Double the congratulations to Ne-Yo!
The R&B superstar is set to be a father again — and he’s getting married! A rep for the 31-year-old Closer singer tells Us Weekly that he and longtime girlfriend, Atlanta boutique owner Monyetta Shaw, are engaged and expecting their second child together.
Ne-Yo (real name: Shaffer Chimere Smith) became a first-time dad in November 2010, when Shaw gave birth to daughter Madilyn Grace.
According to a source, their second child is due next month!
As she awaits the arrival of baby No. 2, Shaw is already hard at work opening Emaralyn and Ester, a new boutique in Atlanta’s Buckhead district.
Ne-Yo was tickled pink 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.”
