"Overjoyed to announce......the family is expanding...👶🏽!" the Grammy-winner captioned his Instagram video. "🥰🥰🥰You ready baby? Let's go!"

NE-YO recently opened up to PEOPLE about fatherhood and spending time with his children amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's been a little chaotic, but I've always been one to roll with the punches and by the grace of God, my family is the same way," the star said. "More time in the house just means more time to spend together, more time for us to enjoy each other and more time for them to break more things."

With a new baby on the way, NE-YO is excited to have found his footing at home.

"Before this whole thing happened, I can now admit I was very much a parent that did a lot of my parenting through FaceTime and stuff like that because I was always moving and traveling and doing things to bring home the bacon," he told PEOPLE.

"I didn't realize how special it is to actually get up in the morning and eat breakfast with my kids. Not just for the kids, but for me too. We get up to get our bowls of cereal. We get in front of the TV and we watch whatever cartoon is on until it's time for me to do what I've got to do."
