The couple announced their pregnancy and engagement in August, clearing up rumors that they were already married. This is Ne-Yo’s third child, following his daughter Madilyn, 5, and son Mason, 4, with ex-fiancée Monyetta Shaw.


The new mother also revealed that it wasn’t a smooth delivery, as an emergency C-section was performed due to complications. But Ne-Yo was by her side and all seem to be happy and healthy now.


After tying the knot last month in an oceanside wedding, Ne-Yo and welcomed their first  together on Wednesday (March 16). Renay posted a picture with her newborn son on Instagram, declaring, “Prince Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr has arrived! 6lbs 8oz, 19 inches.”
