Ne-Yo and his wife have announced the gender of their unborn baby. It looks like the happy couple are expecting a boy.
Ne-Yo shared the news in an ecstatic post to his Instagram.
HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE IT’S A BOY!! Now Princess Maddie has 3 lil’ protectors to hold her down for life! You’re gonna be a GREAT big sister to your 3 lil’ brothers babygirl Mason, now you got 2 lil’ cats that are gonna be stealing your clothes, bugging you to tag along n’ whatnot…go easy on em’. They’re gonna look up to their big brother. Give them something to look up to! @itscrystalsmith My Queen. I know you had your heart set on a girl. To be honest I did too But clearly you were born to give the world kings! And I’m more than happy with that. Love you baby. You shine… THANK YOU to everybody that came thru and shared the moment with us. THANK YOU to every single person that helped make the moment possible
Along with the posts were pictures of the cute and celebratory way in which the family found out the gender. They each held tubes full of color-coded confetti and popped the lids at the same time. The blue confetti rained down on Ne-Yo and Crystal Smith’s already large fam to let them all know that a baby boy was on the way.
As far as gender reveals go, it was a bit more low-key than Toya Wright’s affair. She threw a party and had a camera crew film the whole thing. The crew went around and asked Toya’s famous friends to pick a team and let it be known whether they were rooting for a boy or a girl.
In spite of the showy video, anonymous sources said that Toya is trying to keep her public appearances low because she’s concerned about her image. The author and reality star doesn’t want people to associate her with her pregnant body, according to unnamed insiders who spoke to The Jasmine Brand.
“She’s keeping her public appearances to a minimum right now because she’s beginning to show,” they wrote in their coverage of the party. “People just thought she was getting thick, but she’s carrying for two now.”

Back to Ne-Yo. The singer is bringing more than just babies into the world. The one-time superstar is trying to return to R&B off his new album Good Man. He dropped the album in late 2017, explaining that it’s a move away from his pop days toward a grown-up album.
“I’m calling it that because that’s what every woman wants and what every man should strive to be,” he told The Breakfast Club. “You’re not born a good man. You gotta go through some stuff, let some things happen, in order to become a good man.”
And in spite of the good times he’s going through, the album has some tear-jerkers.
“All the music on this album isn’t gonna be happy because I didn’t write just completely about myself,” he said. “I felt like, if I just write it about me, how can it be relatable to anybody else? I’m definitely happy and in a great place, but I know that everybody isn’t.”
