Ne-Yo: Fatherhood Is “The Most Enjoyable Fear”

His daughter Madilyn Grace is just 1 month old, but it sounds like fatherhood has already had a pretty profound impact on R&B star Ne-Yo.

“Fatherhood is scary as hell but it’s the most enjoyable fear that I’ve ever experienced. Its love like I’ve never felt before. I’ve been in love with a woman before, I know what that is. I’ve been in love with music before I know what that is. I’ve never experienced love like this, its instant from the second I laid eyes on her. I would do anything to make sure she never hurts or needs for anything in life and I’ve never felt that before. It’s special at the same time it’s scary,” the new dad says in an interview with Detroit’s Gossip Girls.

Ne-Yo adds that he’s already feeling the weight of responsibility that comes with parenthood.

“You know I don’t got to tell y’all that the world we live in today is not the most positive place all the time so just thinking about the different things that I’m going to have to teach her, hoping that I teach her well that’s the scary part…but its gonna be fun I’m gonna enjoy myself.”
