Ne-Yo and Girlfriend Welcome Second Child

Just a month after announcing he and his girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, were expecting their second child together, a rep for Ne-Yo confirmed to that the pair welcomed a child Monday.

Further details about the baby were not available, but Ne-Yo has always been open about his love of being a dad. “[My daughter] definitely knows her worth, which is a beautiful thing. That’s something I’ve tried to instill in her from day one: understand that you are a Godsend,” Ne-Yo said of the values he’s teaching his kids. “You’re an absolute angel, and people are supposed to treat you that way. She’s extremely diva even at 10 months.”

Ne-Yo (born Shaffer Chimere Smith) welcomed his first child, daughter Madilyn Grace, back in November 2010 and was ecstatic about becoming a father. “Feels like I’m in luv for the first time,” he tweeted at the time. “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.”
