It’s a girl for R&B superstar Ne-Yo and his actress girlfriend Monyetta Shaw!
Ne-Yo and Monyetta welcomed their baby girl earlier than expected on Friday, November 12th, in an Atlanta hospital.
The proud daddy tweeted Saturday about the birth of his daughter:
“Salutations all. As my life transforms due to the new life that sprung up on me last night, it’s good to know my folks support. She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in love for the first time.”
“I’ve been in love before, but it is unlike anything I have ever felt. It’s as if I were in love for the first time.”
“Welcoming that little girl to the world last night defined for me what “willing to kill and die for” truly means. My world, my life, all hers.”
Monyetta was originally due to give birth in January.
A source says that baby Madilyn Grace Smith was born at 4lbs.2oz — nearly six weeks earlier than expected.
The singer was reportedly at a charity event for his Ne-Yo Foundation when he got the call that Shaw went into labor. He luckily managed to get to the hospital to witness the birth of his daughter.
On Sunday, November 14, a baby shower was held for singer Ne-Yo’s newborn daughter Madilyn Grace Smith, who was born in an Atlanta hospital on Friday, November 12th. The shower was held at one of Atlanta’s prestigious hotels, The Mansion on Peachtree. According to sources at the party, Monyetta did not attend the festivities.
Photos from the baby shower are after the jump….
Note: Ne-Yo’s album, ‘Libra Scale’, will hit stores on November 22.
“Congrats to the happy couple. Girls are so precious. I have a little princess myself and I wouldn’t change her for the world.”
