  • American singer Ne-Yo has revealed on social media that he’s expecting his second child with wife Crystal Smith.

    Taking to Instagram, the Miss Independent hitmaker shared the happy news with his 2.4 million fans that he’s expecting his fourth child.


    Posting a picture of his three children – Mason Evan, Madilyn Grace and Shaffer – the artist included a question mark to represent the baby who’s on the way.

    Captioning the sweet snap, he wrote: ‘Sooooooo….. guess who’s awaiting a NEW ARRIVAL!?! @itscrystalsmith and yours truly are happy to announce we are expecting❤️! #NewAddition #ExtendingTheFamily’

    Speaking to E! News, the couple revealed their excitement to welcome another baby to their brood, and said they are yet to find out if they’re having a boy or a girl.

    ‘We are so excited!’, Ne-Yo’s wife Crystal said. ‘This definitely wasn’t in the plan and we weren’t trying at all!’

    The couple also said they were rooting for a little girl this time, and added they might keep trying until they get a baby girl.

    When asked if they were planning to have another baby after this one, Crystal said: ‘That completely depends on the gender of this one. If it’s a girl then the shop is closed but if it’s a boy then we have to do it again! I’ve been dreaming of the same little girl since I was a little girl and we won’t stop until we get her!’

    The couple are also well prepared when it comes to baby names, revealing that they’ve already picked what they want their little one to be called.

    ‘We have had names for our angels since before Shaffer Jr. was born so, yes, we are all set on baby names’, they said.

    Opening up about how her pregnancy is going so far, reality TV star Crystal revealed she’s managed to avoid any morning sickness.

    ‘Actually I haven’t really been sick at all but the cravings are real! All I want are raw oysters and steak! Which since becoming vegan has totally messed up my diet but as long as our miracle gets the nutrition it needs I will eat all the meat in the world!’, she said.

    Ne-Yo and Crystal tied the knot in February last year, and welcomed son Shaffer just three months later, in May.

    The 38-year-old dad also has two children from his previous relationship with Monyetta Shaw – daughter Madilyn Grace, who’s turning seven next month, and six-year-old son Mason Evan.

    Congratulations to the lovely couple!
