R&B singer Ne-Yo has announced that his first-child is on the way.
Ne-Yo is expected to become a father for the first-time when the baby is born in January.
Surprise! He had to come home so he could make the first ultrasound visit with his girlfriend. There’s no word on the sex of the baby because the tiny tot curled up in a ball, leading Ne-Yo to joke that his future progeny is “stubborn.” But, he added, “They didn’t get that one from me.” The star, whose album is due on September 21, is excited about meeting his first child in January. “I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I’m very, very, very excited about that,” he tells EBONY. “It’s a New Year’s baby and I’m just in a really good place right now.” (Ebony Jet)
In the past, Ne-Yo has reportedly talked about wanting more than one child.
Ne-Yo was previously quoted stating that he wants exactly two children, ” a girl and a boy,” before admitting the first guy who attempts to date his daughter is going to be in trouble… “When the first guy comes to my door asking for my daughter, I might end up going to jail,’ he told USA Today. “I just don’t know how I’ll handle that.” (Examiner)
In early June, Ne-Yo talked with SOHH about receiving an on-stage lap dance from Paris Hilton in Las Vegas.
“Shout-out to Paris Hilton, [laughs], that’s the homie,” Ne-Yo told SOHH. “I was in Vegas, I was performing and she was there, and I saw her and pulled her on stage. And that’s what it was. She’s cool people though. I don’t know Paris well enough to be like, ‘Yeah! This and that…’ but I know I was in Vegas, she was in Vegas, and I seen her in the crowd and pulled her on-stage, she didn’t have to come on stage so I gotta give her a shout-out for even doing that. I’m cool with her as far as that goes and yeah, we’re cool people. She looked like she was having a good time before she got on stage so once she got on stage, it was an even better time. It was all good.” (SOHH)
Aside from romance rumors, Ne-Yo is currently putting together his new album, Libra Scale.
As you may know, Ne-Yo is dropping a new album called Libra Scale this summer, and the first single from it is a Euro-dance track called “Beautiful Monster.” Well, yours truly didn’t like “Beautiful Monster” one bit, and was almost ready to boycott the album, to be honest. But now Ne-Yo’s gone and dropped another, much catchier single called “Champagne Life,” and I’m (almost) back on the bandwagon again. The song’s a Michael Jackson-esque tune about enjoying the type of life where “trouble is a bubble in a champagne glass” and “dreams and reality are one and the same.” Ne-Yo’s Libra Scale isn’t due out until Sept. 21, but you can stream his “Champagne Life” now.
