After welcoming their first child together earlier this week, Ne-Yo and wife Crystal Renay have shown off their son, Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr, on social media.
First up, Ne-Yo took to Instagram and shared a photo of the baby. It’s his third child — he has two others from a previous relationship with former fiancee, Monyetta Shaw.
“Welcome to the world lil’ man. (HA! Mason’s a big brother now,” Ne-Yo wrote. “You got a BIG family lookin’ out for you, immediate AND extended. And we all love you to death. Gonna do EVERYTHING in my power to make sure ALL my children never need for anything EVER. @iamcrystalrenay I love you lovely. Thank you for this amazing gift!”
Renay adds that she’s grateful for her small miracle, even adding an Instagram photo of her son’s face. “Allow me to introduce to you all Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr! I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS LIL MAN! Now I know what it means to have your heart walk around outside of your body,” she wrote. “THANK YOU @neyo for the greatest gift in the world! Love you to the moon and back daddy! #HeIsPERFECT #PrinceSJ #Everythang!”
The pair welcomed their baby boy Tuesday night. The bundle of joy — 6 lbs, 8oz and 19 inches long — comes just a month after the couple married in Los Angeles.
