Ne-Yo is now a proud father of four! He and his wife Crystal Smith welcomed their second child together, a boy, on Thursday, June 14th. The couple had previously announced that they were having another child together back in October.
The crooner's wife made the official announcement on her Instagram account revealing the new baby's name and some birth details. They named the baby Roman Alexander Raj Smith, and he weighed in at6lbs and 15 ounces and was 19 inches long when he was born. In case you didn't know, Ne-Yo's real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, so that's where the little guy's last name came from.
ETOnline had the big news about the new addition for The World of Dance judge and reminded us of when Ne-Yo and his wife first made their big announcement. It's nice to see everything come full circle!
Ne-Yo also has two children from a previous relationship. He shares a 7-year-old-daughter, Madilyn, and 6-year-old son, Mason, with ex-girlfriend Moynetta Shaw. They broke up in 2013. Ne-Yo and his now-wife Crystal Smith met when Crystal was chosen to be in one of his videos. They got engaged and announced that they were expecting their first child in 2015. They were then married in 2016, shortly before their first son was born. Together, they also have a two-year-old son named Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr. It sounds like Roman is joining a large family with plenty of sibling love in his future!
Ne-Yo's wife took to Instagram just days after giving birth revealing that Roman's entrance was a bit dramatic. She said she went in for a routine check-up and when things weren't looking good, she was rushed into surgery and had Roman in less than an hour. That was definitely a shocking and scary situation, but we're so glad that Roman and his mom are doing well!
I had a ironclad birth plan and I was determined to do it my way. But God had other plans apparently 🤷🏽♀️ A routine doctors visit on Thursday and I was rushed straight to the hospital and into surgery less than a hour later! Roman wasn’t doing well in my womb and had to be taken immediately or the doctors feared the worst. Scariest moments ever!!! But he’s here and he’s healthy and we are so happy!!!!!! Thank you @neyo for giving me the one thing I’ve always longed for.. my very own family! I love you and these kids so much! #SmithGangGrows #KingRo🙌🏽🎉🎊 #BreastIsBest👏🏽 (can’t you tell I’m so happy rn😍) #TheQueenOfKings
We are so happy that Ne-Yo and his wife have welcomed their healthy little guy into the world. We wish these two the best of luck as they work together to parent their children!
