Congrats, Ne-Yo and Crystal! The couple welcomed their first child together, a boy.
Crystal Renay took to Instagram to share the announcement, along with their son’s name.
Prince Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr has arrived! 6lbs 8oz, 19 inches it was the scariest delivery ever and I ended up getting a emergency C-section cause of complications but with the help of my amazing doctor @drsherryr and my super calming husband @neyo I was able to get through it all and come out with best reward in the world… SJ!!!!! #BestDayOfMyLife
We’re glad mommy and baby made it through delivery okay and we look forward to more pics of the little guy.
