Ne-Yo: 'Fatherhood Is Scary As Hell But It's The Most Enjoyable Fear.' Can You Relate?

The R&B star admits that his entire world has changed since the birth of his daughter, Madilyn Grace, one month ago.

Ne-Yo is used to singing about love but he never realized just how deeply he could love something until the arrival of his daughter, Madilyn Grace. “It’s love like I’ve never felt before. I’ve been in love with a woman before, I know what that is. I’ve been in love with music before I know what that is. I’ve never experienced love like this, its instant from the second I laid eyes on her,” he tells Detroit’s Gossip Girls about the 1-month-old he has with girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.

And now the first-time father, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, is devoting his life to making sure his little lady, who was born two months before her January due date, is safe and sound. “I would do anything to make sure she never hurts or needs for anything in life and I’ve never felt that before. It’s special at the same time it’s scar,” says the 31-year-old.

But the thought of being responsible for such a tiny, innocent being, is freaking him out, he admits. “Fatherhood is scary as hell but it’s the most enjoyable fear that I’ve ever experienced,” he says. “You know I don’t got to tell y’all that the world we live in today is not the most positive place all the time so just thinking about the different things that I’m going to have to teach her, hoping that I teach her well that’s the scary part…but its gonna be fun I’m gonna enjoy myself.”
