Meet NE-YO & Crystal Smith's Adorable New Baby!
Singer NE-YO and his wife Crystal Smith are introducing their new baby Roman Alexander-Raj Smith to the world... less than three days after his birth!
On Saturday, Crystal posted pics of Roman to Instagram Stories, writing, "He's so BEAUTIFUL" and declaring herself "Blessed."
A touching image of Roman snuggled on his dad's bare chest was labeled "Skin to skin."
The happy images follow a scary birth experience, as related by Crystal on Instagram Friday: "I had a ironclad birth plan and I was determined to do it my way. But God had other plans apparently. A routine doctors visit on Thursday and I was rushed straight to the hospital and surgery less than a hour later! Roman wasn't doing well in my womb and had to be taken immediately or the doctors feared the worst. Scariest moments ever!!! But he's here and he's healthy and we are so happy!!!!!!"
Crystal had also had complications during her first pregnancy, which resulted in a cesarean section.
The proud mom was so touched by the entire experience, she also gushed to her hubby, "Thank you @neyo for giving me the one thing I've always longed for.. my very own family! I love you and these kids so much. #SmithGangGrows #KingRo#BreastIsBest (can't you tell I'm so happy rn).”
