Get ready for a great big ‘awww’ because Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Renay have just introduced us to their newborn son. Their newly shared pic shows off what a total cutie the one-day-old is.
Baby joy! Rapper Ne-Yo, 36 has an absolutely perfect newborn son and already he and his new wife Crystal Renay, 26 can’t wait to show him off to the world. Their baby boy Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr. was born on March 16, but already the proud parents are so thrilled with their little bundle of joy and want us all to see how adorable their precious child is!
Crystal shared an Instagram photo with her little son’s face looking at the camera while laying on his mother’s chest as she sports a giant grin. He has a full head of hair, big brown eyes and red lips and we can see why his mama is so proud of him. She captioned the photo, “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…🙈 THANK YOU @neyo for the greatest gift in the world! Love you to the moon and back daddy! #HeIsPERFECT #PrinceSJ 👑#Everythang!”
She also revealed that their new tot measures up at a healthy 6lbs 8oz, 19 inches. But litte Shaffer didn’t enter this world in a calm manner, as poor Crystal had complications during his birth!
“It was the scariest delivery ever and I ended up getting a emergency C-section cause of complications, but with the help of my amazing doctor @drsherryr and my super calming husband @neyo I was able to get through it all and come out with best reward in the world… SJ!!!!!” she shared in another Insgram post, while holding her baby’s tiny hand right after the delivery.
