It's wedding bells and baby booties for [artist id="2002414"]Ne-Yo[/artist]. The "Closer" singer is engaged to longtime girlfriend Monyetta Shaw, and the happy couple are expecting their second child together.
According to Us Weekly, the baby announcement was kept under wraps for most of Shaw's pregnancy. A source told the mag the baby is expected as early as October, which is just two weeks away.
Despite being busy with her pregnancy, Shaw has also been working on a new boutique in Atlanta called Emerlyn & Ester, set to open soon in the city's upscale Buckhead District.
Ne-Yo (real name: Shaffer Chimere Smith) welcomed his first child, daughter Madilyn Grace, back in November 2010 and was ecstatic about becoming a father. "Feels like I'm in luv for the first time," he tweeted at the time. "Welcoming that lil' girl to the world last night defined for me what 'willing to kill and die for' truly means. My world, my life, all hers."
The couple have not revealed when they plan to marry.
The last time we checked in with Ne-Yo, the exuberant 31-year-old's mind was on music and his showstopping VMA performance of "Give Me Everything" with Pitbull.
"This is my first time performing at the VMAs, so this is going to be big," he promised. "This was the show where, before I made it, where I was like, 'When I make it, yeah, I definitely got to do that one.' And I'm here. I'm happy. I'm definitely beyond happy. I'm gonna maintain; very ecstatic to be here."
