Congratulations to Ne-Yo (born Shaffer Chimere Smith) and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw, who reportedly welcomed a baby girl on Friday, November 12.
According to AllHipHop.com, Ne-Yo was performing at a charity event for his foundation when he received word that Monyetta had gone into labor early – their baby wasn’t due until the end of the year. The new dad apparently made it to the Atlanta hospital in time to see his daughter’s arrival. Further details have yet to be released.
The baby is the first for the Miss Independent singer, who gushed earlier this year that he was “very, very, very excited” to become a father.
