Ne-Yo fans got some surprisingly good news when it was announced that the R&B singer and his longtime girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, were expecting their second child together. And with the child’s birth expected in just a few weeks, Ne-Yo has now revealed the sex of their baby.
While on the red carpet at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Atlanta Legends dinner on Sept. 28, Ne-Yo spoke with UPTOWN magazine about the effect that fatherhood has had on his music and revealed that he and Shaw are expecting a baby boy.
“I’ve always prided myself on being able to make music that everybody can listen to and that’s not gon’ change. That’s just reinforced now that I have a little girl and a little boy on the way. Yeah, I’m doing the same thing I’ve been doing,” he said.
The award-winning singer is currently at work on his fifth studio album, Love & Passion, the follow-up to last year’s Libra Scale. –nicholas robinson
