Ne-Yo has two big reasons to celebrate — the singer confirmed on Monday that he’s engaged and he and his new fiancée, Crystal Renay, are expecting a baby.

“Clearing the air..@mscrystalrenay and I are ENGAGED to be married next year. And yes we are expecting #FromTheHorsesMouth,” Ne-Yo, 35, announced via Twitter.

Speculation that REnay was pregnant started on Sunday when Ne-Yo posted a photo on Instagram of his fiancée holding a black-and-white image of the pair, in which he cradles her barely there bump.

“Surprise!!!!!!!!!” Ne-Yo captioned the photo.

The R&B singer is already father to two other children — a daughter, Madilyn Grace, 4½, and a son, Mason Evan, 3½ — from his previous engagement to Monyetta Shaw.

Ne-Yo also took to Twitter on Monday to set the record straight following an appearance Shaw made on VH1’s Hollywood Exes, in which she revealed that she had her tubes tied when they were together so that they wouldn’t have any more children.

“Clearing the air..I didn’t force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth,” he wrote in a separate tweet.
