Ne-Yo And Wife Crystal Smith Welcome A Baby Boy; Share Name & Adorable Photos

The Baby Is Here! 

Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Smith, who welcomed their second child together on Thursday, have shared the first images of their "beautiful" baby boy, Roman Alexander-Raj Smith.

Crystal took to Instagram over the weekend to share images of herself and husband cradling their tiny bundle of joy.

The new addition was born on Thursday at 2:11 p.m. at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California, weighing 6 lbs., 15 oz., and measuring 19 inches in length.

“He’s so BEAUTIFUL,” She captioned the first social media post after the birth

Crystal is thankful their son is healthy, but admits her birth plan had to be scrapped.

Ne-Yo's wife shared, "I had an ironclad birth plan and I was determined to do it my way. But God had other plans apparently. A routine doctors visit on Thursday and I was rushed straight to the hospital and surgery less than a hour later! Roman wasn’t doing well in my womb and had to be taken immediately or the doctors feared the worst. Scariest moments ever!!! But he’s here and he’s healthy and we are so happy!!!!!!"

She adds, "Thank you @neyo for giving me the one thing I’ve always longed for.. my very own family! I love you and these kids so much. #SmithGangGrows #KingRo#BreastIsBest (can’t you tell I’m so happy rn)."

Crystal and Ne-Yo are also parents to 2-year-old son Shaffer Chimere Jr. Roman is the third son for the singer who has two children from a previous relationship with Monyetta Shaw: son Mason Evan, 6½, and daughter Madilyn Grace, 7½.

The "World of Dance" judge wed Crystal in February 2016. They welcomed their son Shaffer three weeks later, revealing in October 2017 that they were expecting their second child together. 

When it’s all said and done make sure you choose a man that loves his kids over everyone ... even YOU. That’s a #Goodman #MyBoysAreBlessed 🙌🏽

Ne-Yo was thrilled over the pregnancy news, but couldn't help but be concerned for his wife due to complications Crystal experienced during her first pregnancy.

Crystal required an emergency cesarean section due to pregnancy complications. 

"The complications that were [present] could still exist, so there’s a little bit of nervousness in there but above that, it’s more nervous excitement," Ne-Yo told People magazine in April. 

Crystal paid tribute to her husband on Father's Day, praising him for his parenting skills.

She shared a collage of photos on social media, writing in the caption, "These 4 are so lucky to have you as their daddy. @neyo The sacrifices you make for them are endless ( like cleaning projectile poop off the walls on Father’s Day 😥) 🙈🙈🙈 Happy Father’s day to all the dads out there! ( these are SJ’s baby pics.. pic #5 is Ro’s only one )."

Ne-Yo also shared a photo of himself with his newest addition, Roman, writing, "Happy Father’s day to ME....
#AndThenThereWereFour #RomanAlexanderRajSmith."

Happy Father’s day to ME.... #AndThenThereWereFour #RomanAlexanderRajSmith ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ @itscrystalsmith You did so good baby.

We send our heartfelt congratulations to the couple on their big news.
