Ne-Yo & Crystal Renay

Ne-Yo is expecting his 4th child with his current wife Crystal Renay. The singer/songwriter, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, announced the baby news on Instagram.com on Wednesday.

Crystal is pregnant with the couple’s second child, a sibling for toddler son Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr., who was born in March, 2016.

“Sooooooo….. guess who’s awaiting a NEW ARRIVAL!?!,” Ne-Yo, 38, posted. “@itscrystalsmith and yours truly are happy to announce we are expecting! #NewAddition #ExtendingTheFamily [sic]”.

Ne-Yo’s big news was accompanied by a photo collage featuring images of his baby boy and his two elder children, son Mason Evan and daughter Madilyn Grace, from his relationship with ex-fiancee Monyetta Shaw, who is reportedly now in a lesbian relationship.

Crystal has since admitted the baby news came as a pleasant surprise for the couple.

“We are so excited!” she shared to E! News. “This definitely wasn’t in the plan and we weren’t trying at all!”

Crystal Renay

The mother-to-be was lucky to avoid the usual morning sickness during her first trimester, but she has since ditched her recently-adopted vegan diet due to her strong pregnancy cravings.

“I haven’t really been sick at all but the cravings are real!” she laughed. “All I want are raw oysters and steak! Which since becoming vegan has totally messed up my diet, but as long as our miracle gets the nutrition it needs I will eat all the meat in the world!”

    I’m still pissed at his shitty album I purchased. I think it was called the champagne room or something. This was a few years ago. Anyhow the album was garbage and I want my money back!! ???

  • Marlika

    She does! It’s like she’s trying to hard. And he did Moneyetta dirty!! That another reason why he’s a piece of shit!! ?

  • Keisha Hannah

  • BaileyBlue17

    RAW seafood plus pregnant equals NO BUENO!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh so now he wants to procreate after making the other baby mama get fixed.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I never got the whole Ne-Yo thing!!

  • MsPam

    She’s lying about it wasn’t planned! I went to her Instagram page and on Neyo’s birthday she said #I’m going to make SJr a big brother as she’s bent over and Neyo is rubbing his private parts on her.

  • stav

    YUCK!

  • RaginB

    I still think Ne-Yo might be gay. ?????

  • You Could Never

    we weren’t trying at all
    ^^^^^^^^^^

  • Toni Wiggins-Sorzano

    I can tell stand this child. At all. Blah

  • Wreckognize Game

    I was crazy about the Lazy Love song because of the video going hard. Just wish he would’ve used a sexy man not himself.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Awww… Hey Crystal!

  • Wreckognize Game

    Really clever. I see you?

  • Noirluv45

    Yep, according to my calculations, that’s how it works.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    His wife is THIRSTY for attention, you hear me! She’s parched!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Yea. I’ll never look at him the same.

  • nick c

    I bust out laughing when people tell me they have “unplanned” pregnancies, i don’t get why they try so hard to fake the funk. I usually get the “we been doing it like this for years but it didn’t happen till now” OK???

  • TxCyn

    She’s looks much better covered up….

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Have you seen her behavior?!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    It’s the attitude. Hers is terrible!

  • NicoleZee

    Monyetta is even more beautiful in person. She’s a really nice lady, very humble and polite. So many of these stank attitude celebs are terrible to meet, but Monyetta and Ne-Yo are nice people and seem very genuine.

  • NicoleZee

    I think you have to be ovulating for a baby to actually happen, or not, who knows. You can have unprotected sex a million times and never get pregnant. Some women are more fertile than others though. Some women are very healthy and it takes them years to get pregnant, others get pregnant every time they lay down, and then some women can’t get pregnant at all. The human body is one big mystery half the time. Take it from me, if a doctor tells you you can’t get pregnant, don’t believe that shit, their dumb as f*ck because half the time when they say that, a baby happens!!! Last time I checked, God is STILL in control, not these dumb brained cocky doctors!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Exactly. If u r f*ckin without birth control or condoms then…

  • WutizaGRANNY!
  • pure_rachet

    Yes what a “miracle” still getting the gays from him

  • Decked Out

    Yes, photos don’t do her any Justice. She is Beautiful in person in – and – out. Ne-Yo is weird and maybe a great thang he is gone out of Monyetta’s Life.

  • Ro

    who cares dont Nobody else want him

  • pure_rachet

    You haven’t watched the platinum life!

  • CaramelDream

    I don’t care how many women he marries or how many children he has, Neyo is gay or the least bi-sexual.

  • WutizaGRANNY!
  • Renee26

    Her green dress is cute

    Neyo is gay

  • Renee26

    Spill the tea…I haven’t

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    how does she lay next to that head. ugh.

