Ne-Yo Poses for Father’s Day Portrait with His Kids

Ne-Yo can’t hide the smile on his face in PEOPLE magazine’s Father’s Day special. The 32-year-old father proudly poses with his daughter, Madilyn Grace, 18 months, and son, Mason Evan, 8 months.

“Madi’s a little rough and tumble with me because she was my first kid, so all of the little boy things I wanted to do, I did with her,” said the R&B singer, who lives outside Atlanta with the mother of his children, Monyetta Shaw.

His daughter takes after him with her fly fashion (“She loves clothes”) and he calls his son the “most mellow baby on the planet.”

Just last month, Ne-Yo released “Lazy Love,” the first single off his upcoming album R.E.D., due September 18.
