Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal are now the proud parents of a new baby boy.
While their bundle of joy wasn’t actually scheduled to arrive until a later date, new mom Crystal shared that her son and God had other plans. Taking to social media on Saturday afternoon, Mrs. Smith gave a detailed description of her challenging delivery experience, but reassured fans that baby Roman Alexander-Raj Smith thankfully arrived happy and healthy on Thursday, June 14.
“I had a ironclad birth plan and I was determined to do it my way,” Crystl wrote in a caption accompanying a photo of herself and her little one on her Instagram page. “But God had other plans apparently. A routine doctors visit on Thursday and I was rushed straight to the hospital and into surgery less than a hour later!”
Proud dad Ne-Yo also took to his Instagram to celebrate the news, sharing a heartfelt photo of himself and his youngest son on Father’s Day.
Baby Ro is Crystal and Ne-Yo’s second child together, joining big brother Shaffer, whom the couple welcomed in 2016, along with big brother Mason and big sister Madilyn, whom Ne-Yo shares with ex-fiancee Monyetta Shaw.
Congratulations to the Smiths on their very special Father’s Day surprise!
