Ne-Yo Announces Sex of First Child

Ne-Yo

Ne-Yo has reason to pop bottles and celebrate the “Champagne Life” now that he’s learned the sex of his first child, who is set to make an entrance into the world in January 2011.

The R&B crooner, whose new album Libra Scale is due October 5, revealed the news in a celebratory post via Twitter today. “LADIES AND GENTS!!! I’M HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT I’M HAVING A BEAUTIFUL BABYGIRL!!! THANK YOU GOD,” he wrote.

Monyetta Shaw, the mother of Ne-Yo’s child, is currently about four months pregnant. The 30-year-old singer-songwriter attended one of Shaw’s ultrasounds several weeks ago, which was a first for him. During the initial doctor’s visit, the sex could not be determined due to the baby curling up into a tight ball. As a result, Ne-Yo dubbed his offspring “stubborn.” “They didn’t get that one from me,” he told EBONY magazine.

Despite rumors that Ne-Yo and Shaw do not have a serious relationship intact, the father-to-be is focusing on the upcoming bundle of joy that’ll be entering his life. “I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I’m very, very, very excited about that,” he said. “It’s a New Year’s baby and I’m just in a really good place right now.”

    @Kwabena: A latter paternity test showed he was NOT the father of that kid.

    @Perio & @Nick: Folk used to say the same about Alicia Keys too…but now we know the truth.

    This dude is still as gay as a three dollar bill. Gay people can have children too, you know. In a recent interview, he called his baby mama a ‘friend’ which basically means she’s a surrogate.

    he’s wearing no lenses because he’s a poser and this whole nerd-chic trend needs to die.

    gay people have children, spouses, entire families, so having a child doesn’t make you heterosexual. it means he wants the rumors to go away and he wants to distract people from talking about it. there’s a reason NOBODY in hip hop/r&b comes out and that’s because it would mess with your money.

    unfortunately the black community is ridiculously homophobic and there’s no way anybody, even someone of alicia/ne-yo’s stature would be able to survive it.

    If he really is gay, then that’s sad that he has to hide it by going out and doing something big as getting a woman pregnant. Unless he actually wanted to have a kid I suppose. Anyway, congrats to him. I’m loving the songs from this new album, as usual.
