jr. Ne-Yo, born Shaffer Chimere Smith, also has Mason Evan, 9, and Madilyn Grace, 10, from a previous relationship.