  • pure_rachet

    She’s obnoxious and seems ghetto on ep 1. I’ll check the 2 nd ep after work

  • Renee26

    Oh, it’s a new show…I guess I’ll tune in to see what it’s about

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    His beards dress is cute

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    “Not trying at all” well, were they using protection? Does she not know how this happens?

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    That’s funny too cuz he already has siblings. Ne-yo has 2 other kids.

  • Chocolate

    if gabby n wade tossing salads then I know this poor woman has ? for breath. Literally.
    And his ex is now all of a sudden gay- sure!

  • Chocolate

    Lmao!

  • Chocolate

    Eww!
    They are trying too hard
    What a charade

  • imright

    i want to be mad at Neyo about Monyettas tubal ligation but ultimately it was HER CHOICE ??

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I haven’t seen that one ??,but I did see a show a couple years ago with her on it. Eva Marcille was also on that show. Neyo’s wife’s attitude was absolutely HORRENDOUS! She’s a teen stuck in a grown ups body.

  • Tay Gee

    These comments are the exact reason men don’t come out. Half of you say, I don’t like DL men, just be who you are, yada-yada-yada. But you criticize “gay men” like no other when they are out and proud. So you have a man who says he’s straight, lives a hetero-normal life with a wife and kids, but yet and still y’all calling him gay anyway? That makes no sense, so if you out the closet and comfortable it’s a problem, if you in the closet but tip and dip it’s a problem too, lol. Seems like a lose, lose situation to me. I hope you can see why it’s so hard for people to come out be themselves, just look at the comments in this post. smh

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    That second pic up top… Girrrrrrrl!!! Why you gotta purse your lips like that tho?!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I said this the other day. I was watching the platinum life and she is not cute.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Definitely!

    She’s soaking up this spotlight. Didn’t she have a flick too? ???

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Yeah, everytime I see him….I see that, what he did….No respect…

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Sandra want everybody to be gay.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Money….

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    LOL

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    It seems the only criticism is because allegedly he’s living a LIE> I truly believe once he comes out errybody will leave him alone and be happy that’s he gay.

  • Toody Young

    My Grandma use to tell us the bible says to testify those things you know. Man listen that man is gay or bi sexual like you said. I just doubt that I’m wrong.

  • BorgQueen

    Man I came on here to bitch about her ligation. Actually it was THEIR decision bc he didn’t want anymore and Moyetta thought they were getting married. That was not right for him to ask for such an extreme birth control method only for him to leave and have 2 more kids while Monyetta is forever stuck with only his kids. She wanted more and can never have them.

  • Tay Gee

    Leave him alone… Do you really believe that? lol

  • xenaD

    ???

  • Tay Gee

    It’s the most confusing thing in our culture. A religious person would argue the being gay is a choice and not of God. But also be so convinced that someone is gay even when they say they are not. If it’s a choice, why can’t they choose to be straight?

  • xenaD

    Why y’all doing Neyo like this?! What’s wrong with the wife?… or wat did I miss ???

  • CaramelDrop

    Still….. eff him though.

  • Judas & GOD

    lord I want to kiss you

  • Dainese

    Congrats… but for real. No one cares.

  • lovelygamour

    he wanted her to only have his kids. when he knew he was going to dump her for a lighter person. sad.

  • millz

    Monyetta Shaw talked about him having her tubes tied (burnt) with the impression they were having a future together once not wanting more children after the wedding… only to meet ol girl… marry her and have now 2 more kids… damn

  • Wyteprivilege

    Lol! Just keepin’ it trill…

  • lovelygamour

    if she wants to be real famous she needs to learn a craft. her husband has too much money for her to act like this. I watched a few episodes of the platinum life. she has the best spot cause she doesn’t have to do anything but be light and her husband has already made his money. so learn a trade or stop trying for the spotlight.
    I wonder if monyetta got that tv show would he had married her.

  • imright

    if she wanted more and he was so certain that he was done she should have made him get snipped?????that would have been my thought process. but i do feel like its a fckd up situation.

  • Allihave2say

    Chrystal is a hot hot mess!

  • Allihave2say

    Chile, I remember seeing some pics of Neyo at the beach in some very feminine beach attire to include a net wrap skirt. I’ve been trying to find it but I think it’s been scrubbed off the net.

  • Allihave2say

    “f it’s a choice, why can’t they choose to be straight?” – Because the chose to be gay.

  • Allihave2say

    I’ve never understood why he didn’t get a vasectomy if HE didn’t want anymore kids.

  • Allihave2say

    I do believe there was some underhandedness in his actions.

  • Allihave2say

    No man will play a kissing role with Gabby again. I’m sure Dwayne’s team members have been giving him the side eye in the locker room.

