Ne-Yo on His Wife Crystal Smith’s VBAC Plans

R&B singer-songwriter and producer Ne-Yo opened about his fear surrounding his wife Crystal Renault Smith’s upcoming attempted VBAC, the abbreviated term for vaginal birth after C-section.

As is commonly known, Caesarean section births carry more risk than vaginal ones  because a Caesarean section, which is major surgery, requires anesthesia, an army of specialists, nurses and pediatricians in the operating room prior to and after delivery.

A lot of women who plan vaginal births but end up getting C-sections often attempt vaginal deliveries afterwards.

That might precisely be the reasoning behind Crystal’s decision but it isn’t without risks and fear.

“I’m a little nervous just because [in] our first pregnancy, there were a few complications to the point where she had to get an emergency [cesarean] section,” he explained to the magazine after stopping by its Nowstudios. “This time, she is determined to not go c-section — she wants to do it the natural way.”

He continued:

“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. I just want to meet him.”

Crystal has been doing everything usually prescribed to have a quick labor and delivery including exercising regularly and staying fit.

Wowza!

This would be the second child for the couple who is expecting a second son. They are parents to himsel Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr born in March 2016.

Ne-Yo is also dad to 7-year old daughter Madilyn Grace and 6-year old son Mason with his ex fiancé actress Monyetta Shaw. 

Ne-Yo’s Wife Crystal Smith Criticized For Negative Description of Son’s Hair Texture


After describing her child’s hair negatively and praising her own fine textured hair as “blessed” “Hawaiian Silk”, Internet users gathered second-time mom-to-be Crystal Smith all the way up to school her on her outdated attitude towards kinkier African textured hair.

“So my son wasn’t blessed with Mommy’s ‘Hawaiian silk’ as my sister likes to say,” Bossip reported the second-time mom-to-be captioning an Instagram post of a photo of herself and her son. “Can anyone suggest some good products or moisturizers? Nothing I’ve tried will help the dryness. His hair seems to soak up everything instantly.”

Following the outrage from followers and fans over the since-deleted tweets, Smith declared her intentions to convert the learning moment into a business opportunity in an Instagram stories post, vowing to create a hair care line for children of mixed race heritage.

“Thank you guys for the negativity, because once again I’m going to channel it into something positive,” she can be heard in the social media share taken in her car. “I am now in the process of creating a hair care line for mixed children … so thank you once again.”

Ok. Good luck with that, Mrs. Smith. The couple married shortly before welcoming their first child, son, Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr. Ne-Yo has a 7-year old daughter Madilyn and 6-year old-son Mason (Irish Twins) with his ex-girlfriend, and our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Monyetta Shaw.

The Smiths’ are expecting their second child later this year.
