My perfect lil #TBT! A week ago today God have me the most precious gift ever. I began to change Since the beginning of my pregnancy , the sense of calm that has come over me and my emotions is all due to Him! I feel more connected to this perfect little angel than I have anyone in my life. Don’t get me wrong SJ is the apple of my eye and no one will ever take the love I have or the place of my first born but it’s something so spiritual (and painful 🤨) about breastfeeding. I can’t really explain the connection. I wish I could keep him to myself forever 🤗 He May be daddy’s baby twin 🙄 @neyo but Roman is MINE 😍🤗 Hello world!!! I hope you’re ready for #RomanAlexanderRajSmith!!! P.s He has green eyes 🙌🏽 #TheQueenOfKings 👑 #WeMakeSomePrettyBabies @neyo
The 38-year-old World of Dance judge attended the BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday and told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s poop to here,” pointing to his elbow.
“No sleep but it is the best thing you will ever do in life,” he gushed.
NE-YO and his wife Crystal married in February 2016 and are parents to their 2-year-old son Shaffer Chimere Jr. NE-YO has two children from a previous relationship with Monyetta Shaw: son Mason Evan, 6, and daughter Madilyn Grace, 7.
Crystal shared a series of photos a week after Roman’s arrival into the world. In one of the pics, Roman is resting on Crystal’s chest while the two are still in the hospital. In a second shot, the newborn is fast asleep wrapped up in a star printed blanket.
On Monday the new mother posted an Insta Story of her little guy. With a full head of hair, the cutie is gazing off to the side. Crystal wrote, “He’s so BEAUTIFUL.”
She wrote alongside the series of photos, “God have me the most precious gift ever, “ she went on to gush, “I wish I could keep him to myself forever.”
NE-YO previously told People that his initial reaction when he found out he was having a third son took him by surprise. “I was banking on another girl because I have two boys already. I wanted to have two boys, two girls.”
And he revealed his daughter Madilyn was also banking on getting a sister, “When we found out it was a boy, my oldest daughter just started boohooing. She so desperately wanted a little sister, so badly.”
