Ne-Yo Engaged, Expecting Baby

Expecting baby number 2 any day now.

The musician known as Ne-Yo is engaged and expecting a second child.

The “Closer” singer, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, and his longtime girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, are engaged and expecting their second child together.

Us Weekly has confirmed the news that baby number two is due very soon. Like, October.

The 31-year-old rapper became a first-time dad in November 2010, when Shaw gave birth to daughter Madilyn Grace.

As Us Weekly reports, Ne-Yo was over the moon 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.”

Wonder if they plan to get hitched in a quickie wedding before baby is born or wait until after to have a larger affair? Regardless, congratulations to the happy couple.
