Ne-Yo & Monyetta Shaw Engaged & Expecting!
It seems RnB superstar Ne-Yo really is living up to his moniker.
Ne-Yo got a big yes when he proposed to his partner Monyetta Shaw. And it has emerged it is a double celebration for the couple, as they are also having a second child.
Last November the happy couple had their first child together, Madilyn Grace.
And despite awaiting the special arrival, his partner is still hard at work opening Emaralyn and Ester, a new boutique in Atlanta’s Buckhead district.
Ne-Yo, who has had two chart-topping albums in the US was over the moon when Madilyn was born last year.
He said: ‘She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in love 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.’
Family is very important to the star, who was raised by his mother alone after his parents split up.
He has founded a charity called The Compound Foundation, which helps children in foster homes fulfil their potential.
The generous star said: ‘Every Mother’s Day we select five foster mothers that are going above and beyond, and we make the whole day about them.
‘Either I’ll perform or I’ll get one of my friends to perform and it’s just a whole day dedicated to those foster mothers, giving them the opportunity to just take a break and be appreciated.
‘We’ve gone to visit the families, we do a camp every year. An entrepreneurial camp. Just making sure these kids get those opportunities.’
