Congratulations are in order for Ne-Yo as the R&B singer is reportedly off the market. On Saturday, Feb. 20, “The Wiz Live” star married Crystal Renay, who is more than eight months pregnant with their first child together and his third overall, at a venue near Los Angeles, Calif.


“We can’t wait to start our life together,” Ne-Yo told People. “We’re looking forward to just being each others’ best friend.” The duo began dating shortly after meeting for a possible collaboration for his 2015 album “Non-Fiction.” It was then, the Grammy winner knew they had a connection – something about her was special. “I kind of knew right away,” he says, adding, “From that first encounter, I knew there was something different about her, something special.” Fast forward one year and the 36-year-old announced he had popped the question, with plans to wed the following year, tweeting:


Although there were very few details surrounding their pending nuptials, late last year Ne-Yo told E! News that “I am basically just going to show up in a tux and stand there and say my ‘I do’s.'” Meanwhile, Renay has “been extremely hands on with the preparation of the wedding.”

Earlier this month, Renay posted an adorable snap of Ne-Yo cuddling up to her bare baby bump. “Now I understand why Nothing else ever worked in my favor. You are the man I’ve dreamed of and you have given me the family My heart has longed for. The amount of love I have for you and our son is insurmountable and I am going to spend the rest of my life showing you that love… @Neyo #j3collection #16days,” she wrote.


This is Renay’s first marriage and the second for the “So Sick” singer who is already dad to daughter Madilyn Grace, 5, and son Mason Evan, 4, from a previous relationship. Show them some love in the comment section below.