  • Allihave2say

    I don’t think she wants everyone to be gay. I think she tries educate her audience on somethings we need to be aware, trends and hidden things happening. I also think, in her own special way, she gives us nuggets to chew. Lastly I think she wants some of the folks to be honest and stop deceiving people about their lifestyles. Folks are getting killed, terminal diseases and so on.

  • Allihave2say

    No plan to prevent pregnancy is a plan to achieve pregnancy.

  • Allihave2say

    This pic right here^^^^. I had to do a double and triple take. Thought I’d developed glaucoma are something.

  • Tay Gee

    Because that made sense, smh.

  • Dahl

    Ne-Yo looks like he’s the one carrying the child with those wide, woman hips…

  • IamAllnatural

    Please find it?

  • IamAllnatural

    She made a sacrifice for the man she thought was going to be with her forever. He was wrong for telling her to tie her tubes. Then he left her and he can’t stop making babies. He is a selfish piece of $&@!

  • IamAllnatural

    They need to stop faking the funk.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I’m confused. He convinced Moneytta to burn her tubes, but married an on kid #4 with Crystal??

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I like Crystal…she looks like she is trying to be a good wife, she accepts his other kids and she want the cause of their divorce?????

  • Keepin’IT100

    Niggas and their high yella’s…

  • Keepin’IT100

    Monyetta was on a show a while ago.. What happened?

  • Bob Dilla

    This!

  • shay2shaymd

    LMAO

  • shay2shaymd

    Yep, he is a piece of shit for that.

  • Simone

    Men are COLD ASF.

  • imright

    she should have waited until they were married. thats not a decision that u make with a fiancé. IMO but hey ?????everybody dont operate like me.

  • sunni_daze

    2nd with Crystal 4 total.

  • BorgQueen

    Neyo has his baby momma Monyetta have tubal ligation bc he didn’t anymore kids. Then he dumped Monyetta only to have 2 more kids. Monyetta thought they were getting married so she did it and now she can’t have more kids, while this fool is still procreating

  • Look@m3

    Showl was with Usher ex wife and Cee Lo Ex Guess it didn’t make it. I actually watched it.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    LOL..You know that doglion… lol

  • Miss Thang

    This is why women should not follow these men like they’re God’s gift. They ALWAYS move on with the next woman, then the next, then the next.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    You lost me at “educate”. Gossiping about his ex being gay is not education. It’s gossip, gay gossip. referring to this post only…

  • IamAllnatural

    Married or engaged doesn’t stop a man from leaving you.

  • Allihave2say

    LOL. I sawry! You right about that but IJS.

  • ?Royalty?

    This is why you won’t catch me altering my body or harmones for some guy.

    Talk about a kick to the teeth. The message, “I dont love/like/need/want or care about you” was made horribly clear.

  • ?Royalty?

    Even if someone didnt believe in God or religion – straight would be the choice of evolution – so life could continue. If evolution made “g@y” – evolution would collapse on itself since two people of the same s3x cannot procreate. G@y is an endgame.

  • Tay Gee

    This entire paragraph is deflecting to your religious beliefs, smh. I don’t care who or what you believe in honestly, because it has nothing to do with me.

    My point was there are several comments accusing this man (Neyo) of being gay even though he has said repeatedly that he is not. So if he “chooses” to be straight then let the man be, instead of trying to prove he’s not.

  • ?Royalty?

    Deflecting? You mean “Deflecting sweetie. And YOU original poster went after the Christian religion even tho the J3ws and Mooslims disagree with the lifestyle choice just the same.

    Now YOU don’t care about my beliefs since I’ve answered your question and you have no rebuttal? ?? Funny how that works.

    #Blocked

  • Tay Gee

    Your rebuttal is based in religion which I refuse to argue about. Your deflection to my original post is clear. As far as creation, I can assure you that a world full of LGBTQIA people would certainly be able to survive and create new life. Gay is not the end game, but religion has come close. (See all wars related to religion.) #haveaseat

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Exactly. Definitely a kick in the teeth.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    got it, thanks.

  • Bashi22

    Moneytta is silly too why would do such thing he never married you . Plus she did threesome with him and wrote it in her book.

  • EMILY POST

    I like his songs but nah I didn’t need to know nothing about his personal life…. but all his women hoped on television…. and after they got on television telling their stories.. The first one seemed slow and this one… if he is happy then thats all that matter.. Damn. All you got to be is light for todays Nublack if thats the type of woman he wants to raise his kids more power to them.

  • lovelygamour

    that show was in response to her neyo situation. her and neyo was trying to get on or start a reality show but it didn’t happen. then he left. that why it looks suspicious.
