Singer-songwriter Ne-Yo is gearing up for his latest release: a baby!

Shaffer Chimere Smith — better known as his stage name Ne-Yo — and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw are expecting their first child in January, he reveals to EBONY.

“I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way and I’m very, very, very excited about that,” Ne-Yo confirms. “It’s a New Year’s baby and I’m just in a really good place right now.”

Although eager to find out the sex, Ne-Yo — whose new album Libra Scale hits stores in September — and his girlfriend are still guessing after an uncooperative ultrasound!

“[The baby is] stubborn,” he jokes. “They didn’t get that one from me.”
