“Born 6-14-18 at 2:11 pm 6pd and 15 ounces 19 inches long,” Williams shared on Friday, June 15, via Instagram. “He’s so BEAUTIFUL 😍.” She also revealed that her newborn’s name is Roman Alexander-Raj Smith.
Ne-Yo and Williams already have a 2-year-old son, Shaffer, together. Shaffer was named after his father, whose given name is Shaffer Chimere Smith. The “Let Me Love You” singer also shares a daughter Madilyn, 7, and son Mason, 6, with his former girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.
Ne-Yo who spoke with US Magazine at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on March 11, disclosed he was disappointed to discover he was expecting another son.
“I wanted a daughter. I did,” the 38-year-old father said. “I have one girl and now three boys. I wanted to kind of even it out with another girl. God said no, so it’s all good.”
He also added that his daughter, Madilyn was much more upset;
“My daughter was the most hurt by it. She really wanted a little sister,” he revealed. “But I told her, ‘No, no, because now you’re the queen. Now they have to do what you say.’ She was all right after that.”
Ne-Yo added that being a dad hasn’t changed his life too much, other than causing him to lose some shut-eye:
“I don’t sleep at all now. I didn’t sleep much before. Now I don’t sleep at all. No, in all honesty, it really hasn’t changed me at all. Now I’ve got people to act goofy with. You know what I mean? We jump on the bed together, and then the wifey comes and I’m like, ‘Hey, guys, get off the bed. Stop doing that.’”
Ne-Yo however laughed when asked if he and his wife of two years, would try again to have a daughter.
