Ne-yo Ties the Knot with Fiancée Days before she Gives Birth


R&B crooner Ne-Yo and his fiance, mom-to-be Crystal Renay officially tied the knot this weekend, days before she is set to welcome the couple’s first child together.

“When I went to my first fitting, I had actually just found out the day before that I was pregnant, so from the beginning of the whole dress process, we knew that it would be a growing belly,” Renay told PEOPLE magazine. “I’m nine months pregnant – I’m nervous about falling on my face.”

Ne-Yo expressed his joy as well.

“This is big for me,” the Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter said. “I’m not doing this again, so I’m happy that my family and friends are able to be there to share this moment with us.”

Ne-Yo’s 5-year old daughter Madilyn and 4-year old-son Mason (Irish Twins) with his ex-girlfriend, and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Monyetta Shaw were not at the nuptials.

Apparently, as Shaw explained on her Instagram to quell the rumors and hate darts thrown at her, she is in the process of securing a placement for her children in an independent school and was busy taking the kids to open houses and school visits that weekend.

“Not that it’s anyone’s business I have a few secs to entertain since we are all done with these school visits for today,” she wrote on Instagram. “Any involved parent in search for the best school for their children knows how important this process is and I don’t take it lightly.”

 “My #1 concern & priority are my kids! NOTHING will EVER change that!!!  “she added.  Anyway, the kids are excited and looking forward 2 spending time with their father, new little brother and step-mom this summer.”
