Hold off on buying those wedding gifts; singer Ne-Yo took to Twitter earlier today to announce that he is not engaged to his baby’s mother, Monyetta Shaw.
“To put all rumors to rest. Not engaged but am expecting second child,” he tweeted in response to a story in US Weekly that reported he and Monyetta were planning to tie the knot.
Many fans were happy to hear that Ne-Yo, who already has one child by the boutique owner, would be “making an honest woman of her,” as they say, but it seems he’s not ready for that level of commitment yet.
However, he hasn’t ruled it out.
“Know that the day I DO decide to take that step you will hear it from the horse’s mouth. Much love,” he wrote.
It’s not a huge surprise that Ne-Yo hasn’t proposed. In the past, the singer has been reluctant to even refer to Monyetta as his girlfriend. It remains to be seen whether she’ll ever achieve wife status.
