Shaffer Chimere Smith, better known by his stage name Ne-Yo, has finally found his ‘one in a million’. The American R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and actor tied the knot with her long-term girlfriend Crystal Renay over the weekend.
The So Sick singer and his model fiancé got married in a beautiful ceremony held at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, in front of family and friends.
Though the bride is 9 months pregnant, she was stunning.
The unborn child will be Ne-Yo and Crystal’s first child together.
The renowned singer is already a dad to daughter Madilyn Grace, 5, and son Mason Evan, 4, all from a previous relationship.
During an interview with People Magazine, Ne-Yo said, “We can’t wait to start our life together. We’re looking forward to just being each others’ best friend. I kind of knew right away from that first encounter, that there was something different about her, something special.”
The two love birds began dating shortly after meeting each other for a possible collaboration for his 2015 album Non-Fiction. From there, the Grammy award winner knew then they had a special connection.
Late last year, the musician was in the Nairobi for the recording of Coke Studio Africa Season 3.
Unlike the previous year where Wycliffe Jean remixed one if his hit songs, Ne-Yo recorded a brand new track for that season.
