According to celebrity blogger Tami of Talkingwithtami.com, singer/songwriter Ne-Yo and his
fiancée bestie, Monyetta Shaw, delivered a baby girl on Friday (Nov. 12). Congrats to them!
According to People.com, the baby's name is Madelyn Grace Smith, and she already has a nickname: it's "Maddie" for short.
Monyetta's baby shower was scheduled for today -- and I was told that she did not attend.
From what I understand (from People.com), Maddie is 2 months premature, which means she can't breathe on her own and requires a ventilator to assist her breathing. She will remain in neonatal intensive care at least until she is able to breathe on her own -- and that's if she has no other medical complications.
That is sad news for Ne-Yo and his bestie, Monyetta. Rumor has it that Ne-Yo and Monyetta have an agreement. Sort of like a surrogate mom.
Anyway, Monyetta used the loot to open a high end clothing boutique in Buckhead. I don't care what anyone says about Monyetta: she's a smart cookie for thinking long term and investing that money in a business.
Maddie's birth - which wasn't expected for another 2 months -- occurred while Ne-Yo was hosting an exclusive private shopping event at David Yurman's jewelry boutique inside the upscale Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta on Friday.
According to Tami:
Ne-Yo welcomed everyone but stated that he couldn’t stay long because his fiancée was in labor. Later I found out he had a baby girl, congrats to Neyo and Monyetta! The event was a success and for a good cause!
