Madilyn Smith: Ne-Yo's New Daughter!

Ne-Yo and his actress girlfriend Monyetta Shaw are the proud parents of a daughter!

Monyetta delivered Madilyn Grace Smith on Friday night (November 12) in Atlanta, People reports.

“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,” Ne-Yo tweeted.

“Welcoming that lil’ girl to the world last night defined for me what “willing to kill and die for” truly means,” he added. “My world, my life, all hers.”

Ne-Yo was reportedly at a charity event for his foundation when he got news Monyetta had gone into labor. He then rushed to the hospital just in time for the birth!

The baby, the first child for the R&B star, 31, had been due at the beginning of January.

Congrats to the new parents!!!

    congrats to them hopefully the little one is healthy and Happy. though it’s kind of uncommon for first-borns to come prematurely unless the mother has an incompotent cervix or the baby was getting to big. though in Monyetta’s case I’d guess it was the former and I’d guess the baby weighed about 5lbs at 32 weeks gestation if she was due in early january and an average newborn is supposed to weigh 7.07 at birth if born at full term

    bet baby girl is beautiful and her parents are happy to have her

    Congrats to the couple I hope the baby is healthy! This is the first child for both of them. The little boy turned out not to be Ne-Yo’s it was all brought out when the girl tried to take him to court for support. She testified that even though he wasn’t the father he acted like he was and should have to pay. The court did not agree and ruled that he was not responsible for the child since it was not his.

    Is it that big of a deal that they aren’t married? They both are committed and love their daughter. Maybe they will eventually marry but hollywood marriages never last, so I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. They’re saving their daughter from having to deal with a divorce.

    @jessemosslover: How is that an issue? What is important is that both parents being a present and positive part in the life of the child. Get over your asinine negativity and let them worry about their’s well being. Botton line: Not your concern Mr/Ms Perfect.
