Last night, singer Ne-Yo hit the red carpet for the BET awards without his wife, Crystal Smith, who was home with their second child.
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway and Tanika Ray caught up with Ne-Yo, who opened up about his baby boy Roman A. Smith. Of Crystal’s absence, he said, “My date is at home tending to my 9-day-old child.”
My perfect lil #TBT! A week ago today God have me the most precious gift ever. I began to change Since the beginning of my pregnancy , the sense of calm that has come over me and my emotions is all due to Him! I feel more connected to this perfect little angel than I have anyone in my life. Don’t get me wrong SJ is the apple of my eye and no one will ever take the love I have or the place of my first born but it’s something so spiritual (and painful 🤨) about breastfeeding. I can’t really explain the connection. I wish I could keep him to myself forever 🤗 He May be daddy’s baby twin 🙄 @neyo but Roman is MINE 😍🤗 Hello world!!! I hope you’re ready for #RomanAlexanderRajSmith!!! P.s He has green eyes 🙌🏽 #TheQueenOfKings 👑 #WeMakeSomePrettyBabies @neyo
Ne-Yo also made it clear that he takes daddy duty very seriously, saying, “I'm a diaper-changing ninja, brother.”
When Tanika asked if he could swaddle, the “World of Dance” judge confidently replied, “My swaddle skills are on-point.”
They are also the parents of Shaffer Chimere Jr., 2. Ne-Yo has two kids from a prior relationship with Monyetta Shaw — his daughter Madilyn Grace, 7, and his son Mason Evan, 6.
