It's a girl! R&B singer Ne-Yo has announced he's welcomed his fifth child, a girl — and his third with wife Crystal Renay.
According to E! News, Isabella Rose Smith's arrival — which came four weeks before Crystal's actual due date — was announced on Instagram.
"God said don’t make plans honey! She came 4 weeks early but right on time for mommy! Born at 11:11 am (lucky lil lady) 5 lbs 7 oz of perfection 🥺🥰 My world is finally complete," wrote Crystal in the caption. She also posted a photo of little Isabella with her face obscured by a heart emoji.
You can check out the formal announcement below.
Isabella joins her siblings Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr., 5, and Roman Alexander-Raj Smith, 3. Ne-Yo, himself, also has two children from a previous relationship with, Monyetta Shaw: Madilyn Grace Smith, 10, and Mason Evan Smith, 9.
The couple first announced their pregnancy back in February 2021, while they were celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary.
"Overjoyed to announce...... the family is expanding...👶🏽!" he wrote. "You ready baby? Let's go!"
The birth of Isabella comes hot on the heels of the couple's recent reconciliation. Ne-Yo and Crystal briefly split in February 2020, only to reunite shortly thereafter, and culminating with Ne-Yo re-proposing to his wife at the end of 2020.
"It has been a bumpy beautiful, tragically terrific ride full of twists n' turns, up's n' down's…and I wouldn't have it any other way," he said. "We've grown so much. With the understanding that we've still got some growing to do, of course, I have to acknowledge how far we've come. I think once we both realized that marriage isn't ownership...but a partnership, we found our tempo, our melody. And now we've become a beautiful harmony. I pray we sing this song forever. You fell in love with a songwriter, so the words come easy and can be mistaken for pacification. But I love you like lungs love oxygen. So I'm gonna SHOW YOU as often as humanly possible."
We love, love! Congratulations are in order to the happy couple!
