Ne-Yo and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world this weekend.
People.com reports that Monyetta delivered Madilyn Grace Smith on Friday night. This is Ne-Yo’s first child, and he couldn’t wait to tell the world about her arrival.
“Salutations all. As my life transforms due to the new life that sprung up on me last night, it’s good to know my folks support,” Ne-Yo tweeted on Saturday. “Much luv to my twit fam and everybody showin’ luv to my new addition!! She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in luv for the first time.”
Monyetta went into labor on Friday while Ne-Yo was performing at a benefit, but he was able to make it to the hospital for his daughter’s birth. The baby arrived about two months earlier than expected, and the proud papa said Madilyn has changed his whole view of the world.
“Welcoming that lil’ girl to the world last night defined for me what ‘willing to kill and die for’ truly means,” Ne-Yo wrote. “My world, my life, all hers.
