As dads go, chart-topper Ne-Yo has got to be one of the coolest. One of our favourite singers tweeted this week to welcome his second child into the world! The singer’s girlfriend Monyetta Shaw gave birth to the baby boy who they have chosen to name Mason Evan Smith. Awwww.
Ne-Yo (whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith) tweeted all the details of his newborn son,
‘If you are truly fam, you'll help me welcome the heir to my throne. Born Oct. 9, 6 pounds, 10 oz!’
Mason is the couple’s second child, as Monyetta gave birth to their daughter, Madilyn Grace, back in 2010. We’re sure that not only will Madilyn and Mason have some talented musical genes, they’ll also be kitted out with some high fashion clobber, as mummy Monyetta co-owns a newly opened boutique, Emerlyn & Ester.
31 Year old Ne-yo was following tradition by tweeting about the birth of Mason, as he also tweeted after the birth of Madilyn,
"Feels like I'm in luv for the first time," "Welcoming that lil' girl to the world last night defined for me what 'willing to kill and die for' truly means. My world, my life, all hers."
How sweet. First Hilary Duff and now Ne-Yo, and with next year’s celeb babies being born from such families as Una Healy and Beyonce, we’re preparing ourselves for a new generation of what could be some very talented tots.
