R&B crooner Ne-Yo is trading sold-out concerts for diaper duty!
Both Monyetta Shaw and Ne-Yo have been dating for a while now and are now very happy with the news that Shaw is pregnant. Rumor has it that she’s been wanting a child for a long time now.
They are very excited to know whether they are going to have baby boy or baby girl.
The “Miss Independent” singer tells Ebony Magazine he is expecting his first child. He tells the magazine that he recently flew home to Atlanta to be with his girlfriend during her first ultrasound.
“I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I am very, very, very excited about that,” Ne-Yo says, joking that his firstborn will be “stubborn.”
His girlfriend, actress Monyetta Shaw, is due to give birth in early January 2011.
“It’s a New Year’s baby,” Ne-Yo — whose new album, ‘Libra Scale’ is set for Sept. 21 release — tells the magazine. “I’m just in a really good place right now.”
Although this is his first child, Ne-Yo did get tangled in some baby drama back in 2005 when his then-girlfriend. Ne-Yo had relationship with his ex-girl friend and she gave a birth to baby boy, naming him Chimere after Ne-Yo’s middle name. Later, that was stunning news that he is not the father of that baby boy. This caused them to split there after. He is now in litigation with the child’s mother.
“I’m not allowed to talk about it, and I’m not allowed to see [Chimere],” Ne-Yo told USA Today in 2008.
The R&B singer is most recognizable for his appearance on 50 Cent‘s 2009 hit, ‘Baby By Me.’
